The Puffer Fish

One of the most fun projects kids get to do are dioramas.Ty's class was given choices of sea creatures and he landed with the exotic Puffer Fish. This presented us with some great ideas for creating its habitat in a shoe box.

Ty completed the project last night and poses above with the finished diorama, which turned out great. However, Dad was trying to make sure that the Puffer Fish suspended in the background stayed put by adding some superglue to the backside. Well that turned out to have not been a great idea as the glue rolled off the sides and caused my finger to adhere to the foam ball. After it dried, a piece of the fish remained super-glued to Dad's finger much to Ty's amusement. He took the picture below.

Awards MC

Monday morning the parents of the 2nd grade gathered again in the cafeteria for the semester awards ceremony. Recently, they have given select students the opportunity to stand up on stage to read the names of the award winners. This time around Ty had the opportunity to do that, which he did with great poise and diction. He also took home two awards himself: one for leadership and one for perfect attendance.
