What Maddie Learned In School--So Far...

Today was Maddie's second day of preschool. I had the pleasure of going along with Maddie and her mama for the ride. Being the "blogger at heart" that I am, I had to take a picture of her little red schoolhouse. Isn't it cute? Maddie's classroom is on the left.

We were the first ones to arrive at school. We parked on the grass in front of the school to wait until it was time to go inside. We got reprimanded for parking on the grass...Darn, we got in trouble on the second day of school!!!

We didn't have to ask Maddie what she did in school today. Her shirt told the story--they painted! Maddie says they are learning about the color "red". Strange, we could have sworn that you were learning "blue" from the looks of your shirt!

Maddie came out of school smiling again, saying "I had fun!" Not every kid shared her sentiments, however. A boy named Darius came out looking rather stressed. We overheard his dad asking the teacher how he did. The teacher replied, "Darius had a rough time" The dad replied, "Yes, he had a rough night last night, he hardly slept any." Thank goodness Maddie likes school!

Sarah's name came up in Maddie's after school conversation again.(She's the little girl who told Madison to "get out of my house" on the first day of school.) Today she told Madison "don't look at me!" Wow, what is it with this kid?

The last--and possibly the most important--thing that Maddie learned in preschool today was to "tear off two sheets of toilet paper" in the bathroom. Wow...who knew?

Now, let's recap what Maddie learned this week. (1)Preschool is fun. (2) Sarah apparently has social issues. (3) Don't park on the grass. (4) Maddie could use practice painting the paper instead of her clothes. (5)Darius does not like school. (6) Only use two squares of toilet paper. Not too bad for the first week!
