Yesterday, Maggie had her 100th day of school for this school year, something the kids are all aware of since they have been counting the days at the beginning of class each day. For a homework assignment, the kids were asked to count out 100 of something at home and bring it to class that day. The assignment had suggested raisins or Cheerios, but I had a better idea. I dusted off my old collection of Mardi Gras beads and we set out to see if I had at least 100 of them.
Sure enough I did, all unique. Six years of living in New Orleans will provide that for you. Maggie counted them out, creating 10 rows of 10 strands each. We had fun looking at all of the beads as well as my collection of Mardi Gras coins.
