Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

Did you know that today marks Dr. Seuss' birthday? The whole elementary school celebrated in different ways - wearing red & white, making Seuss hats, drawing, painting, and so on... their principal even dressed up as one of the characters and visited the classrooms. Very fun! During recess (indoor because of bad weather today), I got this picture of Meagan and some of her friends in their Seuss hats they made. You can't really see the hats very well, since it's a bad quality cell phone photo, but I still thought I'd share.


*Notice her interesting outfit?? She has been making up her own get-ups lately. They've been quite... um... interesting. And colorful. Today was orange skirt, flowered sleeveless shirt over a pink camo thermal shirt, black leggings, rainbow socks, and tennis shoes. Some day she will care if her outfits match. Today she does not. And I love it. *

Anyway, back to Dr. Seuss... I made this layout just for fun. Sometimes we say this quote for some random reason or another... "In my world, everyone is a pony, and they all eat rainbows, and poop butterflies." It IS difficult to imagine when using such a phrase would come in handy, but somehow we DO manage to throw it in every now and again.
(And if you have NO idea what I'm talking about, it's a line from the animated movie of Horton Hears a Who. You can check out a short clip of it here.)

journaling: 'okay, so it may be true... they may have taken a few liberties in the dialog that weren't in Dr. Seuss' original text, but the movie Horton Hears a Who still stays true to the good Dr.'s tale of loyalty, friendship, and respect for and value of the individual. what an important series of messages for not only children, but adults as well. His stories and statements are as timeless and valid today as they were in my own childhood.'
