The greatest show on earth

We are headed to the circus on Saturday!  In true homeschool form, I ordered a few books about it to prepare the kids.  They have very little base of knowledge on this. 

We got this beautiful book:
And PK2's favorite:
And did you know that even Mr Roger's went to the circus:
I have to admit, I am not crazy about the circus.  It combines my least favorite things..clowns, weirdos and animal smells.  Plus I get to drop fifty bucks plus incidentals for the privilege of smelling the elephant droppings.  But who am I to deprive my kids of this classic childhood experience?

When I was really young I "puked" at the circus( I think I was sick)I have never been able to go to the circus since!

Maybe I need to suck it up for my boys!! Can't wait to hear how it went:)
