What I learned in Kindergarten

Y’all may not know this, but I recently went back to school. I decided to just start things over. Start from scratch. I went back to kindergarten.

A lot has changed in kindergarten since the Dark Ages when I was in school. Back in the Day, in Missouri where I was raised, the school system didn’t do kindergarten. Since I was “highly spirited” (aka ADHD before ADHD was a thing) my mom decided I needed the structure of a regular school day, so she enrolled me in Mrs. Harrison’s Kindergarten. Mrs. Harrison was not only my kindergarten teacher, she was my day care provider. I went to both morning and afternoon sessions and stayed until 5 or so. I got a double whammy of instruction there and double the time to string some beads. Some days felt really, really long. Some days it was really tough being a five-year-old.
