A Mouse at School

Timothy arrived in New Mexico on Monday, November 8th.
He arrived a day earlier than we expected,
but we were quite happy to see him.
He greeted his kin from the Craggy Moor
and made friends with a bear who was just his size.
The bear had clothes to spare and share,
so he immediately got to playing
"Goldilocks and the 3 Overalls".
This pair was too big...
This pair was the wrong color...
And this pair would be just right with a few adjustments....
He woke up before 5am, insisting on tailoring the blue denim overalls
to a better fit.
He dropped the back seam to leave room for his tail,
moved the velcro closure on the back,
and decided to take off the Boyds label.
Well, after he had done so much work to make himself presentable,
I couldn't very well leave him at home.
Tuesday became "Take Your Mouse to Work" Day.
A classroom is a good place for a mouse to play!
He enjoyed seeing the fall playground
right before the students came out to play.
He decided it was too cold to stay out much longer himself, though.
We went inside, and he put the number on the calendar.

And then met some of our classroom friends...
M is for Monkey and Mouse!

Having been warned by the coyote about children who grab stuffies,
he hid in the cabinet while the students were in the room.
All that cold, paper and dust in the cabinet made him a little stuffy!

He came out at the end of the day to see his photos on Flickr.
Does anybody like me?
Hello, new friends!!!!
