Mystery Reader

I volunteered to be the "Mystery Reader" at Hallie's school yesterday. This is every Monday they have someone come in and it is a SECRET and read for 20 mins. I was to bring in Hallie's favorite books to share with the class. You know me and secrets... I chose a date at the beginning of the year :) She was so excited when I walked in the door it about made me cry!! She was so proud to introduce me to the class.

Her teacher said, "Who is this, Hallie?"
Hallie, "This is my mom.... her friends call her Candi, and our last name is Ladwig."

Too fun! I got these pics from her teacher today. They aren't the best of me... but the expression on Hallie's face made it worth posting! She never did sit back, she was on the edge of her seat and full of excitement the entire time!

It's a day I will never forget :)

11 friends had to say...:

That is so sweet ~ you can just see the pride in her face and excitement. Save it and bring it out when she about 13 or 14 years old.
