The whole family that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet earth.
As the end of second grade approaches, Jimmy has a lot of tests, and the last thing he needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration.

On August 14, 1781, George Washington received news that Admiral de Grasse and his fleet were on their way to the Chesapeake rather than New York. Three days later, the first American forces were on their way to Virginia. By August 21, few if any allied forces were left around White Plains. This lecture by Dr. Robert Selig will look at the logistics of coordinating the movements of more than 7,500 men and their thousands of animals over the Hudson River into Bergen County and across N.J. on three distinct parallel routes to Princeton and Trenton. Without any interference from Sir Henry Clinton in New York City. Selig is a historical consultant who is a specialist on the role of French forces under the comte de Rochambeau during the American Revolutionary War and serves as project historian to the National Park Service for the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail Project.
