"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Play ICLW Baseball!

The brilliant Kym came up with the idea for this last night in a dream. She says "this activity is actually blended modification of a first-day icebreaker activity and an activity to make easy flexible groups (if you're a teacher and you want the actual activities, shoot me an email).

Here's what to do if you want to play ICLW Baseball:

1. Copy these instructions and post them on your blog.

2. Answer the Base Questions.

3. Find other participating bloggers who have the same answers you do. Find at least one blogger for each base and link back to them in your baseball post. You may find more than one blogger with common answers for each post base. Your post will be a work in progress. Get YOUR base answers up ASAP, then go back often to edit and add the links of bloggers who share answers with you!

4. Once your base answers are up, go to I'm a Smart One/Kymberli's blog and add your baseball post hyperlink to the list. Kym's blog is home base; check the list to find the other players."

BaseballFeel free to snag the graphic!

Here are my base answers:

1st Base: Diet Coke shared with My Bumpy Journey

2nd Base: Carrabba's Italian Grill

3rd Base: December shared with Suzy, Not a Fertile Myrtle

Home: Finding Nemo shared with Anna, A garden for butterflies, My Bumpy Journey


I hope this adds another element of fun to this week's ICLW blog hopping! Spread the word - the more who play, the easier it is to fill your bases! PLAY BALL!

What a fun idea!

We just watched Finding Nemo with Oscar recently, one of his first times actually sitting and watching a video, and he loved it.
