Mama Monkey must have found the slip because she came to school just to deliver it personally to Mr. Howler. Mama Monkey also dropped off something for me to eat that evening as well. Little Ape piped in and said Mama Monkey didn’t want me to be home so early to pester her and that is why she came. That made me feel bad, until Squirrelly spoke up and told Little Ape that he was just cranky ‘cause HE was more full of gas then the sun.
When the bell rang, Mr. Howler ordered us to stay put until the school emptied. Once the halls quieted, he led us out of the back entrance to the school and into the forest. We took our backpacks and things and put them at the base of a tree. We all sat in the trees eating our snacks as we watched the sun set. Mr. Howler gave us a lesson about the stars, and then we were walked home. I hope we have more lessons like that, it was fun!
