Emma's class is working on the letter "S" so they had planned a Silly Sock Day today. They were to all wear silly socks and then they were going to have a silly sock parade!
Emma and her silly socks!
Today was Gage's big day at Apple Valley School. For the past few weeks they have been studying a unit about Pioneers. They have had many things going on at school to prepare for the big day today. The entire 2nd grade class graduated from Apple Valley School today! They have had several projects that they have been doing, and one of them was to interview someone from the "olden days". Gage decided he wanted to call Grandpa Alan to do his interview. Grandpa isn't that old, but we have no living great grandpas or grandmas to interview. He asked Grandpa a bunch of questions and then got to ask one of his own questions. He wanted to know if they had a paddle. Grandpa said they had a switch and then Gage wanted to know if he had ever been beaten with it. Grandpa assured him that he hadn't been hit with the switch, but he had been bonked over the head with a clipboard!! :-) That must be where the bump (it's actually a mole) on the top of his head came from?
Another project that Gage was supposed to do was to make a veggie person to enter into the County Fair. Gage made his veggie dude pretty much all on his own, except for supergluing the almonds on the potato head for hair. We could have had a huge mess if we had turned Gage loose with super glue!
