Em’s preschool is pretty close to the mountains and so I wasn’t too surprised when we got to school on Friday and there was a note on the door that said there had been a bobcat sighting and the kids were going to have indoor recess until the bobcat was caught by animal control.
I read Em the sign and explained to her what it all meant when we were walking into the school, but Nena was with us and we didn’t get to talk much about it. NENA (and DADDY) WERE COMING TO SCHOOL! We were so very excited all week to show Nena her cubby, classroom, and teacher.
So J. went to pick Em up from school and when they got home he came in and was laughing. Supposedly Em told Daddy that they could not go out for recess because “Bob the cat” was outside.
Then I picked her up Monday –
M: How was your day?
E: Ella’s daddy is a fireman and he gave us firehats and we got to go on the firetruck and I had granola bars and apple juice for a snack and we got to color all the firetruck pictures and did you know that if your clothes catch on fire you need to stop, drop, roll? Yeah, Ella’s daddy taught us that and then he showed us but I was to scared to try it and then we got to go to recess.
M: Wow. That is quite a day, did you…
E: Oh Mom! Mom! They catched Bob the Cat! He is just a big cat, did you know that? Probably just bigger than Tiger and Smokey.
