Greetings one and all,
I am just getting home for the South Carolina Early Childhood Conference where I had the opportunity to perform for several kindergarten classes as well as lecture to several educators. I had a great time and want to say "hello" to any who went to the lecture that might be reading this. If anyone has any questions about the magic routines/tricks that you learned about, don't hesitate to ask!
Well, on to the second part of the blog title, "New Additions." One the way home I stopped at a Burger King to get a healthy meal consisting of a classic chicken sandwich, a medium fry, a sprite and then a lovely chocolate milkshake. As I was leaving I saw a sign for a pet store called "Pet Safari" so on impulse I turned in - for those who have seen my elementary reading show, you know I like strange animals! As it turns out, the store had recently gotten in two new critters that I just happened to be searching for for the upcoming show for this summer and next school year for the "Catch the Reading Bug" theme. What were they you ask? I'm glad you asked, I'll tell you - they were two large Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches! I quickly bought them both and am now pleased to announce the addition of the two newest members of my magical safari friends.
They are quite friendly and make a lovely hissing noise when you touch them on the back! Very cool! It sounds very much like a snake. Right now they are moving around in there little box and probably eating the carrot that was placed in there - yes, carrots are their most favorite food!
Pictures will be posted shortly! Everyone have a great day!
