As most of you know my kids attend Catholic school. My 5 year old just started this year in kindergarten. My oldest didn't start until 1st grade because way back then (6 years ago) kindergarten was only half day and I wanted full day so he continued at Montessori through kindergarten. So other than my own experience (which my memory of is fuzzy at best) I don't have any Catholic kindergarten experience...all new for me.

Well it is totally cracking me up to have my little guy come home every day and explain what he learned.

For example:

In IKEA they have these little posable statues of people that he picked up while we were there. He was carrying it through the store and posing it while announcing the stations of the cross, very loudly! "This is Jesus when he was draggin the cross"..."This was Jesus when he was up on the cross."...."This is what Jesus looked like when they took him down, 'cept for the blood of course". "It's too bad Jesus died because I think he was really cool and would be a good friend to have."

The other day: "Mommy guess what I did today?" "I said 10 whole Hail Mary's...yup 10 of them...we learned the rosary!"

And today: "We has a feast for St. Francis...and they had an animal person come from the zoo today!" "We saw real animals." "Did you know St. Francis loved animals?" "I bet he had a Chinchilla as a pet." "Can we get a Chinchilla as a pet too?" "I think St. Francis would want us to."

He is totally cracking me up with all his new "knowledge"...LOL

He really does. I'm extremely happy with this new school. He is also of course learning letters, numbers,writing, reading and math. But the best thing they have taught him is to BEHAVE IN CHURCH!!! The difference in just 7 weeks is AMAZING!!! It's so good to be able to actually listen to the sermon instead of concentrating the evil eye on him the whole time!
