Day 2786 – Bret Works At The Best School!

Last night, I got to check out the coolest event at Bret’s school, literature night! Classrooms were transformed into worlds from books. The Boxcar Children, Little House On The Prairie, Lemony Snicket, The Berenstain Bears, cookies and milk in honor of If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, they also had several Jeopardy! games about books, and my favorite room, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. It was amazing how the rooms were transformed. There were lockers with scenes from books too. It was all I could do to not jump up and down like a little kid. It was neat to see how much Bret’s students like him. Everywhere we went, kids were saying Hey Mr. G! I got one or two Hey Mrs. G’s!

The first room we checked out was The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe. You had to go through the wardrobe to get in!!!

In the winter section, they gave kids packages to carry and an obstacle course to carry them through. Then they had a beautiful map of Narnia. *swoon*

In the next room, we received a little vile of Aslan’s potion. (see below for a picture). There was a white witch handing out Turkish delight and if the kids ate it, they were frozen by the witch. But then someone had a fan with a lion around it and that was Aslan’s breath unfreezing them!

The stone table was there.

Another favorite room was the Berenstain Bears. They made their tree house!!!!

We sat by the fire for a few minutes too. 🙂

After we finished up, we were helping pack up and it turns out they were giving away books! I got some GREAT ones! I can’t wait to read them and pass them on!

What a great night. 🙂

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
