100th Day

Yesterday the Grade 1 class celebrated the 100th day of school. On this day they do various activities about the number 100. This day is also an open house day and they try to get 100 visitors to come to the class. Well they managed to 130 visitors this year.

Matthew and I went to visit during the morning. We took along Aunt Aileen, Taryn and Aiden, who had also brought with them Hannah and Lydia. This was a pleasant surprise for Rebecca for she had not expected these visitors. We enjoyed a piece of cake, a couple stories and spent some time helping the kids make their 100 day necklace out of fruitloops and licorice. The classroom was full of parents, siblings, aunts, grandparents ... it was a busy place. Later on Joycee and Ryan came to visit Rebecca and at the end of the day Rob stopped in for surprise visit.

Matthew sat with Rebecca after recess for a few minutes. This didn't last long and he got the wiggles, plus Rebecca had to do some cleanup. While Rebecca was cleaning up Matthew tried on her (incomplete) 100 Day Crown. It's suppose to have 100 stickers and a 100 Day "sign" on it ... Rebecca was a little behind and didn't get it done.

Hannah sat beside Rebecca for a bit and they both made 100 Day necklaces. They had to put 100 fruit loops on the necklace in groups of 10, with pieces of licorice dividing the groups.

Just to forwarn you Aileen ... Marietta is already asking if you can come to see her Sarah, Plain and Tall play. It's on March 3 @ 11am ... come one, come all ;)

Looks like it was a lot of fun! I'm looking forward to this sort of thing in a few years:)

All the best at your play, Marietta!
