Yesterday Lily registered for kindergarten. She was so excited she said she couldn’t wait for school to start. The registrar was very friendly, and she had a table set up for children to make a picture while the paperwork was being processed. I snapped this picture with my phone; Lily’s art is over her left shoulder, a flower.
I never went to kindergarten. Fifteen years ago, I was horrified to discover I might have missed everything I really need to know.
