March Break

Last week was March Break for my son and I managed to get him into four library activities last week. Our library is really good about organizing events for kids during spring break, the summer reading program, and basically any time of the year be it holidays or weekends.

Michael started the week off by listening to Chief Topleaf (He went to Michael’s kindergarten last year) talk about Indians. Chief Topleaf is a Mohawk Indian from our area.

It was only a hour but it was very well done. Chief Topleaf is a great speaker. Kids asked him about the paint that they wear and he said he doesn’t wear it because it burns his skin and he told the kids that when you see a Indian wearing yellow and red it means a friend for life. He spoke about his name and what it was like to be a Indian 500 years ago.

I think the highlight of the week was on Tuesday afternoon when Michael finally got to meet Geronimo Stilton. I actually got the chance to see him in October but at the time Michael didn’t want to go but after seeing my pictures and video he wanted to go and he was really happy to hear that the library was going to bring him over Spring break.
Michael admitted that he found this activity hard because it was 100% in French and he is only learning french. He did say it was alot of fun. It was an added bonus that he was able to get his books signed.


The first picture is of Michael waiting to get books 3, 4 and 5 signed. Then when everyone was done he sneaked back to get 6-7-12 and a Xmas book signed. Plus he nabbed two signed postcards for himself.

He was so happy to get his books signed as you can see by the picture.


Of course no author event is complete without a picture with the author. We also got to meet Linda’s Better With Books sister. She came in to get her books signed. It was really nice to finally meet her.

Another activity that was planned at the library was Lego Club. They just started this this year and they were so overwhelmed that they had to open a second time which was great because Michael was on the waiting list. The theme this meeting was Space and you can see all the things he managed to make in 2 hours. He loves playing with lego.
Thursday we had nothing and Friday was a Wii game which Michael said was okay.
That was our spring break how was yours? Did you have it yet?

  1. Vance is on his Spring Break now, but he’s got homework to do.

    I know how Michael felt about being at the event that was all in French. The first time I went to an event like that I was completely overwhelmed.

  2. Cindy, thanks for sharing the pics of your cutie and the events. I think that spring break is next week here. Since my kiddo is grown, I don’t pay as much attention anymore.

  3. Cindy,

    These pictures are so cute. You gotta love the libraries for helping moms keep their kids amused with interesting activities and socialization.

  4. Sounds like Michael had lots of fun! I especially like the pic of him looking pleased after his books were signed. He’ll grow up to be a book blogger yet!

  5. How fun!!! I love the pictures – what an adorable cutie!!! My daughter doesn’t have her spring break until the week of the 22nd. Nothing exciting planned, just hope to keep the kids from killing each other, lol!

  6. Sounds like your son had a great spring break! Kudos to your son for sticking out the 100% French presentation!

  7. I love the pictures of Michael!
    March Break starts the 15th here. I am actually planning activiites at my library. I have a science show featuring wiggly worms, the fire dept, a storyteller, a movie and making mouse pads planned! It`s going to be a busy week…

  8. Ah, he’s so cute! And he looks very pleased with himself at the lego table! Back to school now, though!

  9. I think it is great when you have places that organise events for kids like this. Not always the case where I am living at the moment. Your photos are lovely. I adore Geronimo Stilton books – so appealing for kids.
