Finish These Famous Sayings:

Saw this on my friend Angel's blog and I thought I'd share KJ's version. The other night they had an open house at the school (we didn't attend -- it was our crazy dance night) and the students had a worksheet on their desks for parents to review, "Finish these Famous Sayings."
