As we inch ever closer to the release of Fibonacci Zoo, this happened.
We were flocked by Young Life last night! Flocking is a fundraiser during which a 'flock' of flamingos (is that even the correct name for a group of flamingos? Hm....time to do a little research!) [Update - a group of flamingos is called, appropriately enough, a "stand".] is surreptitiously left on an unsuspecting family's front lawn, along with an envelope with information about what Young Life is all about, what they are raising money for (usually for sending kids to summer camp), and an invitation to pay (donate) to have the flamingos removed the following night. It's a fun, low-stress way to reach out to the local community, to educate folks about what Young Life stands for (I got my Young Life start in Kent, WA in 1984), and get the kids who will ultimately benefit from the funds raised out in their community.
But ... it seems they left the wrong number of flamingos (and, apparently, a small white dog that strangely resembles our dog Roxy).
What's the correct number? If they had visited Fibonacci Zoo first, they would know. But you don't have to visit the zoo. All you need to do is read the book to find out! Coming next month. #ArbordaleKids
