Over at A Scrappin' Friendsy, the Design Team has to come up with challenges for each week or as we call them 'Design Team Dares'. This week was MY week to post a challenge & I had the perfect idea.......I stole it from Chris' first English assignment. He had to write a paper containing 15 sentences about himself & all the sentences had to start with 'I'm NOT...' I thought that would be a fun journal prompt for a scrapbook page. I modified it a bit & asked for just 10 sentences..........so how 'bout it......y'all give it a try! If you leave comments, leave me with a list of 10 sentences describing yourself beginning with the words 'I'm NOT'. Here's my list.....
~a city girl
~a good singer
~a leader-I do better working behind-the-scenes
~a big sports fan-unless it's watching my boys play Little League
~Fancy/high-maintainence-LL Bean is more my style
~a Starbuck's coffee kind of person-give me my good ole Maxwell House Master Blend
~a 'Green Thumb'-plants don't like living at my house
~a winter/cold person-I'd rather be sitting outside enjoying the warm spring sunshine!
Michael cracked me up this morning when he came downstairs....grabs him a pop tart & heads in the living room to turn the TV on. Not to cartoons like you might imagine, but to channel 606.....to watch hunting shows! Speaking of hunting & trapping....Clay & Jon started in on their trapping adventures yesterday. Jon is SO serious about wanting to trap, so Clay is using this an opportunity for teaching some 'Business math'. He is in on ALL the buying/expenses, etc. this time. And he has a goal.....what he's 'shooting for' (I made a Punny...Ha!) is to make enough money trapping this year to buy himself a rifle to have for hunting season next Fall. I just think that is so cool that he has a purpose & a plan in what he wants to do!! You go, Jon! We had a good day of school yesterday. I sent Ashley & Jon off to read on their own some of the stuff I had printed off for the sled dog unit & to finish writing definitions for the vocab words. While they were doing that, Michael & Alli worked on their 'lap books' down here. Above is a picture I snapped of what Alli has done so far with hers. We have vocab words written on the little green thingies, the purple pocket has a little summary that they wrote about the story of Balto, the little red booklet in the top corner tells of the first uses of sled dogs....for work & transportation & to the left of the book pocket is a little flap-thingie that tells the first two breeds of sled dogs...Malamute & Siberian Husky. We are really having a good time with this unit so far & will end it up later this week by watching Balto & Snow Dogs. we continued our learning last night by playing two games of 'Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader'. I tell ya.....some of those questions are tough! We had a great time playing though & can't wait to play again. I'll just end by saying........................
'I'M NOT.........smarter than a fifth grader!!' Ha!Ha! ;-)
