Our family hosted a Christmas party yesterday for our daughter, two sons, our two future daughter-in-laws and the daughter-in-law's families. My son the physics teacher and his fiance gave our daughter (who will student teach math next semester) a smorgasbord of teaching supplies. Each had a note taped to it. I share one of the notes:
Paperclips, binder clips, thumb tacks...allvery useful things that you probably know exactly what they could be used for...here are 10 other uses for paper clips...
10. A book mark
9. Unclog glue
8. Rocket Engine Mount (ok, that's for physics teachers only)
7. Lottery Ticket scratcher
6. Pick desk drawer locks...(seriously, it works sometimes)
5. Stress Reliever (just bend away into any old shape!)
4. Guitar Pick
3. Chip clip
2. Christmas Ornament Holder
1. Make-your-own TV antenna!!! (well, until Feb 17th at least)
Other good things from the party:
Mark got a 10 x 10 U of Illinois tailgating gazebo and a propane crock pot (think chili). You might look him up if you're in Champaign-Urbana on a football gameday next fall.
We played a reindeer game:
Here are the reindeers created by the three teams. My son Jason on the right, his fiance Laurie on the left and Mark's future m-i-l in the center.
