While at lunch last Friday (1/3/20) Emma, age 3, and I were talking about the shirt I was wearing. It was teaching shirt with a globe in the shape of an apple.  She thought it was "so silly" that the earth looked like an apple.  I explained to her my shirt was a teacher's shirt and that apples are a symbol of teaching and education. She asked why and I explained that a long time ago students gave their teachers apples to thank them for teaching them.  Today (1-10-20) Emma brought three apples to school to give her three teachers.  I am so proud of her.  Emma has amazing conversations skills and memory retention plus her ability to relate conversations to her real life is awesome.
