Manners Tea Party

Here are the Kindergartners lining up for their big entrance! They were so excited to get to dress up for school instead of having to wear their uniforms.
The next pictures came out terrible because it was too dark and I was too far away, but I still think they are precious. I wish I had my video camera there it was that cute to watch. Big Man and his girl were the first to come in. He walked her to her chair and didn't seem to mind or get embarrassed that there were 15 adults standing there videotaping and taking pictures!
He pulled her chair out for her and scooted her in and then handed her the napkin and sat next to her. That repeated 3 more times until all of the kids were seated.
We adults served the kids and they mostly used their proper manners (please and thank you.)
It was obvious they had been practicing and they were so proud! Isn't their jungle room so cute.
One thing I really like about this school is that they teach traditional manners where boys are always expected to open the door and escort the ladies. Big Man came home from school a couple of weeks ago and told me that he had to run an errand for the teacher with one of the girls in his class. He was telling me that it was his job as the boy to protect her and make sure nothing happened! I thought it was so cute. I think our society is severely lacking in Gentleman and I hope that my boys will be Gentleman and take care of their ladies:)

I'm pretty sure that is the cutest thing I have ever heard about! I LOVE that idea!!! And I agree with you - more manners should definitely be taught!
