This past Monday was a very special day at one of the schools I teach at. Last spring our school was selected by the Timberwolves' Fastbreak Foundation to receive a library makeover. Over the past few weeks several members of the Timberwolves office staff spent hours and hours at our school, painting the library and putting together the new shelving and then re-stocking the library books on the shelves. The walls are the blue, green and white of the Timberwolves plus we got giant wall decals with the current Timberwolves players. Everything looks amazing!
Monday was the big celebration, with the Timberwolves people (along with school district administration) coming out to help us celebrate. A couple of the Timberwolves players were supposed to be there also but were running late from that morning's practice. They finally showed up after it was over and signed a few autographs. The organization has promised to bring the players back when they can come, but with the start of a brand-new season, it may be awhile before that happens, we'll see.
Crunch, the Timberwolves mascot was also along for the fun and even helped act out the book that was read aloud, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. It was great!!
After the celebration Crunch insisted he have his picture with me. Too bad I was in the middle of saying something when this photo was taken, I look like a big dorkis.

Thank you Minnesota Timberwolves!!!!
