During the second week of school, both G-Bear and E-Bear had to fill "Me Bags" to bring to school.
This was a class activity to help the students get to know each other.
It was just as fun for us as a family to see what each of the children chose to put in the bag.
E-Bear was first to decorate and pack his bag.
His directions were to choose three things to help describe himself.
He started by making a lovely picture of our whole family to bring in lieu of a photograph.

To his family picture, he added his newest, most beloved Lego catalogue
and his favorite monster truck toy.
All in all, these were great choices, impressively representative of things that remind me of E-Bear.

G-Bear was next.
Her instructions were to choose 3-5 items to help describe herself.
G-Bear also did a great job choosing her items.
She asked E-Bear if she could bring his picture of our family and he happily obliged.
She also choose a bookmark that she stitched herself (because she loves to read),
her piano lesson book (because she enjoys playing piano),
and a green dress up necklace (because she likes to dress up and play make-believe).
We even included Buddy Bear in on the fun.
I gave him a bag to fill with objects that he enjoys.
He choose his racing yellow school bus and his crimson visor.
J-Bear didn't get to fill a bag, but she didn't want to be left out of the picture :).
What a crew! I am thanking God for each of these precious, perfectly unique Me Bears.
