Big Fun

The Ring Master and 3 clowns from the Ringling Brothers Circus visited our library - what a treat! They did a few tricks and told us some behind the scenes facts about life in the circus. Did you know they still travel by train and it is over a mile long?! Fascinating...

Anyway, Ella and Drew sat right there and loved every minute - clapping, yelling, and smiling big. Tyler sat with me at the edge of the room. He was a little skeptical and skeptical for Ty translates into ornery. You know that brief moment of silence after a crowd answers a question? This time that moment was filled with Tyler yelling, "NO!" at the top of his lungs.

Ringmaster: Do you like the Circus?
All Kids: YES!!
and just as their answer died down...
Tyler: NO!!

At the end of the show popcorn and juice were given to all the kids. Of course they had to eat theirs immediately, and as a result we were the last family there. As we walked down the hall a door opened and out popped the Ringmaster and the clowns! We walked down the hall with them and into the parking lot. Tyler was sandwiched between 2 of the clowns chit-chatting away. It was priceless.
