The Nina, The Pinta, and The Day Off Of School

My daughter's friends were over yesterday playing and giggling and squealing and having a screaming contest (outside.)

They came inside to do some crafts at the kitchen table. The conversation turned to Christopher Columbus.

This conversation was overheard-

"Tomorrow is Columbus Day. Do you get the day off of school?"

"No. Do you?"

"No."

"Then why do we even learn about Columbus if we don't get the day off?"

"Yeah!"

You may award me with the Educator Of The Year Award now. Thankyouverymuch.

Oh, priceless, Melanie! :D

And too funny, considering we did do home school this morning but it was pretty much ALL about Columbus! ;)
