school daze

I've been impressed by just how quickly K seems to be maturing, now that she's going to Montessori preschool. She's much more solicitous of her younger sister, and offers to share without prompting. L loves this, of course, just as she loves most everything about her older sister. She repeats whatever K says, whether or not she knows what she's talking about (usually not). K puts up with this, more or less (more when she's rested and happy, less when not). What else can she do? She's the older sister.

On the other hand, it's mighty hard to get any specific information out of K about school. We're not sure who all of the kids are in her class, nor do we get a lot of detail on her day.

me: What did you do in school today?
K: K no 'member.
L: No member.
me: Did you do music?
K: No.
me: Did you do Farmer in the Dell?
L: Farmer in Dell!
K: Yeah.
L: Farmer in Dell, Farmer in Dell, Farmer in Dell!
me: How about circle? Did you do the circle?
K: After we have snack and go play then we come in and do circle. Every day daddy."
L: Every day! L dizzy. Thnack!!

This doesn't bode well for the high school years!

We have the exact same thing with Austin.
- What did you do today?
- I don't know / I don't remember.

I think it's important to just keep asking, someday they'll open up. Either that or we can hook up K & A on facebook and spy on them talking to each other!!
