200 things

I decided to do a fun list from Kristi's blog. You should do it too! Check out her blog for more details.
All you have to do is copy the list and bold what you have done.This is a great thing for kids to have their grandparents do.
**I posted and then noticed that you can't tell which ones I bolded! So, I will put a star by the ones I have done.
