Notebook Day! (a.k.a. SepChristmas)

We had a special day on Monday!  It was Notebook Day!  I wish I would have taken a pic of the big ‘ole pile of wrapped up notebooks, but I was so excited to give them out that I forgot. Boo. 😦

But just like last year (and for many years, actually) my friends got a special gift wrapped up all special, with an even more special note attached.  Here’s this year’s note:

Then it was time to pass them out.  So each kiddo, one at a time, came up to sign the pledge (which I’ll share soon–it’s at school. 😦 ), get their secret package AND a new pen!  The smiles on faces where SO GREAT!!  Here’s a little bit of how our “signing ceremony” went:

Yeah…somehow I got cut off there at the end, sorry.  🙂

I love that DeShala was the one who coined this special day SepChristmas, since it was like Christmas in September!  Yep, love it.

So once everyone pledged that they were going to do their best to grow and learn as writers this year, it was time.  And so on the count of 3…

Here’s to a great writing journey this year, friends of Rm. 202!  Let’s get this party started!
