Found a Penny with Some Help

Today my grandson and I took the garbage and recycling out to the dumpsters. This is quite the fun job for him. He is 3, going on 30, and always wants me to read the labels on the dumpsters warning about not climbing in, on, or around the dumpster or filling them unevenly and what can and can't be put in the dumpsters (can't = no tires, no liquids or chemicals, no biohazardous waste to name just a few). Fascinating stuff!

When we were done, we were walking back home and found this penny on the ground!

We went to the library Saturday and found one of his favorite movie, I Stink! If you haven't had the pleasure of  watching this one, I highly recommend it. It is a Storybook Treasures DVD with six fun, short stories. "I Stink" is one of the stories; it's the tale of a garbage truck! The other stories on "I Stink" are "Trashy Town," "Arnie the Doughnut," "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel," "The Remarkable Riderless Runaway Tricycle," and "The Beast of Monsieur Racine." Good times, let me tell ya!
