So the past two days have been a whirlwind of early school dismissal, impending ice doom, cancelled author visits, two-hour school delays, cancelled school days, many social media conversations, rescheduled author visits and in the end awesomeness.
This afternoon Quail Ridge Books and Tom Angleberger were able to work out a rescheduled time for his lost Princess Label Maker kick-off and many of the SMS Guys Read lads were able to be in attendance.
Mr. Angleberger was his usual gonzo self and everyone who made it out was throughly entertained.
I got to thumb wrestle the author as Darth Paper. I think we agree that I lost. The dark side always does. We all got to fold Origami Yodas and then Mr. Angleberger was nice enough to autograph and illustrate all of our books.
SMS Guys Read even walked out of the visit with two new posters for our classroom walls.
Now take a look at a few of our pictures from the visit as I go find a warm corner to read Princess Label Maker.
Let me know what you think in the comments. I can’t wait to see what those McQuarrie Middle Schoolers get up to next.
PS. I bought a label maker at Wal-Mart for the visit and the stupid thing is already broken, it just spits out garbled characters. Should we be taking this as a sign? Is the dark side afoot at SMS Guys Read?
