Where IS Everyone Today?

It sure has been quiet today! Did my new banner throw you off? Or did you not like my little sneak peek earlier?? lol (just kidding).

Anyway, now for a FUNNY!!
My daughters, age 8 and 10 are bound to be well-rounded at the rate they're going. They've been involved in dance (tap, ballet, clogging), have had piano and guitar lessons, and are now in a 4-H club called S.E.T. (Science, Engineering, and Technology) where they learn how to build robots, windmills, and space shuttles (Who wouldda knew? My girly girls! lol. But secretly, I think it's more of a social thing they go to with their friends!)

Anyway, today they made little shuttles out of plastic bottles. This is the diagram that my 8 year old drew:

(WAIT...it gets better!)...

Are you familiar with the saying at the bottom?? So, my 10 year old says, "Maddy, you need to write at the top, "FIG NEWTON'S LAW!"



ROTFL!!!! ☺ She actually thought it was "Fig Newton's" law. OK, maybe you just HAD to be there. My husband and I cracked up laughing!! Aren't kids the greatest?!!

And just so you know... I haven't boughten fig newtons in years!! That's just what she associated it with ☺

Awesome new banner -- I need some blog banner lessons!

What smart girls you have; I'm all for women in the sciences. And I'm betting a lot of adults think it's Fig Newton's Laws, if they even make that much of a connection!

OH my goodness, that IS funny! They say the cutest things! :)

I totally LOVE your blog, and I think I should pay you to fancy up my boring blog or maybe the DT blog needs to look a little more creative like yours. It looks so 3D like we could reach right in and touch it! I love the banner and the layout with the links at the top, but I still can't figure out how to do it. *shrug* Kel

That's hilarious. I once took my boss's granddaughter with me to pick up some lunch. She had been learning how to spell in school and her teacher had written the words of things and taped to the item. Like she spelled DESK and taped it to her desk. She spelled DOOR and taped it to the door. Well, she comes running over to me while I'm in line and says "I know how to spell trashcan!" I said "You do?" and she said "P U S H" LOL!
