2008 End of Year Review

So last January, the Carpool Club decided to see if any of us could complete Elementary School again and began quizzing each other using the "...Smarter than a 5th Grader..." daily calendar. Each month we would have one carpool dedicated to asking the month's set of questions and then reviewing the previously completed questions. Since5 January 2009 was the first "full" carpool of the year, we decided that Juicy and Chester would have the official End of Year Exam. Take my word that it was very competitive (although Chester had not previously shown any signs of being able to hang with Juicy. When all was said and done, Juicy had correctly answered 169 questions first and Chester had correctly answered 140 questions first. They both can move to Junior High...again.

New Year's Resolutions

It's officially the time for all of us to lie, even if we don't mean to do so. Even the best carpooler is only 60% effective on maintaining true to new NY Resolutions...hardly a passing grade even in the most gracious schools. Regardless, here we go: Juicy - 10 pushups a day ("Hey -- if I'm down doing 10, I'll surely do more.") Chester - Maintaining last year's resolution for healthy eating and not going to the office's "mini-mart" Dash - I'll post to the blog (what do you know, resolution met -- I'm done for the year) Have a Healthy and Happy New Year!
