Hello! My name is Claire Boyette. I'm five years old and in four days I will be starting Kindergarten. This morning I had a Q and A with my mom. Here's what we said.
Mama: What are you excited about school?
Claire: That I can walk there. Singing songs. I might see puppet shows.
Mama: What are you not looking forward to?
Claire: That Daddy can't stay on my first day.
Mama: What do you think is important for you to know before you start school?
Claire: To enjoy being a kid.
Mama: Tell me about what we've taught you.
Claire: You taught me to count. Daddy takes me to coin shows so I can learn about coins. I learned to keep money. I learned about evolution. You taught me when I was a baby to do puzzles.
Mama: What do you think will be hard about going to school?
Claire: To follow the rules.
Mama: Tell me a joke.
Claire: School cannot be fun but it really is. Want another? If you play with friends, you might see lizards.
Mama: What's the most exciting thing about going to school?
Claire: I don't know because I'm not excited. I love singing songs.
Mama: When people read about you, what do you want them to know?
Claire: That Mommy and Daddy might think I'm the smartest kid in my class.
