Bear of the Month

October was a great month and perhaps the best on record. Why? Because I was the Bear of the Month at my school…technically, I was one of the Bears of the Month for my Kindergarten class, but the way I prefer to see it was I was THE Bear of the Month. Some may think that this is just something that cycles through the students and that everyone will be at one point or another, but I contend that the math doesn’t work (I sound like Obama there don’t I?). The first clip below shows me accepting my award at our monthly Spirit Day…along with some others that don’t need to be mentioned. Note: I am the only one holding my award up right and waving at mommy, grannie, and daddy. 

The second clip shows our school doing the Thriller dance because we were getting ready for Halloween. And for the record, I do know the Thriller dance, I just exercised my right as an American to abstain from acting like a dancing monkey like the other 500 kids in the gym – even though deep down I kinda want to be one of the dancing monkeys, too.

It’s been a while so sorry to disappoint – I have been busy learning and getting use to my new school. I have also been busy with another project I will tell you about in a few.

So about school, everything has been pretty cool. I love music, art, and PE the best. PE is actually a lot like Stretch-n-Grow that I refused to do for 3 years at my old school. I may have been wrong about that, but I will never admit it to anyone. I’m learning some of the same stuff I did at my old school, but I am getting even better at it so it’s all good. I do color in the lines a lot better now. Daddy does tell me that it’s okay to color out of the lines every now and then or when I get inspired then he started spouting off names like Picasso, Matisse, Pollock, and so on. He says it will make a lot more sense when I get older so I will just have to trust him on that one.

My teachers and classmates are pretty cool other than the two girls at my table who keep taking my crayons. They make me pretty mad when they do that. Mommy and daddy want to get involved, but they know I have to figure out how to handle this situation on my own so I develop those people/negotiation/coping skills. Other than that, they are actually pretty cool and every now and then, we walk to the office together to return stuff. I also walk to my class by myself now – mommy and daddy can’t walk past a certain point now so I have to do it on my own. It isn’t the best walk, but not so bad – haven’t got lost yet.

The other day was one of the best days at school because we had Spirit Day. It’s kind of like a pep rally from what my parents say, but without the sports teams. Below is a video from the rally.
