Bear Picnic

Evan's class had a bear picnic on Thursday. They have been reading different bear books the last couple weeks. The kids were able to bring their bear to school for the picnic. Evan was thrilled to take his bear to school! He really enjoyed it.

Quick story behind this bear. My friend Jessica (who I've known my whole life) gave me this bear sometime when I was in middle school (I think). I could never get rid of it. It just had some sort of sentimental value to me. When Jessica had her daughter Laura, I gave her the bear back so Laura could enjoy it. Then later when I found out I was pregnant with Evan, Jessica gave me the bear back for him. This bear will always be in the family in some kind of way and may be passed down to other future children. That would be neat. He will always be with us. :)
