My Kindergarten Challenge for You

See what came home in the folder today?


In case you need a translation, it's:

"I want to learn about grass and snow and infinity and God and red."

See, now my Kindergartener has a goal for the year. And now's your chance to do the same.

Don't just set the goal. Write it down by hand and color yourself a pretty picture to represent it.

To make it easier for you, I've created the blank page below. So grab your crayons and get to work. And then share!

I. LOVE. THIS! Love it! Now, where are my crayons? :-)

Christine Marciniak said...

She has put me to shame! I need a goal. And I totally love hers.

Donna said...

Cutest, ever!

I want to learn about the same things.

Tina Lynn said...

*steals C's crayons* Woo hoo!

Shelli Cornelison said...

Adorable list. She listed some of my favorite things. Well, except infinity--infinity makes my head hurt. I'm jealous of her kindergarten quest for knowledge!

Kelly said...

Awwww. That is awesome (oops, I meant osum)! I love to color with my kindergartener. It's relaxing!

Aleetha said...

So cute
I wish I have crayon here :D

PJ Hoover said...

Find them, Shannon! And then post when you're done :)

I love hers, too, Chris. I want to want to learn about so many things.

LOL, Donna! Thanks! Better get cracking!

Can't wait to see, Tina! Crayons are such a necessity.

PJ Hoover said...

Funny, Shelli! Maybe Excedrin will make everything better.

It is relaxing, Kelly, when I let myself take the time to do it!

I wish you did, too, Aleetha!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Have you been talking to her about black holes and red dwarves or what? That is such an amazing list.
I once tried to think how to describe colors to someone blind from birth. That's a challenge.

I'll consider my goals. I've got lots of crayons. :D

PJ Hoover said...

Tricia, maybe it's from watching Star Trek :) I've thought that same blind questions, and it certainly does make for a challenge. Once she figures it out, I'll have her explain it to me.

Rena said...

That is awesome! I've got lots of Crayons if anyone needs them. I have to clear off the Play-Doh from the table first, though.

Great list!

Natalie Aguirre said...

That is so awesome. I've been glad there have been lots of discussions about setting goals on different blogs. I'm hoping having more concrete ones this year will keep me motivated.

Miriam S. Forster said...

*grabs green crayon* This year I want to learn about people and publishing and tap-dancing and God and scrambled eggs....

*gets distracted and starts drawing a dragon*

PJ Hoover said...

Oooh, or maybe you could use the play-doh, Rena! Now that would be interesting.

Me, too, Natalie! I'm off to color my page tomorrow!

Miriam, thank you for the enormous laugh. It made my night! Now go scramble some eggs.
