We had our 100th day of school last week. Some of these traditions I have been doing for 11 or 12 years now, and it is hard to be motivated to making a day special. But I know my little ones love it, just like my big kids did. We liked having a different type of school day. We did lots of counting, stamped 100 things, and our traditional 100 piece puzzle. We read our 100th day books too.
But we did do some new things. Several years ago, Mallory made a car out of the black 100 number (cut from construction paper). We did it again this year, and Mallory used the 1-0-0 to make a face, and Bethany made an alien. I think she named him too. Another thing we did was putting the girls' faces on the $100 bill. They both wrote how they would spend $100. Bethany said she would get a talking Star Wars clone, and Mallory said she would get a really big lego set and more tsum-tsums. These are little stuffed characters that they really like lately. It was a fun day, and I'm glad we did it!
Bethany's face on the $100 bill. It was not double-sided though! I couldn't find Mallory's to take a photo of it, but we did make her one!
Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
