Hank the Horse Outing

Sam’s preschool class has a mascot named Hank, who is a little stuffed horse. Throughout the school year, each child gets to take Hank home for a week to have all sorts of adventures. At some point Hank is photographed with the child and a brief story of Hanks visit is written. This story and picture become a page in a class book about Hank.

Since Sam had a rocky start to preschool, his teacher decided that maybe a visit from Hank would make his adjustment go more smoothly.


Hank accompanied us to a variety of locations throughout the week. Here is the story that we wrote for Hank’s book:

  • Hank had a lot of exciting adventures while visiting Sam this week. He took numerous trips around the house in Sam’s Tonka trucks, played at the park, and attended a Little Gym class with Sam. Hank and Sam’s favorite activity together was a trip to Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. They shared a cake batter frozen yogurt topped with M&Ms and little cheese cake bites. Yummy!

And here are some of the photos that we took while at Menchie’s with Hank.

The hope was that Sam would be excited about returning to school on Monday so that he could share his story and picture with the class. I’d love to say that the plan worked but, ummm…not so much.

Oh well, Sam thoroughly enjoyed his week with Hank and got an unexpected bowl of frozen yogurt out of it, so it’s not all bad!
