This year Dailaesse asked to go back to school. After the horrid experience we had at our Catholic school the only other option was public school. We got her all registered and I asked the principal if I could volunteer on the playground or something so I could be there to check in with her every day. That ended up landing me a paid position on the playground ground every day with the Kindergarten and 5th grade classes. Let me give you an example of how entertaining this has been...
Just before Easter break I was walking the Kindergarten class down to lunch. They were all excited about their upcoming vacations.
Kid 1: I'm going to Disney!
Me: How exciting! That's awesome!
Kid 1: Yeah. But I have to go on a plane. I've never been on one. I'm a little nervous.
Me: There's nothing to it. It's just like sitting in your living room chair.
Kid 2: I'm going to Washington D.C. for vacation.
Me: That will be lots of fun!
Kid 2: Yeah.
Me: Will you drive or fly?
Kid 2: Fly. We never drive.
Me: You should talk to Kid 1 and tell him what it's like so he won't be so nervous. Have you been to Washington before?
Kid 2: Yeah. We go lots.
Me: Do you have family there?
Kid 2: No. My grandpa and grandma live there.
