I *LOVE* 1st Grade!

And my very sweet, hysterically funny 1st Grader!

Today was Mom's Day at Ethan's school and we were invited to a Mother's Day "tea." Ethan proudly escorted me to his seat in class where I got waited on with Lemonade and cookies...oh and M&M's - can't forget the M&M's! They sang a song which was stinkin' adorable, then we got a massage, card and a flowering potted plant. (Boy were were spoiled! ;)) But my favorite part? Well, my absolute favorite part was a booklet they made with "First Grade Words of Wisdom." Each child had to fill in the blanks on their own and this is how my son's read:

First Grade Words of Wisdom by Ethan Goree

Better to be safe than in jail.
You can't teach an old dog new stuff.
A penny saved is keeping a penny.
Don't bit the hand that you write with. It's my good arm.
As you make your bed, so shall you get a treat.
It's always darkest before bedtime.
You can lead a horse to water but you can't lead a cat to water.
An idle mind is when your brain is frozen like when you eat ice cream.
Where there's smoke, there's smoking people.
A bird in the hand is worth $5.00.
A stitch in time is worth $4 or $5.
Actions speak louder than a mouse.
Absence makes the heart beat.
Look before you cross the road.
Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man sleepy.
Two may keep a secret if you don't tell.
It's better to have loved and lost than to throw it in the trash.
The grass is always greener than a grasshopper. Sometimes they are brown.
A watched pot blows up.
Children should be seen and not be smoking.

Oh yes, I love first grade!

Oh my goodness! Ethan is too hilarious. Sounds like he's dead set to be a non-smoker, though. Way to go!
