For the past nine months, we have been driving the exact same route to preschool three mornings a week.
But it wasn’t until last week that the kids pointed out a parking lot and asked why so many cars turn that way.
The parking lot is for Monterey Peninsula College.
Of course this meant nothing to the kids, and I had to explain what college was.
I told them that after they finish preschool, kindergarten, and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades, they can go to more school – college. And in college you can pick to what you want to learn about.
So we may be ahead of the game, but my kids already know what they want to study in college.
Trenton wants to study:
- how racecar engines work
- how submarines go underwater
- how the earth turns
Charlotte wants to study:
- how to be a princess
