What's on your fall bucket list?

Posted by   + Show Post

 I'm making an autumn bucket list for our classroom wall.  The kids are having a blast coming up with things to put on it.  Here's a pretty print out for your own:

 Those are awesome!!  Do you actually "catch leaves?"  We did that for our gym class one day last year.  It is a lot harder than I thought it would be and we were all very sweaty and tired when we were done.

We are covering vikings in history and we talked about finding viking runes all over the northern east coast.  The boys got a kick out of the whole Columbus debate.  :-)

Yeah, we still need to split our wood and weatherize the vehicles too.  Blah!  It's sad when adulthood needs to sneak into your bucket list!  LOL

 When mine does that, it's time to ditch my browsing history and reboot my computer.

 Mmmmm...Chili!

We decorated a few pumkins a couple years ago instead of carving them.  We wrapped one with strips of cheesecloth to make a mummy.  You can really get creative!

For me it usually means something (typically java, windows or my browser) is in the middle of updating.
