100th Day Of School

Today is Gavin's 100th day of school. He has been talking about this day for about 2 weeks now.


Because for some reason he thinks its the last day of school.

"Mom, do you know Monday is the 100th day of school?"

yes Gavin I do.

"I'm happy I don't have to go anymore because its the last day of school too."

Ummm? What????

He gets angry with me when I try to tell him that its not the last day of school, only the 100th. For some reason he thinks his teacher told him there was no more school after today.

Even last night when I put him to bed he asked me if Monday was the last day of school. Nope. Sorry!

Maybe I should have written a note to the teacher asking her to tell Gavin that yes, he should return on Tuesday.

Anyway- his class is celebrating the day by doing a couple of fun #100 games and projects throughout the day. Ending with a special snack. A note was sent home last week asking parents to send in 100 pieces of a small food item ( M&M's, peanuts, crackers, raisins ) that will be mixed together and then given out.

I waited until the night before it was due last week to remember to get it together. The only thing we had in the house that I could use was an almost empty box of Cheez-Its. I was praying the whole time that we had 100 left. After I was done painstakingly counting out 100 crackers I put them in a Ziploc bag and left them on the counter.

I then made the mistake of leaving the kitchen to use the bathroom.

When I returned the bag was gone. I of course go running into the back room to see which kid was eating the Cheez-Its.

I find Katelyn with the bag, but is she eating them? Oh no. She is banging the bag on the ground and smashing up the precious crackers that Gavin needs for school.

I grab the bag and hurry back into the kitchen to see the damage. About 20 of the crackers were smashed up and needed to be replaced. We had 5 leftover Cheez-Its to spare. Thank goodness. I guess that teaches me not to leave important stuff on the counter!!

I'm sorry to say that that post made me laugh, as frustrating as it was. So typical for the sibling to eat a school project. I think Noah's hundreds day party is going to coincide with his valentines party next week. I haven't heard if we have to bring in 100 of anything this year like we did last year.

My kids have done that at their school too. That is funny that he thinks it's the last day of school too. I hope he's not to dissapointed when he finds out that it isn't!

Aww! Too bad it's not the last day of school, huh? :) And yeah..I'm learning not to leave important stuff on the counter either now that my son is getting tall enough to reach up there!

aww poor boy. That would have been disappointing thinking school would be over on the hundredth day. I have had similar experiences with cracker boxes lol

That is so cute!

Tomorrow (Tuesday) is 100th day of school for my kids. My son doesn't really care (he's in 5th) but my daughters are in 1st and think its the coolest thing in the world.

They are also doing the 100 thing with snacks. I think this is the part they are looking forward to the most.

100 almonds and 100 raisins.

Unfortantly, he probably only has about 15,000 more days to go!!!!!!
