(Yes, it's a re-post from the pre-delete era. I am currently eating any chip I can lay my hands on and hoping that this roller coaster is on the upswing. This was the pre-Obama period. You'll get the picture...)
Mrs. Smythe: Boys and girls, we are going to talk about Presidents, because in a few days we will have a NEW president. (Thank goodness...) What do you know about the president??
Nate: We have had free (3) presidents. The first president was George Washingston. Then the second president was Habraham Lincoln. I fink Habrahan Lincoln was George Washinston’s son.
Kris: My mom went to George Washington’s house.
Nate: George Washinston cut down a cherry or an apple tree.
Kyle: Then Abraham Lincoln got mad at him-which started a war. I also know about President Bushel!
Nate: Yeah, they got in a war because of the cherry tree. And Habraham shot George Washingston.
Nick: The president’s name is not George Bushel, it’s George Washington D.C!!!
Catie: But now the war is about oil.
Annie: I met Abraham Lincoln where my dad’s parents live – in Oregon.
Nate: Are you sure that was the real Habrahan, or was it just a man dressed up??
Anie: He was real.
Mrs. Smythe: Wait, now, boys and girls, what exactly does the president do??
Nick: He keeps us safe from dying.
Ryan: I know, I know!! He protects us from the whitecoats. He also protects us from littering.
So, there we have it. All you wanted to know about the Presidents, and what exactly the president does. (I’m glad that’s all cleared up.)
