100th Post! A Must Read!

Today is Braden's official 100th day of Second Grade. I decided to wait until today to also publish my 100th post. I had huge expectations for this post. I've even laid awake at night thinking about what & how I would do it. Yes, I'm blog obsessed. So my original idea is only 2/3 complete. I have searched every picture file, every SD card, every email, and everyone else's email looking for a specific picture.! Aaargh, can't find it! So here is the 2/3! As I mentioned above, Braden celebrates the 100th day of school, the past two years he has had to decorate something at home and take it back to school.

This was Braden's kindergarten hat. We decorated it with 100 stars, Oklahoma (2007 was our great state's Centennial Birthday), and $100 in play money.

In 2008, this is the picture MIA. I had saved all of his spelling tests. We cut out 100 words from those test. Then we made a poster. It said "I Can Spell 100 Words"!

For 2009, my second grader is not doing an art project at school. I googled and found this Comparison Activity. I helped him think logically on this, because I am pretty sure my second grader believes he is Super Man!

I could carry 100 pieces of paper, but I couldn't carry 100 bricks! I could eat 100 M &M's, but I couldn't eat 100 pizza's! I could put 100 pencils in my desk, but I couldn't put 100 books in my desk!I wish I had 100 puzzles, but I am glad that I do not have 100 dogs!

I love, love, love blogging. Why? It gives me an opportunity to write down my thoughts, share the happenings of my family with others, and most of all gives me a chance to meet new friends. I don't think I have ever met anyone, that I can't talk to. I happened upon a site in December, yep I was blog surfing or stalking, whatever they call it. I left a comment and started following this blog: SimaGJewelry

In honor of my 100th post, The4-Crow's has team up with SimaGJewelry and will be giving away this custom made, handcrafted, cute, cute, cute necklace! Thank you SimaG!

Great contest ShaRhonda! I'm sorry it's taken me a little while to get entered. My favorite piece by SimaG was the family necklace. I thought it was quite beautiful. The reason I blog is to keep some sort of record on the going ons of my family since I don't journal. I hope to one day get it printed so I'll have a hard copy as well. I also like to keep my family in BA informed of what we're up to since they're not too close. I'm already one of your followers and enjoy it! I posted your contest on my blog so hopefully more then one person will respond. I posted on Carrie's blog and also on SimaG's blog. I hope that covers it! Oh yeah, my email address is

i love her "this is how a necklace is born" spiral pendant - how creative and beautiful!

Suanne said...

i actually don't blog - but I'd love to if I had the time. Its a fun way to tell people about yourself, talk about great finds, talk about techniques... And few people do them for origami, which is my specialty. Good luck with your blogging!
