There's been boring knitting going on here.

I've started the body of Lily after finishing the sleeves and I'm about to turn the heel of Chunky's second tiger sock.

But speaking of Chunky, he's been keeping us busy.

This weekend was kindergarten graduation.


My boy! What happened to my baby?!?!

His class put on a little variety show for the parents--little skits, poems, and Chunky and a couple of his classmates even gave a karate demonstration. I knew he takes a karate class after school each Wednesday, but I had no idea he was so good!

I won't bore you with all the video I took.

But I will post a picture of the little interviews they had with each kid that his teacher did and then hung around the auditorium.


Here's what it says if you can't read it (and the picture cuts the bottom off):

Q: What's your favorite TV show or Movie?
A: Star Wars 1.
Q: What's your favorite color?
A: Green, blue, or orange. Probably orange.

Q: If you could be any age, what would it be?
A: 20, because my mom's 29 and my dad's 30.

Q: Will you ever have kids?
A: Can you get back to that question a little later? I can't decide, annoying kids? Or not annoying kids?

Q: If you could be any superhero, who would it be?
A: Wonder Woman (he laughs at his joke). Ironman.

Q: What's your favorite thing about school?
A: Every Friday we have fun stuff to do and we have a fun teacher. We would do anything for you, even give you $1,000.

Chunky: You forgot to ask me my favorite villan!
Q: So who is your favorite villan?
A: Rhino from Spiderman.

Sweet mother of Fatzah, I'm not sure what's funnier--that kid question or the Wonder Woman joke!

I agree with Criosa - that looks like a pretty fancy kindergarten gradution - that cap and gown are nicer than the plain black ones I wore when I graduated from college!

Those answers Chunky gave to the questions are too funny, especially the one about having kids!

If you think time is going by quickly now, wait until Chunky starts elementary school - it just seems to zoom by after that.

Holy Moo Cows! How funny are those answers?

You've got a smart cookie on your hands--only a smarty pants could make a joke like the Wonder Woman one.

His answers are precious. That's one of those things that you save and give to him when he gets older.

Congratulations Chunky! On to conquer First Grade! That is quite the elaborate grad ceremony, too - back in the day, we made hats out of construction paper and masking tape and wore our regular clothes.

LOL, those answers are too funny! Ask him to elaborate on the age one!

Aw, he's witty just like you! What a cute little "big man". Congratulations Chunky!!!

I wonder where he gets that sense of humour ;0)

He's certainly got the smarts - I'm sure with your guidance and excellent parenting he'll put that to good use.

It's strange how time warps. A day at work can seem like forever, but then you have a baby and about 10 minutes later they're off to school.

Congrats Chunky :0)
