Continuing the topic from yesterday...
Every year in our district, the kindergarteners are assigned the task of creating a "100 Days" project to celebrate the countdown to the end of the school year.
When Eldest was in kindergarten, he wrote 100 different sports team names on posterboard. IN THEIR TEAM COLORS. (No lie. We call him Rainman for a reason.) I swear, it took him about 2 weeks. 2 excruciating weeks.
So this year, it was Middle's turn. At dinner one night, we tried to brainstorm different ideas for the project. My boring suggestions of 100 chocolate chips or 100 pennies were immediately written off.
Hubby joked, "How about a 100-piece puzzle?"
Middle: "Yeah, Mom, can't I just bring in a puzzle?"
(I wished that he could, actually. That's how much I despise these types of things.)
So we compromised. He put together a 100-piece puzzle all by himself and then we GLUED IT to the posterboard.
(I sorta feel like we cheated on this one, but whatever.)
Moving on to Valentine's Day...

So my children will be passing out these today:
