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...
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.
