I feel like I'm in school all over again...

I'm STILL a procrastinator!!!

Two weeks ago, when school started back after Christmas break, Chandler came home with a letter from her teacher. In this letter it informed us (the parents) that Chandler (really meaning me and Brandon... really meaning me) needed to create a project for the 100th day of school. The project is due on January 21st.....

that's tomorrow in case you were wondering.

They gave a few ideas and suggestions about different projects... I had a few ideas at the time that I first read the letter...

that was two weeks ago.

Well, this evening after dinner, I noticed Chandler's school folder laying on the counter and I picked it up to sign it (we have to sign off on her behavior report each day). Inside the folder there was a note... a note that I did not look at last Thursday because I knew she wouldn't be going back to school until Tuesday because school was canceled last Friday. A note that I did not look at on Monday night because school was canceled again today.

Uh Oh!!

So, I did the only thing I knew to do...

raid my scrapbook supplies!!!

Fortunately I had plenty of smiley face stickers that I bought for my Cherub Choir kids... sorry Cherubs! I'll have to buy more! :)

Chandler recently learned to count by 10s so we used this project as an opportunity to practice.


100 Smiley Stickers by Chandler Miles

I'm sure there will be better projects turned in... and there will probably be some kids who had parents who completely forgot about the project.

We'll do better next time!

Counting by 10's WAY TO GO CHANDLER!

I'll be the parent that forgot.

You'd be amazed at some of the things I saw on the 100th day of school when I taught. One girl brought 100 pennies in a Jack Daniels bottle. Another student brought 100 candies hot-glued to poster board and was later caught picking the candies off and eating them. Is Zero the Hero going to visit Chandler's school today?
