Waxing Poetic...

Here's my youngest son, Matt, who just recently turned 10, acting as Steve Irwin at the wax museum exhibit at school today. He's got total control over this bad croc-Crikey mate!
Okay, here's the ring leader, Ms. Jones, total spitfire, teacher extrodinaire and Matt's favorite. His math teacher, Ms. Ritchie is a real close tie. Anyway, Ms. Jones pulls no punches and takes no prisoners but makes learning fun. She's every bit energitic enough to keep so many fourth graders enjoying staying in line.
So the scenario for today's event at school was that the wax museum was coming for an exhibit for the school. There was a heat wave and all the wax figures melted. The fourth graders had to step in and work in their stead. It was a great event. Parent were welcome and each of the other grades had a chance to visit the library to observe the statures. Each statue was outfitted with a button to push so as to hear the "recorded" historical information for each character. It was pretty darn cool.
