two things

Today is the one hundredth day of school. Each student in Cal's prekindergarten class is to bring in one hundred of something; he chose sea glass. Abbott did the same project when he was in kindergarten. He learned of the assignment right before we went to Mexico for midwinter break, and insisted on collecting and bringing back one hundred Mexican rocks (I hope I haven't violated some customs law - if so, please don't turn me in). The sea glass will be much easier to transport than the rocks were; grateful for Cal's choice.

The pair below made an impressive amount of noise last night. I have no idea what they were so upset about, but it was fun seeing them together right above our house.

Happy Tuesday!

That's a show and tell photo for school. At least I think so anyway.
BTW - when we were watching the Olympic Hockey games, I thought of your family being there the week before. How exciting!!

My daughter's class has't mentioned the 100 days yet...although they did do a joint project about counting to 100's by 2s, 5s and 10s.

My parents will be Soooo jealous taht you are so close to the eagles! They have to travel to a town an hour away to see them.

Love the Bald Eagles, extraordinary!
Do you ever get caught up in the moment just to look and miss the shot?

I thinks your son's idea of 100 pieces of sea glass will prove to be a hit with his teacher and fellow students.

Happy Shooting!!
