C.J. At Age 100

C.J. recently celebrated his 100th day of first grade.  On that day, he had to fill in the blanks about what his life will be like when he is 100 years old.  He also had to draw a picture. 

When I Am 100, By C.J.

When I’m 100, it will be excellent! 

First, I will go to sleep.

Then, I will wear a sweater.

Finally, I will say I love my kids.

I think it will be excellent when I’m 100!

    when I was in second grade, I had an imaginary friend named betsy. Betsy was 100 years old, with red curly hair and a red dress. this picture reminds me of Betsy.

    I’ve read your most awesome book, and is now trying to keep up with this most awesome blog. And in the book you write how C.J, for the first year, refuses to even say the word “blue”. And here, he’s even drawn himself with blue pants! The way you allow us readers to be a part of your life is wonderful, and you, Lori, are my new hero!

    There is a company that make dolls and stuffed toys from kids’ drawings. Wouldn’t his drawing make and excellent doll? This is the website but I think they are booked up for a while – http://www.childsown.com/

    “First I will go to sleep” He clearly has his priorities in (the right) order!

    This is great! The kids also celebrated the 100th day of school, where I work as a janitor. One teacher had an app on her phone that “ages” your photo, makes you look wrinkly and gives you gray hair, and she did that for every kid.

    They also compiled a list on the white board of things they’d be doing when they are 100, and I got such a kick out of it, I took a pic. Some of the activities were, “walk around with crutches,” “shop every day,” “take care of a garden.”

    Glad to have found your blog!

    I’m really digging the sun and tree. I don’t think I could draw them that magnificent if I tried. He’s really got a knack for color.

    Laughed out loud at the “First, I will go to sleep.” Had to read it all to my boyfriend (and dog) after that. Absolutely adorable.

    CJ has a great sense of himself. Love that the sun is shining and he is smiling. The green shoes rock the picture. I will send it to my daughter – my grandson will enjoy seeing it!
