Remember when it was exciting to learn something new? Before we got old and cynical and irritable about not knowing things? I remember loving school and getting so excited when I figured something out for the first time. Especially in Kindergarten. Every day is completely new. I love watching Avery grow and learn. She loves everything about school and of course, is completely thrilled to let me know how little I know at least three times a week.

Here's a picture of the last thing she taught me. Geometric shapes. Thankfully, I not only read the Kindergarten newsletter, but I actually taught Kindergarten. So when she came home and said she learned about shapes. "Like stuff like squares, except it's not a square," I kinda knew what she meant. She told me that her teacher told her to find these kinds of shapes around the house. I told her to find them and then label them. For some reason, this totally cracks me up. Too bad I suck at photography and you can't see the labels very well..they are the best part!

In order from left to right, we have a SFER (sphere), KUIB (cube), CILADR (cylinder), and a CON (cone). Why does KUIB make me want to laugh out loud every time I look at it? Maybe I should stop drinking.
Or not.
