But the three of us don't do anything halfway, dammit! So, Bryan brought home 100 packing peanuts (the wheat water-soluble kind, of course) and we decided to stick them into a cardboard box via 100 toothpicks. Halfway through we realized making a class project that looked (and felt) like the dude from Hellraiser was maybe an recipe for disaster... but we were already committed.
And it went off without a hitch. No toothpick-related injuries to speak of, and Declan had a blast at his party.
Happy first 100 days of public school, Declan! Only about 2,000 more days to go, buddy!
