Grilled cheese and boxing.

Last night John and I went over to a friends house for supper and some wii.
We had grilled cheese and tomato soup, and had a great time playing lots of fun wii games.
We played: Mario Cart (with 4 people)- I got the closest to winning, tennis, bowling, boxing, shooting (like duck hunt) and some other fun games.
Here are some pictures from boxing (It was a bit of a workout with the dodging and punching:)

John was tired out after beating me at boxing.

1st grade Art

As a computer teacher, I have trained my first graders to log in. When are logged in they can go to paint and draw. Sometimes they get a bit of time at the end to draw too. This week I was going through the folders, and I remembered how amusing it is to see how they spell things and wonder what they were thinking. The titles are exactly as they were written.

I know the art teacher has been teaching them something:


and my personal favorite... "to me it is art" are they feeling?




And...What were they thinking. I have no idea what some of these mean:)

"Hi, I'm a wierdo snowman"


"Mega Nova scares you"



Is this in some way supposed to resemble a coconut?


I hope if I am a mom someday my kid thinks I'm a cross between the sun and Joe Cool...who watches over flowers.?.


Is it a "she" machine in a clown car going over the high jump???

"blate ho lo"
I couldn't even tell you if this is appropriate, because I have no idea what is happening. What is in the microwave???

To be fair, we are working on a PowerPoint where they choose an unusual pet and do fun things with it. (An assignment based on the book "If I had a Dragon" by Amanda Ellery and Tom Ellery) Here are some GOOD pictures that will be placed in that PowerPoint.

If I had a monkey, we would "go to the moovies"

If I had a skunk, he could teach me how to "scare people"

If that isn't funny enough for is a forwarded e-mail I got from a co-worker that IS funny. Make sure you read the letter underneath

Dear Mrs. Jones,

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer. I work at Home Depot and I told Sarah how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had. Then I found one more in the back room, and several people were fighting over who would get it. Sarah╩╝s picture does NOT show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.

Sincerely, Mrs. Smith
