A Cute Reflection

Pretty and Boo had their Kindergarten graduation today.  Their wonderful teachers went above and beyond with their graduation ceremony giving out diplomas, photos and even a small gift to each of the children.  Part of their small gift was a magnet.  The enscription up it is very sweet and very true so I thought I would print what the magnet said for you.

All I Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergaten
by Robert Fulgham

Share everything * Play fair * Don't hit people * Put things back where you found them * Clean up your own mess * Don't take things that aren't yours * Say you are sorry when you hurt somebody * Wash your hands before you eat * Flush * Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you * Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some * Take a nap every afternoon * When you go out into the world, watch for traffic, hold hands and stick together * Wonder, Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup:  The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that * Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die.  So do we * And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK (REGARDE) * Everything you need to know is in there somewhere.  The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation.  Ecology and politics and equality and sane living * Think of what a better world it would be if we all - the whole world - had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap.   Or if all the governments had as a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess.  

And it is still true, no matter how old you ware - 
when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.
