The Princess' teacher had the class write proverbs. You've seen similar things in other emails, I'm sure, but basically, she provided them with the beginning of proverbs with the instructions to finish them. I thought they were so cute, I'm publishing them here.

Proverbs by The Pink Princess

Strike while the ... ball is coming at you.

It's always darkest before ... daylight.

Never underestimate the power of ... clocks.

You can lead a horse to water, but ... you can't let it swim.

Don't bite the hand that ... is bleeding.

No news is ... good as a party.

A miss is as good as a ... hit.

You can't teach an old dog ... if you're sleeping.

If you lie down with dogs, you ... will get licked.

Love all, (you) trust ... in your heart. (The Princess edited this one with "you".)

The pen is mightier than ... my books.

An idle mind is a ... stopping mind.

Where there is smoke, there's ... fire.

Happy is the bride who ... fell. (I'll remind her of that one on her wedding day!)

A penny saved is ... worth a gumball.

Two is company, three's ... are fun.

None are so blind as ... a worm.

Children should be seen and not ... seen on markers.

If at first you don't succeed, . . . try, try, again.

You get out of something what you ... hate.

When the blind lead the blind ... they bump each other.
