We have first days in common: Ben & Marigold. A U.S. citizen and a Kindergartener with more in common than we think.
I became an American citizen today. So, I thought I’d do the most American thing I could think of, which is have a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder. I remember when McDonald’s first came to my hometown in England. An American fast food chain coming to a small English town was a huge deal. Before, you’d just eat at pubs or cafes, there was no fast food, so when we finally got a McDonald’s it was pretty magical.

It was my first day of kindergarten today. But my dad and I always come to McDonald's on Tuesdays because my mom works late. My favorite thing is the ketchup dispenser. My dad always gets his own and I like getting my own. I'm not very good at it, but I practice every time I come in and I'm getting better and better at it. We have show-and-tell next week and I'm going to bring in my blue bunny.
