In case you were wondering

what your hard earned tax dollars are paying for, here's an example.

My sitter picked up my son from kindergarten Tuesday and on the way back to her house she asked him how his day was and asked what he had done. The conversation went like this

Sitter: What did you do today Blake?

Blake: nothing, we didn't even go anywhere

Sitter: well what did you learn in your classroom?

Blake: nothing

Sitter: what did your teacher talk about?

Blake: I don't know, I wasn't listening

Sitter: Blake you didn't listen to anything she said?

Blake: no, but I will listen to you at your house miss Paula

Oh boy, it's a good thing that this is the first year of school and he'll get a lot more practice.

Blake and Zach are obviously in the same class since that is the exact same response I get from Zach!

Honestly? I think it might be a boy thing... my little girl will tell me all kinds of things from Primary or when she goes somewhere. My son? It's like pulling teeth to get him to say anything about his day! Except, instead of saying "nothing" I usually get the "I dunno"

my son came home from kindergarten and when I asked him how it went he said "mom I had to listen to ms. junek all day and i just don't want to listen to you." he sat on the couch and fell asleep.

It's hard for them to remember EVERYTHING ; ) Just think of all the fun stuff that's swirling around in their little heads.

Hee hee. I never paid attention either. Too busy staring out the windows and daydreaming as I remember.
