100th post

It is hard to believe I have managed to babble away for 100 posts - and even harder to believe that anyone has been reading! I started blogging as a way to keep a sort of journal - the journal I have always been too lazy to consistently keep. I didn't expect to find so many other blogs I enjoy visiting and keeping up with - what a fun bonus!

O.K. So for the puppy update...another great night in the crate and a not-so-good day in the house. I must have cleaned up a half dozen puddles today...sigh. Two steps forward, one step back. The bright side is that I think I am going to be able to find a nice place for Elmer to go while we are gone over Christmas. There are a couple of potential doggy daycare options here and my mom and John have generously agreed to keep him if he gets along with their dog. So I am feeling better about not having to leave him in a little box all day and night for two weeks.

We had another Knowledge Bowl practice this week. I am expecting an utter disaster next week as I have been pretty ineffective at coaching the kids. it is pretty hard to get 5 year olds to understand and/or care about rules like time limits and a designated question answerer. Ah least it should be amusing.

It feels like an ice cream night - I think I am going to have to head to Sonic for a little fix.

As a parent veteran of numerous knowledge bowl and academic team type contests over the years but all at the middle and high school levels, I find the thought of kindergarten knowledge bowl quite intriguing. Just how does it work? Is it an actual competition? With another class? For fun? Based on what they're learning? Inquiring minds want to know. :-)

It's always amazing that 100 posts seems to come so fast!
Sonic for ice cream, that should make for a great night!

They are put in teams and then do the standard 30 seconds to answer, 15 seconds to answer if the first team misses it. The questions are along the lines of what colors combines make what color, who was the first president of the United States, how many days in a week, hours in a day, minutes in an hour, and questions about characters from kids books and movies. Some of the questions seem way hard and some are pretty easy. The actual competition is next week and to be honest, I have no idea if they will just compete against each other or other schools. I'll let you know!

Congrats on your 100th post!

Is it easier or more frustrating to clean up after puppy accidents or kid accidents? I can't decide. I am soooo looking forward to my seven-year-old having a "good night in the crate." I am tired of washing his sheets every day. (Even tho' he wears pull-ups to bed...Soaks right through 'em.)

Here's to dry spells! LOL

DNA Energy Drink? is a proprietary blend of quality ingredients in four flavors: Citrus, Lemon Lime, Sugar Free Citrus and CranRazberryMeanwhile, War Memorial Stadium was in severe need of replacement, being in poor condition and too small to meet the NFL's post-1969 requirement that all stadiums seat at least 50,000 But the 49ers think Willis can become more dynamic, a scary thought for opposing defenses Well such tales are often true While it is still a tiny amount of games thinking about the full schedule, the NFL has allowed broadcasters like NBC show their games online
