Overheard: The First Day of School Edition

Afterward visiting The Huntington we stopped for lunch to celebrate the first day of school and Thing 1 exclaimed, "But we didn't learn anything!" Gee, thanks.

Me: Who's George Washington?

Thing 1 and Thing 2: The first president!

Me: How many pieces of marble do you use to make a sculpture?

Thing 2: One!

Me: Do you mix colors before painting an impressionistic painting?

Thing 3: No.

Thing 2: You dab it together on the paper.

Thing 1: Its dots.

I love it! My 6 year old daughter tells me all the time she's not learning anything (since our schooling also doesn't resemble the movies, books, etc). When I ask her questions it's crystal clear she learns new things every.single.day. :)
