Hi everyone ~
Maxi's little brother, DJ, is in 1st grade this year where they all heard the story of the Gingerbread man. Each child was also given the oppotunity to bake his very own Gignerbread man. While the men were left cooling on the baking racks in the cafeteria, the children returned to their classrooms. Suddenly, the cafeteria ladies came running in!

The Gingerbread Men were ALL GONE! And... the children came to see... the crumbs on the cooling tables, the crumbs on the floor... the crumbs outside by the Pet Tree Steve, along with a note "catch me if you can!"

So now the first grade children of the school are asking everyone far and wide to please keep your eyes open for those unruly gingerbread men! And if you happen to spot one in your area, please do send the class a note saying where and when you saw him and what he was doing!

I've been told the children have a few weeks of exciting games and celebrations concering this unfolding story. If you see The Man, PM me, and I will send you the schools address so you can let this class know.....



Thank you very much!
Merme

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

Merme - do I understand this to mean that we are to send a note to the class telling them where we saw the Gingerbread man? So, they want to collect mail from all over the country and world? Very cute idea! Please PM me the address!

Yes, Tina, I did include you in the PM I sent Lynne. It is so fun we can do multiple recipeints now, isn't it?

So now I'm off to add Bali to our list.

Thanks, you guys!

It tickles me endlessly that this class reall does have a Pet Tree which they named "Steve". Steve?! They got it through the Adopt A Tree program, I think.

But Steve?

Just a note to say thank you to all the contributors to the Gingerbread Man's travels so far. The kids are really loving having the teacher read all the cards and looking at the photos and drawings that have been sent. They will wrap up the event on 12/21. Thanks, everybody.
