Endless Entertainment

Another one of my girls has made some serious knitting progress. She brought her project to me and asked me if I could end it for her. You know . . . “make it done.” I showed her how I was binding it off, pulling on the yarn when I finished to show her it was “done” and it wouldn’t unravel.

“Cool!” she said. “Can I take it home today?”
“Of course you can,” I told her.
“Great!” she said with excitement. “I’m going to use it as a . . .

. . . bookmark!”

“What kind of book will you use it for?” I asked while digging my fingernails into my palms to stop me from laughing.”

“Just a normal book. I’ll probably have to fold it.”

And now we move on to the dress designing talents of the former Bikini Girls.

During an indoor recess, two of the designers decided to have a contest. They each created a dress for a 16-year-old princess, complete with accessories. They worked on opposite sides of a white board so they couldn’t see each other’s designs, and their outfits would be judged by a third, impartial designer.

Here’s Design A:

Notice the beaded embellishments. Notice the ring. Notice the earrings. Notice the bag.

And don’t miss the tiara.

Now let’s take a look at Design B:

Notice we have a strapless dress with floral embellishments.
Notice the necklace. Notice the earrings.

And please, please don’t miss the pockabook.

The judge chose Design B. I’m happy that I didn’t have to judge, because it would have been impossible to choose.

I’ll leave you with this . . .

I spotted this in a friend’s classroom. While she was tutoring a 3rd grade boy, the boy’s 1st grade sister wrote on the white board. As most kids do, she played teacher, writing a version of the morning message her teacher writes to the class each morning.

A FLIED TRIP! We love flied trips.

    I wanna go on a flied trip! What age do you suggest giving children pointy sticks and expecting them to sit still? I have a four-year-old that I’d like to teach, but I’m afraid she or one of her little friends will end up with an eye patch…
