I knew that this limo was going to be a HUGE issue with Emma. She would be with me helping to set up the book fair, so I knew it was going to be nearly impossible to keep this secret from her. I also wanted to get pictures of Gage getting into the limo, because it will be a LONG time before he ever gets to ride in one again! When Emma and I got to the school I was so upset because I saw the limo parked and kids were already getting into it. I thought I missed it, until I discovered it was 6th grade girls getting into this limo. What are the chances of 2 limos arriving at Northridge to pick up different bunches of kids? I was relieved when I discovered that and quickly took Emma into the school and down to the library. The book fair was being set up in the front lobby of the school, but I needed to get Emma completely out of the area to prevent the big blow up. Juanita, thankfully, agreed to watch Emma in the library for me while I ran back upstairs to get ready for pictures. The boys were gathered up in the lobby and Toby was with them and had them all ready to follow her outside. When we got outside and rounded the corner, they saw the limo parked on the other side of the street and they were saying things like, "Oh wow! A limo! I wonder what famous person is here!" They were just chatting like crazy as we crossed the crosswalk and turned in the direction of the car. Tyson was joking and told the boys they were riding in the limo, because he had no clue at the time. As we walked up to it and Toby opened up the door, they totally flipped out!
Here is the limo waiting for the boys to come out of the school.
