Our assignment this week – to make a model of the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. Guess which one I did?
The Pinta or “painted one”, the fastest of the three ships?
I’ll give you a hint. Mine took 2 minutes and required a walk to the kitchen by way of my desk. JD’s took THREE HOURS and required a trip to the Dollar Tree and Walmart.
When Rachel and JD began to pack them for show-and-tell, I had to break it to them – it wasn’t actually for “real” school – it was just for US, you know, to LEARN.
I’m not sure who was more disappointed.
