beary prepared


That's Meg's schoolbag.

That's Meg's name tag.

That's Meg's yellow ribbon to show the area she lives in (and should hopefully return to each evening.)

And that's Meg's bear bell.

It arrived yesterday. It's very helpfully labelled for those literate but unaware of the bear bell system bears you come across occasionally.

And the timing? The only thing I can think of is that they somehow organised an amnesty on 1st graders for the first three weeks. Give them a head start if you will?

I was a bit worried that the idea of needing to carry a bear bell would freak poor Meg out but no.

She's thrilled.

It makes such a wonderfully loud clangy jangle as she runs down the road each morning...

The girl who lives up the street is our 7:30 alarm. Every school day, without fail, she walks by at 7:30 and we (still sleeping) hear her bear bell jingle. The only reason I know saturday from wednesday is that on Saturday there is no bear bell at 78:30 exact.

bastish- I can definitely see it functioning as an alarm- and that's when they're not playing with their security buzzers...

jo- lucky, too huh? I'm sure yours would need to be hand made from correct weight metal, too? ;P

Wow. A bear bell? That's definitely a first for me! Do they do bear attack drills? Has anyone ever needed to use their bell (for more than entertainment)?

Like, for real bears?!
