This morning we went to something called Farm Tour Days which is a two-day period in our county where all of the local farms host a huge party with bouncey castles, hayrides, and 4-H displays. We went to the aforementioned farm where I once peed in the pumpkin patch (you better believe I had an impassioned discussion with the Wolvog about the importance of peeing before you leave the house). The ChickieNob was lured over to the vegetable art table where she constructed Arthur out of cucumbers, blueberries, green beans, and toothpicks. Oh, and carrot eyes.
As luck would have it, we fell deeply in love with Arthur; enough to kiss him and to hold him back from the demolition vegetable races. "Why would anyone want to speed Arthur down a hill in a roller skate?" the ChickieNob exclaimed, begging me to wrap up her vegetable love in a plastic bag and transport him to the steamy trunk of our car.
He lasted a few hours on our kitchen counter and was buried in our kitchen rubbish bin. Oh Arthur.
What are you showing today?

- If you would like to join circle time and show something to the class, simply post each Sunday (or earlier in the weekend or on Monday if you can't do Sunday), hopefully including a picture if possible, and telling us about your item. It can be anything--a photo from a trip, a picture of the dress you bought this week, a random image from an old yearbook showing a person you miss. It doesn't need to contain a picture if you can't get a picture--you can simply tell a story about a single item.
- Label your post "Show and Tell" each week and then come back here and add the permalink in the comments section below (make sure you don't just comment that you participated: add a link to your blog in your comment so people can click over). I post a new Show and Tell post every Saturday night or Sunday. I usually move people up into the body of the post every few hours.
- Oh, and then the point is that you click through all of your classmates and see what they are showing this week.
- If you want it...
I've now placed a Show and Tell archive on the sidebar that will be updated each week in case you miss it. And click here for the icon code if you wish to have it for your blog. It links to the archives.
