Now THAT is a good school!

After just three weeks of Kindergarden Art spontaneously asked for paper so he could "do letters". We were in the car at the cottage at the time - on VACATION, but he had been bitten by the writing bug and so he sounded out and wrote the following:


What!? This is a boy who wouldn't even hold a pencil because it was too hard, let alone try to write HELICOPTER DRIVER! And then he added his brother's future job, BACKHOE MAN just to raise the stakes.

I am reminded once again not to push my kids to learn things until they are ready because when they are truly ready they will push themselves.

Once they get the writing bug, it's all they want to do. I swear I spend all day long spelling things out loud for No. 2. It was the same when No. 1 started writing.
