And one more thing...

Lisa convinced me that if I don't post other news tonight then Jessie may be finishing highschool before I post anything saying that she just started Kindegarten. Jessie was really excited for her first day of school and was so excited to ride the bus for the first time ever. Jessie started school about a week after Bree was born. She, of course, woke up early that day and was all dressed and ready to go an hour or so before the bus was supposed to come and pick her up. We offered to take her to school on her first day, but she wanted nothing to do with that. Even though we only live about a half mile from school, there is one section of road without a sidewalk so they bus the kids in our neighborhood. Our little Jessie is growing up.

One thing to note about kindegarten though, I think the teachers tell the kids to not tell the parents anything about what they do in school each day. That is my conspiracy theory. I know when my parents asked me what I did in school each day I probably said "nothing." I had to have learned that response at an early age before I would remember where it came from. Now that I have a child in school and whenever I ask her what she did each day she will respond "nothing." I think the kids are taught by the kindegarten teachers what their response should be to that answer. I can usually bribe her with dessert in order to get an answer because she is still young, but I think that response is definitely learned.
