Owl of the Week
My Daughter bought this owl, decided she didn't want it anymore and gave it to me! I was having my students help me name it - something to do with books.  They came up with Bob, Fred (nothing to do with books! Paige and one of the owls from Harry Potter) I settled on Scout from To Kill a Mocking Bird
