Each day at pre-school the kids learn and practice letters of the alphabet. Wednesday night at dinner I asked Eric how school was. Eric said “Not good – we did the letter Y. It’s not for me”. Apparently he had problems drawing his Y’s.
Friday when queried about school he said “Yahoo! Dad – guess what? We did the letter Z and we are done with the letters”. Kathryn reminded him that now they move on to the numbers. “Oh yeah”, Eric said in a lowered voice.
I think Eric was under the impression that once done with the alphabet he was done with school as he told Kathryn he was skipping kindergarten. “Oh”, she said, “you are going right to 1st grade?” Eric replied, “No, I am skipping them all”.
