Like ostriches

Progress reports are coming home from school, so there has been much quiet reflection and self-assessment over the past few days. Even by our kindergartener.

"I came into kindergarten already knowing a lot of stuff, and now I have learned even more!"

I thought of how he had blossomed during his year of pre-school, learning the letters of the alphabet, learning to count past thirteen finally. "So you feel like you knew lots of things before the year started?"

"Yeah. Like that dolphins are birds but just can't fly."
