Photo *Heart* Fridays – Hold Hands and Stick Together


I think the simplest of reminders work the best sometimes.

Chanced upon these quote – it spoke to me as I was reminded that our lives (hb and mine) first crossed when we were in Kindergarten – in Lutheran Church when we were 5 years old. I discovered that when we were dating, my MIL showed me a photograph of hb in kindergarten, the very same photograph I had from kindergarten, with the both of us seated at far ends in the same class.

When we were 5, in Kindergarten 1. The same age that K is at now.


All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

Most of what I really need
To know about how to live
And what to do and how to be
I learned in kindergarten.
Wisdom was not at the top
Of the graduate school mountain,
But there in the sandpile at school.
These are the things I learned:
Share everything.
Play fair.
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life –
Learn some and think some
And draw and paint and sing and dance
And play and work everyday some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world,
Watch out for traffic,
Hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.”
