The school projects have begun.

Let me break out into a sweat now.

R2 came home with a note Friday and a cut out sheet instructing us of a "family" project due on Monday.

I use family loosely because all of you know that any time the word project comes homes in a note from school, it's usually the mamas that complete the project.

I will break out all of my scrapbook stuff and make sure the glue gun is working and make sure I have extra sticks on hand.

Anyway, R2's project was to disguise a turkey so that he will not be eaten for Thanksgiving.

I asked R2 how he wanted to disguise his turkey, thinking he would want to go for the camo look and I would have to discourage this because everyone else would be doing camo look.

But instead to my amazement he said he wanted to do his like a zebra. I know, I have the greatest son ever!!! I had zebra print felt left over from last year when R1 had free enterprise day. You can read about and see his project here.

I made the necessary trip to Hobby Lobby to ensure we had all of our supplies. I have a great fear of running out of zebra print felt, feathers, and google eyes.

I came home, traced and cut out the zebra print turkey. Then I asked R2 if he wanted to help me glue the felt down. He did for all of about 2.7 seconds. He thought playing karate with his brother was more exciting.

So I trudged on alone. As I assembled the turkey, I would ask R2's opinion and he would stop karate chopping on his brother long enough to look over and say sure.

And here is Mr. Turkey, do you see him? Do you????

Gobble, gobble, gobble.

Turkey??? What Turkey???

One year when Seth had to do a Science project we all(the mother's) worked their fingers to the bone....then they had the assembly to announce the winners! Seth (I) won second place! The mother's were just giving each other high fives and chest bumps! Those were the days....
