 Well, lets see...um...... a sense of humor, an excitement, a love of learning, an ever ready laugh, lots of fun thoughts. Oh and before I forget, lots of giggles too.  : )

 Oh yeah, and an open mind to the thought that learning comes from every which direction and anything can be used to learn without having to by a whole bunch of " stuff ".  

*no offense intended to all who believe otherwise.

BOB books. My 2 youngest learned to read from these books, they are simple at first and progressively get harder as you go through them.

 Looks like I'm basically set then :) I know it's 'just' kindergarten, but I want everything to go smoothly and I have this constant fear that Im going to forget something major...Its so nervewracking!
