Overheard on the Way to School

The kids were having "science quizzes" on the way to school today.


Mason: "Which type of lizard has spots? A. Leopard Gecko B. Chinese Water Dragon

Bria (neighbor girl): "Ummmm A?"

Mason: "Corrrrrect!"



Mason: "Ellorie's turn. Ellorie, why do leaves fall off the trees in the fall?"

Ellorie: "I know! Because it gets too cold."

Mason: "Incorrect. Bria?"

Bria: "Um, because it gets too windy?"

Mason: "Incorrect. This is why: The leaves have little tubes in them that send water and food to the tree. In the fall all the nutrients go down to the roots and the tree plugs up the little tubes in the leaves so they have nothing left to do except fall off."

Ellorie: "That's what I meant, Mason!"

Mason: "Ellorie, that's 3rd grade science, you couldn't have known that!"

Ellorie: "Oh. Okay."

Hahahahaha! Mason is so funny. He's right. How could a couple of first graders know anything about 3rd grade science. I love Ellorie's comment back. Too cute. =)

Hmm. What does it say about me that I didn't know that? Maybe I should enroll in 3rd grade.
