Actually, it seems more like a million when your first born is gone all day. But, the certificate is true: she really is 100 days smarter.
It has been amazing to watch her grow socially and intellectually. I am so proud of her!
The class was asked to bring in 100 of something. After making a short list of ideas we decided on 100 beads. She and I counted them out yesterday afternoon and made the lovely necklace that she wore to school today.
Mommy also got to help Gracie and her class celebrate. I got a chance to volunteer for the early morning hour once again. I helped the kids make a 100th day of school snack. They counted by 10's and added 10 of 10 things. We had Cherrios, Goldfish crackers, M&M's, raisins, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, marshmallows, CoCo Puffs cereal, peanuts, & pretzel sticks.
I chuckled to myself as the same responses were in each group "I'm hungry!" "Can we have some now?!" "I don't like (fill in the blank)!"
All but one group finished up before time was up, and then Ms. Orndorff gave me a book to read to them: The Night Before The 100th Day Of School. It was an adorable book and I loved reading it to all of those eager faces. They are still at the age where they listen intently to a story.
Gracie bounced off the bus this afternoon and apparently had a great rest of the day after I left. Of course, her birthday is tomorrow, so she is having a pretty good week so far!
Happy 100 Days Of School Gracie!
We Are So Proud Of You!!
