The best show and tell ever....

Jenna loves the boys across the street. Craig is a grad student at OU and Bret is a college freshman at Methodist College in NC. They are so good to Jenna and Jacob...and so patient with them. They always make sure they come and say hi when they get home from college...and always come over before they leave. Jacob likes both boys...but Jenna truly adores them. Craig and Bret were both home for Christmas, so the kids got to spend some time with them. Craig even made them banana pancakes on one of our snow days!

Right before Craig came home at Thanksgiving time, Jenna was trying to decide what to take for show and tell...and then said she wished she could take Craig or Bret. I later told Craig and Bret that story. On the night before Craig left to go back to school, he stopped over and visited. At one point he asked Jenna what she was taking for show and tell the next day...and then said he would be her show and tell. SO...the next morning Craig came to school (which happens to be the same elementary school he attended) and went to kindergarten to be Jenna's show and tell. She explained who he was, where he went to school, and why she brought him in. He even took time to answer some questions and talk to the kids. Of course, I snuck down to take some photos. She was so excited!!!

Later, Jenna wrote Craig a thank you letter to send to him at OU. It said:
Dear Craig,
Thank you for being my show and tell. I am glad you could make it. You were the best show and tell ever. I wish you were still in Van Wert. I miss you.
From, Jenna

Here are some photos of the best show and tell ever.....can you tell she's nervous???

I am so glad I got to see the pictures since I was out that day. Very cute and incredibly kind (and brave) of Craig to visit a kindergarten room! Deb

What a special thing for Craig to do for Jenna! I bet he'll be getting a Valentine:) Aunt Barb

That's sweet, and Jenna's pix really tell the story. Maybe he'll influence her to go to OU! We were heading down there this weekend, but it's too cold to enjoy walking around, so we postponed it. Yet another sign that I'm old.

Craig is indeed the best ever. He is so great with them and to go into Kindergarten is amazing. Love the pictures. MOM
