Who needs Europe?

Yesterday Landon was working on a history assignment and had to make a world map.  He was suppose to burn the edges of the map to make it look old.  Well.....
I TRIED not to laugh but....ended up laughing so hard I almost peed my pants.
BEST part was his response:
"Well, only half of Europe is gone and some of the Atlantic Ocean, my teacher will never notice"  
He turned it in just like this.  What teacher recommends a 10 year old burn something?

Good times.

I'm on my way out the door for a 7 miler.  Legs are STILL killing from the lunges on Monday, CURSE YOU LUNGES CURSE YOU!

Happy Running!


  1. That's a hate crime in some countries.

  2. That's how the earth looks when it's flat!

  3. Love his response! Yeah, what was that teacher thinking?

  4. OMGosh love this. Hey at least he knows where Europe is. one up on me. I just fly there. I'm not the freaking pilot. who cares - my teacher never noticed.

  5. Wait, that's not how the world actually looks? I always just figured that Europe was a big gap with a cute kid poking through :p

  6. So he burned "some" edges of Europe and the Atlantic.
    Lunges are evil, pure evil.

  7. I just showed my 10 year old this post and comments and this is what he said:

    "Wow, people have weird responses. If I had a blog I wouldn't say anything like that."

    HA! Makes me think of Chris K's post. "Come on Landon tell us, tell us what the cool kids are saying!"

  8. Priceless. I love how he still has the lighter in his hand.

  9. Keep that photo. Your kid will laugh at it when he get older. I am not sure why the teacher would recommend a kid to burn anything also.
