Wednesday, June 1 is School Photo Day for bloggers. Join KB at Keenie Beanie, Clay at EduClaytion, me, and others as we post an embarrassing school picture from days gone by. Feel free to steal the above graphic if you wish to promote it. If you don’t wish to participate, just drop by our sites on Wednesday to laugh at us. We’re okay with that.
Chase McFadden and I are running a contest at StuffKidsWrite.com. Since it’s graduation season, ask your child this:
What is it important for adults to do?
Submit your child’s written response to stuffkidswrite (at) gmail (d0t) com. You’ll be entered for a chance to win a Starbucks gift card.
Please go to StuffKidsWrite.com to see a today’s new post, funny writing courtesy of my middle school students, who shall remain nameless even though they are smart and hilarious. The above graphic is a content clue.
This announcement might not change your life, but it might change your perspective.
My blogging friend, Amy, continues to sift through the remnants of her belongings after the tornado tore through her Joplin community last Sunday. As Amy posted on Facebook, “Throwing away glass-covered children’s books is unexpectedly sad.” If you wish to read her updates, go to her blog Life from the Trenches. Also, please consider donating to the Red Cross or to Amy’s paypal account (I give info here).
If you live in Calgary (or want to come visit next weekend), I have some double movie passes to Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer to give away. It’s premiering at the Scotiabank Chinook Centre on Saturday, June 4 at 10 a.m. The film is based on the books by Megan McDonald. (You have to love an early-reader series where the female protagonist has attitude and the brother is named Stink).
To enter, simply tell me in the comments that you wish to be considered. You can also retweet this post on Twitter or like my Facebook Page for additional entries. I’ll announce the winners next week.
As an added incentive, I will be at the movie with Vivian and William. My kids have never before seen a movie in the theatre. Why, you ask? Because this is what happens whenever they watch a full-length DVD. Be prepared to be entertained by the Ironic Mom sideshow.
