Molly had a 100th day homework page last night that asked, among other things, whether she's 100 inches tall and if not, how tall is she? This led us to discover that, according to the marks on the wall, she's grown 3 inches since the last time we measured! I'm not sure when that was, but we haven't lived here even a year. Wow!
|Ta-dah!! So many school projects sent home this month.|

It almost makes up for all the "Down Down Baby" and "Don't drink whiskey, I know karate, I'll punch you in the body" rhymes she has picked up on that bus. For a month or two her bus friends in the afternoon (when the big, bad 1st and 2nd graders are in the mix) have been trading. It's really amazing how they've developed a mini economy around things like fishtail bracelets, bits of dollhouse furniture, balloons and plastic jewelry. I really wish they would give out a list of the kids on the bus with contact info the way they do for her classroom. I'd really like to be in touch with other parents about these sorts of things.
Love this Valentine's Day card...
