The Wisdom of Jesse

Jesse came home from school one day last week and said excitedly: "Mom! I have the best homework ever!!" My first guess was "none?" But I was wrong. And he did have alot of fun doing this. He had to finish the sayings:

As you shall make your bed so shall you... eat breakfast and go to school.

Better be safe than... incinerated.

Strike while the... chance comes.

It's always darkest before... the sun comes up.

Never under estimate the power of... the Dark Side.

You can lead a horse to water but... he's scared.

Don't bite the hand that... plays in the mud.

No news is... two words.

You can't teach an old dog... new words.

If you lie down with the dogs... you'll get up with the dogs.

Love all, trust... the geek.

The pen is mightier than the... big brother that sits next to me.

An idle mind... is useless.

Where there's smoke..., there's a BBQ.

Happy the bride who... marries a nerd.

A penny saved is... a bigger collection.

Two's company, Three's... company, four's company, Five's.

Don't put off tomorrow... what you can put off today.

None are so blind as... a rocking horse.

Children should be seen and... not forgot.

If at first you don't succeed... pound your fist into the ground and cry.

You get out of something... what you forgot to take out.

When the blind leadeth the blind..., lead them.

What did he get as a grade on that? Did he find it fun or was he overwhelmed?

He had a ball! It was due on Monday, so he hasn't gotten it back yet to know what grade he got- I'll try to remember and post it. :-)
