As you may have read in some of my other posts, I have been snowed under with assignments. At one point, I had eleven due in the same week! I thought this was rather silly, so I took a photo of all my homework and assignments to share for the latest Kids Click theme 'Silly'.
A Silly Amount of Schoolwork

Thank you for having me, Simoney!
I had Science, English, Chinese, German, Christian Education (CE), Music, Health and Physical Education (HPE) and Art homework and assessment, and cello and piano practice. That's a LOT, don't you think!? At least I had a 350g block of Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate to get me through my assessment!
Well, this hectic assessment period is basically over for a while (thankfully!) and I am in a very good mood. In fact, I am in a somewhat silly mood! And what better way to celebrate a silly mood than a silly song!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is the world-famous song from the Disney musical film Mary Poppins.
The song was written by the Sherman Brothers and sung by Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. According to Richard Sherman, co-writer of the song with his brother, Robert, the word 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' was created by them in two weeks, mostly out of double-talk. The roots of the word have been defined as: super- 'above', cali- 'beauty', fragilistic- 'delicate', expiali- 'to atone', and docious- 'educable', roughly equaling 'atoning for educability through delicate beauty'. It has been defined more simply in the movie, with 'something to say when you have nothing to say'.
I hope you enjoy this super-silly classic!

Thank you for having me, Mum!
Well, I am off to relax after my stressful assessment period. I hope you have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious day!
I hope your day is sweet,
