I wouldn’t really call this a “trick”, but Averie did learn something new today — she’s learned how to spell her own name.
When we got home I stopped the car and took a quick video:
Yesterday at preschool the kids learned about firefighters. I sort of knew this, given that there was a firefighter coloring page in her backpack, but I didn’t really think about it.
The bar in town, Long Shots, burnt down today. We drove by it on our way home (to be fair, I think almost all of Van Horne is on our way home). There was no longer a building standing and must of the rubble was spread out into the street.
I was only in there a total of maybe three times, but I’m still sad to see any establishment leave this little town! It’s unfortunate.
I don’t think Averie quite knew what to think. Not realizing she had just learned about fire safety in school, I asked her what she should do if the house was on fire. Her “Drop and Roll” response took me back for a second since it wasn’t something I had ever taught her — we had talked about going outside and crossing the street if the house itself was on fire, and that’s what I was expecting her to say.
I’m glad to know that it sunk in, and that she obviously is learning things in school too!
And seriously — how cute is she when she spells her own name anyway?!
