Welcome to Kindergarten!

From one of my favorite books:

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
by Robert Fulghum

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 Sunday School.

These are 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.
