Wordless Wednesday: Apple Pie


Proud mama reporting back from the first kindergarten parent teacher conference. Just today, for the first time, she wrote two words all by herself:

APL PI


Oh, and that isn't a picture of a sleeping dragon - it's the side view of a pie in a blue pie dish - that's the crust along the top edge.

I think I have to make an apple pie tomorrow?

Also, she's not a psychopathic serial killer - I started by asking that and the teacher laughed merrily and said she thought she was a politician or lawyer in the making. Which is funny because from day one we've said she's going to be the Mayor (and yes, that was well before I got to know O The Joys, who has a Mayor of her own).

I'll shut up now. Have a lovely Thanksgiving tomorrow.

Yes, you absolutely must make apple pie today...

Julia said...

Me can read guess and go spelling good. But only because I have a first grader.
Charming, charming.

And having worked hard on refraining from making a joke about her pi having a numerical value other than the standard one, I am going to now not make that joke... :)

I thought she drew a Blue apple... cos she said she liked 'APL PI', which I believe its 'apple' right? *wink*

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love the way they write things in the beginning. It strikes me a so innately clever.

What a proud moment--I hope you made that apple pie!

I also hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Marinka said...

LOL! I love it! Although the line between a psychopathic serial killer and a politician/lawyer is pretty thin. (No offense to serial killers!)
