The More you Know...

Brooklynn continues to come home with a wide array of things she's learning in her new class.
In addition to the life lessons I posted about a few days ago, she also learned that:

1. You can't wrestle like bears or jump like frogs in the library.
2. When you sit next to kids named Tommy, he will teach you to make farting noises, and will also bring you presents to school (more on that one Monday).
3. A 'little line' (hyphen) means you need more room.
4. It's always nice to be a bucket filler.*

* Bucket Filling has something to do with being nice, but I'm still working on getting a better understanding of what the heck she's talking about! :)

Learned in Kindergarten

We have had lots of changes in our family over the past few weeks. One of them is Brooklynn starting Kindergarten at her new school. She is working on her second day there, and so far she is having a blast!

When I picked her up from school yesterday, I promise it was like she had grown up a bit since I dropped her off! It was fun to listen to all her stories on the way home.

I listened to all the things she'd learned in school, and decided to start keeping track of what she says she learns. Should be interesting--here are the first lessons she learned in Kindergarten.

1. Two rows of three makes six.
2. When you wear a Gator hat, no one is supposed to talk to you. (Her teacher wears
one during 'quiet time' when the kids are not supposed to get out of their seats?
--at least that's what I gathered)
3. "One, two, three! Eyes on me!" is really fun to say over and over and over and over!
4. One can't be bothered with eating pasta for lunch when Mom packs cookies and
Cheez-Its too!

I'm anxious to see what she learns today!
In the meantime, here are some pics from her first day!
