Friday was Liam’s last day of school before the fall break. Recently in school the theme has been all things related to autumn — leaves, chesnuts, hedgehogs, pumpkins, etc. And of course Halloween-type things too. So on Friday he brought home the “big project” the kids must’ve been working on for some time. Parents, you really ought to take pictures of your kids’ projects the second they come in the door. Because they’re just not going to last until you get around to it.
This is what remains of Liam’s project. As you can see, it was a flowerpot painted to look like a jack-o-lantern, filled with sand and roasted chesnuts, with a ghost cutout poked into it. Liam did the cotton-gluing himself. Unfortunately, this morning “someone” accidentally tipped this over onto our stone floors. I’m surprised this much survived.
I find it hilarious that tucked in the bottom of the flowerpot is a Jupiler beer mat! Maybe that’s why Liam’s been coming home from school so happy!
