Though we have nursery nightmares (those caused by our well behaved son), we are pleasently pleased when he comes home with pictures, songs, and insights into what occurred in class. Normally we don't get the whole picture so we turn to the teachers for the story.
Following nursery today the nursery leader, Sister Mason, commented on what Parker had planted in his little cup during class. She said that he had planted "pop-corn". She then told me the story.
Apparently they had two choices to choose from, "beans" or "corn". Parker of course, knowing his vegetables, couldn't resist the opportunity to be the first to plant "pop-corn", so he told his teacher he wanted to plant "pop-corn".
And so his little cup sits in the windowsill waiting to become "pop-corn". Even I can't wait to see this happen.
