I was playing Mr. Mom today, so took my 2-1/2 year old to story time on the Arthur Foss. I wouldn't have learned about it had I not seen it mentioned on your blog yesterday.

It was fun; there were probably 15 kidlets there, as a result of one or two daycare centers bringing over a pile of kids.

It was pretty packed inside the Foss's galley, where storytime took place, but Courtney did a great job reading, no kids fell apart, and it wrapped up promptly. Nicely done, and thanks Joe, for mentioning it on here yesterday. I wouldn't have known about it otherwise.

I'm glad you had fun. My kids are just a little bit too old for this, but the Foss is a wonderful venue for all kinds of activities.
