Yesterday was the 100th day of school, so the first-graders celebrated with all kinds of 100-themed activities. They had to bring in 100 of some kind of snack (WCK took Goldfish crackers), and stick 100 items to a piece of posterboard. (WCK did stickers). It’s hard to believe that I’ve taken WCK to first grade 100 times now, especially since she still seems genuinely shocked every morning when I say she needs to put on shoes.
Anyway, as part of the 100th-day celebration, the kids had to draw pictures of what they imagine they’ll look like when they’re 100 years old. WCK has wanted to be a paleontologist ever since we took her to Dinosaur Park in South Dakota when she was two, so here she is at age 100, still digging bones:
Wow, she looks good!
I guess from this we can assume one of three things:
1) there will be some amazing medical advances in the next 94 years2) WCK plans to become a vampire3) WCK is going to forget to save money for retirement.
I guess it could be both #2 and #3. Even vampires need to be practical.
