Field trip to the Library
[I thought I posted this last night but found it on my dashboard in draft form. Oops!]

On Thursday Emma's preschool took a field trip to the library. They attended a story time with "Rob the Builder." M went down to take pictures since he works on the same block. First Rob read three stories. Then he showed them his building tools. M says he really freaked Emma out because before he started he showed them a canvas bag and told them he had his snake in it. After that Emma had a hard time concentrating and kept stealing glances at the bag in the corner.

Finally he opened the bag. He handed Emma a heat gun to hold the snake at bay before he did. It was a plumbing snake. Half the kids were disappointed and half the kids were relieved. At the end of his program Rob the Builder let the kids run his power screwdriver and drive a long screw into a board. They were pretty excited about that.

As Rob packed up his gear the kids colored pictures of Bob the Builder and Muck. They had snack and got to go explore the kid's section of the library.

The kids play with their paint brushes as Rob reads "Ain't gonna paint no more!"

The infamous snake.
