David's Proverbs & Nathan's too!

My friend Cindy forwarded me an email listing out the beginning of well known proverbs that were completed by first graders. For example, it said, "It's always darkest before" and the first grader filled in "before daylight savings time." It was pretty funny so I decided to have David complete the list too. Here are his proverbs. A few don't make much sense, but some of the others are pretty good.

Strike while the……clock ????

It’s always darkest….at night time

Never underestimate the power of……the devil

You can lead a horse to water but……not lead it to badness

Don’t bite the hand that…..is God’s

No news is……..newer than God

A miss is as good as a ……………. Bad catch

You can’t teach an old dog new ……things

If you lie down with dogs, you’ll…… be warm

Love all, trust…….in the Lord

The pen is mightier than the……devil

An idle mind is …….. lazy

Where there is smoke there’s …….a fire alarm

Happy the bride who……is with their husband

A penny saved is ……..one cent

Two is company, but three is…….not

Don’t put off until tomorrow what…….you need

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and…….you are pouting

There are none so blind as ………the devil

Children should be seen and not…….be mean

If at first you don’t succeed……..read

You get out of something what you……can get stuck in it

when the blind lead the blind…..that means sin

A bird in the hand is ……. Food

Better late than …..night

_______________________________________

I added Nathan's proverbs too. All I can say is "Oh my!" He needed some help understanding what I was asking so my explanations may have confused him on some.

Strike while the…… force is with you

It’s always darkest….when the lights are turned off

Never underestimate the power of……the force

You can lead a horse to water but……you can’t feed him to much

Don’t bite the hand that…..hurts

No news is……..not exciting

A miss is as good as a ……………. ball

You can’t teach an old dog new ……tricks

If you lie down with dogs, you’ll…… be eight

Love all, trust…….me

The pen is mightier than the……pencil

An idle mind is …….. nothing

Where there is smoke there’s …….fire

Happy the bride who……gets married

A penny saved is …….. for the Senior girls to go to Africa (his class is collecting coins to help the senior girls go on a mission trip.)

Two is company, but three is…….nothing

Don’t put off until tomorrow what…….clothes you need

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and…….you get a shot

There are none so blind as ………us

Children should be seen and not…….get a lot of toys out

If at first you don’t succeed……..you should burp

You get out of something what you……put in the sack

when the blind lead the blind…..that is not staying home

A bird in the hand is ……. A robin

Better late than …..staying out

That is one of my favorites too Lauren! If you put it together with another one, you get, "Strike while the force is with you because you can never underestimate the power of the force!" :)

The boys answers were cute! I really liked the one mentioned above too. I guess Nathan was on a Star Wars kick that day.
