100 Days of School

I don’t remember celebrating the 100th day of school back when I was in elementary school, do you?

The school the boys go to celebrates — they do lots of different activities relating to the number 100 — counting, reading books, writing down 100 words that they know, that sort of thing.  They each had to take a baggie with 100 snack pieces for one of the counting activities. (We sent Corn Chex, I didn’t have anything else fun to give them.  Must go grocery shopping…)

It’s kind of a fun thing to celebrate, except for one small problem.  100 days down means there are only 80 left to go.  I’m not sure it’s possible that we are just over the halfway mark on this school year already.   

Time really does speed up as you get older, doesn’t it?

Today, played with glue and paint and paper and buttons.  I think the paint is finally all off of my hands.  I went to the bank earlier and my hands had streaks of black gesso on them.

D is for

I haven’t done one of these in awhile — I meant to do it weekly, but I think I missed last week.  Or not.  I’m having trouble remembering.  I could probably go find out easily enough, but it would require moving my hands from the keyboard over to the mouse, and I’m not sure I have that much energy right at the moment.
