Honest Abe

This was our conversation after school today.

Erin: Mommy, do you know who's picture is on a penny?
Me: (acting as if I didn't know) No, who?
Erin: It's Abraham Lincoln. I can't believe you didn't know that.
Me: Wow. Thank you for teaching me that.
Erin: And do you know what his nickname is?
Me: No, what is it, honey?
Erin: It's Honest Abe. Honest means telling the truth.
Me: That's right. Good job learning at school today.

I am so pleased with the education that Erin is receiving at her school, and she comes home so excited to share the knowledge every day.
