The 100th day of school!

Last week, we celebrated our 100th day of school! We don't actually have to record our homeschool days this year since Wubs is not seven years old yet, but I thought it would be good practice for next year. The girls have colored one square on their hundred charts since we started the school year, back in August. (Honestly, I think we may have technically passed our '100th day of school' a week or so back because we didn't color the hundred charts on the days we had a field trips, went to the library, etc, but the girls didn't seem to mind. wink.) In celebration of our big day, we had a treasure hunt! Bella was the first child to wake up on the 100th day of school, but she quickly climbed up the ladder of the bunk bed to wake her sister. Here are a few pictures from the big day! Glasses on! Time to read the treasure map. It was supposed to take the girls one hundred steps to reach their treasure, but in all the excitement, I don't think anyone was really counting! wink!First stop was out the front door and onto the front porch! However, it had rained really hard the night before so I had to go to Plan B when designing the treasure map. I had wanted the hunt to be held outside but it was just too wet. Maybe next year!Scrambling in and out of rooms...This picture of Bella is too funny! She was really on the look out!Finally the girls looked in daddy and mommy's bedroom! I hid the treasure behind our bedroom door, where our hamper usually sits. I had removed the hamper and filled the spot with 100 pieces of TREASURE! Hooray!Treasure, treasure, treasure! Cotton candy, grow capsules filled with animal shapes, candy, glow sticks, chocolate coins, dinosaurs, and fun eraser toys! (The erasers have been an item the girls have been begging to get every time we go to Target. I have no idea why, but they think they are so cool! ha ha! So you can only imagine their delight...)The girls sat and sat in this corner of our bedroom, just enjoying all the loot! The girls enjoyed playing all morning long with their new toys. Then we had a special lunch! I told Wubs and Bella that I was making them 100 nuggets, and they gasped. They thought that would be waaaay too many; we all laughed when they saw their plates! It was a happy, happy day!
"Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you."- Psalm 9:10


  1. So fun from start to finish! LOVE the nuggets!

  2. Awesome! I wished I could have been on the treasure hunt! I'm totally doing this next year. I really liked the nuggest in the shape of 100!
