The color for the month of November at David’s school is brown. This shirt isn’t exactly brown, but it’s the best we could do.


David loves preschool. Loves. I can’t emphasize that enough. He would go to preschool every day for 18 hours if he could. When he’s running away from me in the morning while I try to get him dressed, all I have to say is, “David. You have to put pants on because you have school today.” And he runs over to me and stands patiently while I finish putting his clothes on. He almost never takes a nap after preschool. I guess he’s too hyped up from all the learning and playing to settle down and rest.


David goes to school one day a week for three hours, which isn’t exactly enough time for conjugating Latin or classical instruments.

But, still, preschool has exceeded our expectations, and it’s not only because David loves it so much.


Preschool has been great because it gives Tom and me a guide. The color of the month is green? Ok. We’ll talk about green at home. The shape of the month is triangle? David, can you find a triangle to show Mommy?

The teachers also teach the kids catechism questions, which is something we never even thought of talking to David about.

He has the first three questions memorized, and is excited to tell me that God not only made him, but God also made Mommy, Daddy, Mary Virginia, and even trucks. TRUCKS!!! And if God made all that, well then there’s no limit to how good He is.

(These questions are from the Westminster Shorter Catechism for Kids.)

    We have the same child. Addison is obsessed with school. Also just 3 hours one day a week but she would go all day EVERY DAY if she could. I learned the hard way NOT to mention school the night before school. Because she can’t fall asleep she’s so excited. She also has a really really hard time taking a nap after – I’ve learned not to count on it. So cool that they like their little schools so much. Ours doesn’t do catechism though. We are waay behind.
