Luke Moran was chosen to take Elmer home next, this time for the Bank Holiday weekend! Their adventure was nothing short of jam-packed, involving everything from swimming lessons, to playdates with Harry Kavanagh, to dinner out in Little Ceasars, to a trip to town on the Luas, to meeting St. Patrick himself (!) and finally, coolest of all…alpaca trekking! We were all green with envy when we heard about this part of Luke and Elmer’s weekend, as it sounded SO COOL! We reckoned Elmer definitely enjoyed being read a different ‘Elmer’ story each night, as well as meeting his ‘twin’!! We laughed a lot at the idea of an elephant having good ‘table manners’! We were also very grateful to Luke for saving Elmer from the jaws of Poppy!! Another lucky escape! Thank you and well done for giving Elmer such a marvellous, exciting weekend Luke! I think lots of us want to go alpaca trekking now! Bualadh bos duit!
Next up, it was Anna’s turn to mind Elmer!
Anna and Elmer’s fun-filled weekend started with a movie, (one which we reckoned Elmer was familiar with) the BFG! Aren’t Friday nights perfect for movies? We think so! Elmer had a chance to see Finn and Simon here too! Next, we were definitely not surprised to hear that Elmer was taken to visit Anna’s beloved ponies-Yankee and Piper! We have heard so much about these two special horses from their owner, Miss Lester! Elmer had the chance to ride one, and we reckoned he was very brave to do so! The rest of Anna and Elmer’s weekend involved a bounce-tastic trip to Jumpzone, a birthday party, and some lovely bedtime stories! What a super few days! What an adventure! Well done Anna and thank you for giving Elmer such great experiences! Bualadh bos duit!!
After saying a fond farewell to Beast, we chose class mascot Elmer, as the next teddy we would send on adventures! First up, it was Darragh’s turn, and what a weekend they had together! They did everything from playing football (turning Elmer into an Aston Villa fan!), to Gaelic training, to drinking hot chocolate and eating pizza, watching Spongebob, meeting family and experiencing SNOW for the first time! Luckily for us, Darragh rescued Elmer from the jaws of his baby cousin…phew!! Thank you for giving Elmer such a brilliant first adventure Darragh, and thanks for keeping him warm during the snow too! Bualadh bos mór duit!
Paul from Ballyboden GAA Club is visiting us each Thursday for next four weeks, to teach us hurling skills! We definitely have a few naturals in Room 11! Don’t forget to wear tracksuits on Thursdays, and also that buying a hurley and sliotar is a great investment!
