Non-Summer Birthday school party ~~ Friday’s Hunt v1.21-- "U" is for ...

For the week of May 21st:  (1) Starts with U; (2) Week's Favorite; and (3) In the morning

(1) Starts with "U": Uncanny -- I had an Uncanny feeling that this was to be a bang out school party. KP's birthday is during the summer when school is not in session.  Therefore these kids don't have opportunity to have a birthday at school to let all the other kids help celebrate.

KP's school has a fix.  The children celebrate with their classmates during what is called a "non-summer birthday."  A day is set for this celebration for each student and the kids have a party.  KP's was on her way to hers.

In the white sack is a bag of donuts, one for each student plus the teacher, plus a few extras.  Her sack contains 23 donuts, they bought two dozen and KP is having one with her chocolate milk on the way to school.  BTW, the school the building you can see through the car's back window.

I found out last night that KP didn ' eat a donut on the way to school.  Instead she had a dozen donut holes.  She ate eleven and Mom had one.

"un·can·ny -- ənkanē -- adjective
 - adjective: uncanny; comparative adjective: uncannier; superlative adjective: uncanniest


(2) Week's Favorite:  The Ginger Plants are in bloom.  They always come late in Spring, after most other plants have finished flowering.  These pretty pink blossoms will only last for a week or two.  Then very large leafed green talks will come up from scratch.

(3) In the morning:  The vultures, ten of them, came to eat the poor little deer that got run over by a car in the middle of the night.  You can see it laying in the foreground.  Their mother called a meeting before breakfast to divide up the parts of meat among her brood.

thank goodness for Vultures. Now KP is like the Queen with 2 birthday dates. how wonderful and marvellous of the school to have come up with this brilliant idea. I hope you will pop in to see my images and until next week, have a wonderful time.
Cheery, cheery and vultures?
Hello, Jim! KP is adorable, cute photo. Your ginger plants are lovely. It is a good thing we have the vultures to clean up. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.
Looks like KP was very happy to be going to school with a treat for everyone. I love the ginger in bloom, don't have that plant in my garden. Enjoy the weekend.
KP is so adorable. I hope she had a good birthday with her class.

Poor little deer. I hate seeing them hit by vehicles.

Have a fabulous day. ☺
Hello, Jim! I hope you have a very wonderful weekend.
What a great idea. I always felt cheated. My birthday is December 29th and we were always out of school for the Christmas holiday then. I was so envious of the kids that got to stand up while the class sang Happy Birthday to them. I'm glad KP's school has found a solution.
KP is adorable! It's nice she gets a day to share treats. I keep thinking I would like to try and grow ginger, but I think I'd have to overwinter it inside. Beautiful flowers. Nature certainly does have an efficient clean-up crew. Thank you for sharing with Friday's Hunt. I hope you have a great week!
KP is growing up so fast!! I love that her school does this, I remember the kids with summer birthdays feeling very left out when I was in grade school. I love that she was pre-testing donuts by eating donut holes on the way to school. It's all about quality control! ;-) I've never seen Ginger plants before, the flowers are amazing! While vultures aren't God's most handsome creations, they serve a purpose as do all living things. I am glad the meat of this poor little deer will sustain more life. That's the natural cycle of things!
Ah summer birthdays, I can relate. Always was bummed as a kid when my birthday fell in the summer time. I hope your daughter had the best birthday ever! I am glad the schools got creative with celebrations for kids who have summer birthdays!
