Ryan's Thoughts On Kindergarten

Phil: How was your day at school?
Ryan: It was good, but the sad thing is, they have all these tubs of toys and they never let kids play with them!
Phil: Really?
Ryan: Ever!  They have all these toys and they never let kids play.
Phil: Is that because you're trying to learn?
Ryan: Yes.  They're just trying to make us do songs and papers and isn't that not so fun?!

 Ryan: We just have to sit in chairs and do all the work.

Ryan: Did you know Mrs. Thomas is nice?

Phil: What did you learn at school today?
Ryan: I learned Jack be nimble, Jack  be quick, Jack jump over the candle stick.  Jack would really like to jump over my candle stick.  If my candle was real and Jack jumped over it, he would burn his butt off.
(They later played Jack jump over the candle stick and Jack promptly smashed Ryan's candle.  There were lots of tears, but we repaired it.)

Ryan: We just have to sit in chairs and do all the work.

Day 2

Ryan: There is this girl in my class that cries all day and says, "I want my mom." This boy David said, "Stop sniffling." The teacher said, "No, David!" with her finger, just like the book!

Ryan: Guess what? Some of the kids say, "Help that smart guy."  
Phil: And who's the smart guy?
Ryan: They call me the smart guy.
Phil: Really?
Ryan: It's because I'm taller than them.  If you're taller, you're smarter.

Ryan: How come all the people at my school have weird names? I mean, there's a Mrs. Pazookie (Szcuzucki) and a Mr. Bowl (Boles) and a girl name Giselle?!?  Have you ever heard that name before?
