Third Grade Project

Every mom, who has a child in third grade or just elementary in general, knows that when her child is assigned a project she is also assigned to that very same project. I'm such a horrible procrastinator. That is one of my biggest flaws. I know this about myself. We started on the project, which was to be a box/mock float decorated with Georgia facts, two days before it was due. Yes! I know how horrible that is. We pulled it off, however, and I'm breathing easy until the next project assignment.








When I picked Lindsey up, she couldn't stop telling us about how proud she was of her box. Her teacher loved it, and shared it with other classes in the school. I am not exactly excited when my kids have projects because creativity isn't something that just runs freely through my mind, but I have so much fun working with my kids on things like this. I am always amazed at my children's ability to have such extraordinary imaginations, and the creative capacity to do anything. I don't know who learns from whom more. Me or them. >:0)

Relishing in His goodness...

Oh, man... procrastination is one thing I really hope the kids don't inherit from me. However, they already seem to be chronically late like I am, so I think I'm justly worried.

The project looks great. You ladies did a fantastic job!

She looks so proud of her project! Since you know how I share your pain onthis very issue. I'll leave you a big hug and know we got through it with happy children and really that's what matters!
