Hannah was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society tonight, as were 170 other 7th and 8th graders at Bush Middle School. To my amazement (and gratitude), they finished in an hour. I'm considering this a dry run for Rachel's high school graduation in June, when I'll make sure every family member has at least one book or a DS Lite with fresh batteries in-hand for the duration. Her class has 650+ upcoming graduates. So maybe we'll also pack water bottles and snacks. And blankets. And jammies.

I kept getting stumped as well, but kept arriving at "blue whale," which - unlike the black & white killer whale (the ONLY whale that is black and white, by the way)......
I HATE to lose and am going back in my shell!

I sent a txt to Cha Cha as I learned from your OTHER blog and received this answer:
The riddle what does a whale, penguin, boot, train and piano all have in common? is from a picture, they were all black and white.

Are you saying you didn't like my answers??
Really. I asked another teacher. We think the (VERY POOR) answer is "none".
But, (I'll repeat) "Things taxed by Democrats" is an excellent guess. ;>

you need to give up on the object grouping, mom. if yo don't think about it, maybe it will just disappear.
because lets face it guys, she's losing sleep over it.

Pack something to read and a lunch. We had classes of 600+ for both Hailey and Tyler's classes and with Volluz for a last name only the Woodworths would go after them.

You've got it easy -- Britt's class had almost 1000 students!

These are a set of objects defined by the fact that they share a rare and perfect diversity. Each of them possesses a set of characteristics that overlaps with those of one, two, or three of the others, but never four.

PLEASE share the answer when you DO figure it out.
Congrats to Hannah!
And, for graduation: when you pack your bags, don't forget pots and spoons and other noise making equipment to embarrass Rachel with when it's her turn to go up for the diploma!
