This interview was painful. Not much of it's true.
But here's the story, straight from the source, right from Ace to you.
Ok, Ace. Tell me all about your day. I know you started with Playdoh.
I played with blue Playdoh.
No, yours was yellow.
No, it was BLUE. Write blue.
Fine, then what.
We went on the playground. Then we ate snacks. Then we went to the cafeteria. So we ate lunch. I had my Spiderman lunchbox. All of my friends had Spiderman lunchboxes. Landon did. Landon had a Spiderman backpack. Then I got a new backpack. Then someone just pushed me out the slide...um... Kegan.
So you played with Playdoh at the beginning and then what did Mrs. Gott say?
Criss Cross applesause, hands in your lap. Then we played. I played cars. I played robots. I played fighting, played defeating, played weapons. Then we read a story.
That story. (The same Night Before Kindergarten storybook that Honey bought him.)
So...The End...Happily Ever After.
Did Mrs. Gott teach you anything?
No she didn't teach me anything...I sat on the letter...What's your favorite letter?
I sat on the letter K.
Did you talk to anyone? You sat across from a nice boy named Isaiah.
There were TWO Isaiahs. They hit me.
So do you want to go back tomorrow?
Guess I'll have to bribe him, if I want some more details,
I'll be sure to fill you in, if what I do prevails!

Today arrived, despite all that I tried.
And I will admit, I cried and cried.
He woke up at six with bright, lively eyes ,
Honey saw him off, a special surprise.
Mom held him tight with a big broken heart,
Before she was ready, school had to start.
One family pic, the best we could do,
If you have kids, this has happened to you.
A smile I'll treasure, the cutest of all.
If only I could always keep him this small.
A walk down the hallway, to wait for the bell.
Nobody told me that Kinder was hell. (Sorry it rhymes.)
It rang and he's off, to learn and be taught,
Here he is with his teacher, Lord bless her, Mrs. Gott.
A blessing: a friend in his class from our gym,
With playdoh in hand, it was time to begin.
Time to pick up approached and my interest grew greater,
I asked of his day and with NERVE he said, "Later!!!!!"

Today Lily met her new class,
Mommy prayed that she wouldn't sass,
The toys were cool,
She liked her new school,
Its test, I'd say, it did pass.
My thoughts were quite mistaken,
That a good pic could be taken,
I tried from every angle,
Until Lily I could STRANGLE,
But she messed and played unshaken.
Here's a photo of her room,
Behind, maybe her Groom?
Her sub and her teacher,
Think if I beseech her...
Lily will crawl back into the womb???
Her dimples are a tease,
Mommy begs her "please",
But she tells me no,
To the hundredth photo,
Or gives me this awful cheese!
For photos I'm determind and bound,
Even when she stares at the ground,
But I've got to record,
Even though she's quite bored,
And would rather be running around.
This Mommy tries and tries,
I bribe with treats and fries,
But it's a simple fact,
That any item can distract,
Or the SUN glares in their eyes!
So, I think, here Lils will thrive,
It's her school til she turns five,
She'll play and she'll learn,
I need not concern,
Let's hope her teachers survive!

We are learning real quick over here,
Country livin' sometimes is queer,
Like last night we were out,
Just messin' about,
Spreading some corn for the deer.
(Or rather, we threw it all over ourselves and the deer came later.)

Yesterday was Jonathan's company picnic.
We started out at the face painting and Ace was painted like an Angry Bird.
Jonathan got a craving for s'mores and I think he's started an obsession in our house.
And saving some on the chin for later.
"What did you give me that is STICKY?!"
"Mmmmm, maybe I like sticky."
And some for later on the cheek.
The countdown is 3 weeks until kindergarten. I am taking the day off to snuggle Lily Kate and mourn the end of Ace's days at home with me. Oh, it's just the pits.
