Dioramas Are Complete
A. and M. finished up their Ocean Dioramas last Thursday night. I immediately got the camera out to take pictures. They are pretty proud of them:

They both really worked hard--and I put in a little time myself helping them get all the stuff together, and supplying an idea or two. I was never so glad to see a project finished, but we are pleased with the end results.

Yesterday, on the way home from school, M. announced that she had made a 100 on her diorama. I looked at A. through the rear view mirror, and he looked so sad. He said, "I got a 72." I immediately slammed on my brakes, and very indignantly said "What?" That's crazy!" Oh, how the kids laughed. He got a 100 too--he just thought it would be funny to make me sweat a little! The brat.

The dioramas look great. I'm one of "those" moms that dreads when my kids have projects like dioramas to complete. That is SO not my cup of tea! You guys did great!

Awesome job! Those are some of my favorite things to make--but you can only make so many before you run out of room!

They deserved 100s!

They did great with them!

That is SO something my kids would have done, and STILL do....Don says it's because they want my reaction. And I would have had the exact same reaction as you!

They both look really good, and they deserved a 100. Great job, and I had to laugh at A. He's beginning to be a real prankster. Wonder where he gets that from?
