Gavin's Fall Poem

Today Frank and I went to Gavin's school for the first parent/teacher conference of the year. It went great. We love his teacher! She is so amazing and when I see the things she does I feel really sorry for the kids I used to teach. She is so much fun and is all over positive reinforcement which is right up Gavin's ally. He is earning all kinds of rewards and just LOVING school. And he is doing really well academically as well. His biggest hiccup is handwriting but it has improved leaps and bounds from last year.

Today as we were waiting outside his classroom for her we were looking at the kids Fall poems on the wall. Each kid did their own with their own words inserted after hello and goodbye. Frank and I almost died when we read his.
Here it is:

We were pretty sure we could read one of the lines, but were hoping it wasn't true...but yes...we read it right.

Here is Gavin's Fall poem:

It's Fall.

Hello Football.

Goodbye Swimming.

Hello Water.

Goodbye Penoclode.

Hello scholl.

Goodbye fun.

It's Fall oh boy.

It's Fall!

Gavin 9-21-10

So, he sounded it all out phonetically and it took us a minute but we soon realized that Penoclode, was indeed Pina Colada.

Really Gavin?? Really?? We maybe made them 3 times this summer as a fun treat by the pool, alcohol free. But I am sure the teachers aren't thinking that.

Oh Gavin Morgan...you are your father's son!

Super funny! Kids, they say the funniest things. Would love to know what the teacher was thinking...
It was a good poem though.
