Perhaps some fears are well-founded.

We, the Jackson Clan of Chaos, are going to try the "Make Something 365" challenge put forth by Noah Scalin: Choose a theme or medium, then make something every day for a year.
Brief background from his site skulladay.blogspot.com:
"My name is Noah Scalin and I made a Skull-A-Day for a year. I started by making an orange paper skull on June 4th, 2007 and posting it online saying, 'I'm making a skull a day for a year.' I made my 365th skull on June 2nd, 2008 (and even posted a bonus skull the day after since it was a leap year!)."
I found Noah's book 365: A Daily Creativity Journal online, ordered it, and became inspired to give this challenge a try. Today, I introduced the idea to the boys and quickly found cautious enthusiasm, heavily sprinkled with subject dissension.
So because we couldn't all agree on a subject, we're going to start two projects: 365 Baseballs-a-Day and 365 Robots-a-Day.
The boys, headed by my slightly obsessive son Rylan, will be in charge of the baseball project (a-baseball-a-day.blogspot.com). And, I, the definitely obsessive mother, will be in charge of this robot project, while filtering/incorporating the offspring's input.
To date, general follow-through has not been our strong point, so feel free to verbally accost, forcefully tackle, or otherwise make us guilt-ridden and, therefore, accountable.
And so it begins . . .
