Heading back to school is a big deal when you’re 5 years old. Bear is counting down the days to when she gets to see her friends again (you know, the most important part of school to a kindergartener).

But this back to school season is different this time around. Little Man is heading to school with her, starting preschool next month [big, huge crocodile mom tears].

Before the school years starts, I sat down with both of them to see what their goals are for this school year. Their answers, in true form, cracked me up.

While these answers are silly, they provided insight into what is going on in their growing minds – favorite colors, foods, characters, activities, and more!
