Best story of the week? Month? Year? And I’m just talking about the parents! Get a load of this:
Sept 8, 2015:
Two five-year-old Russian boys used spades to dig their way out of their kindergarten and set off on a mission to buy a Jaguar sports car, Komsomolskaya Pravda daily reported Tuesday.
The two boys disappeared as their group took part in a supervised walk in the grounds of the kindergarten in the city of Magnitogorsk in the Urals region, the tabloid reported.
Chelyabinsk regional interior ministry confirmed the boys’ escape from kindergarten to AFP.
“We don’t have any details yet, we can only confirm the fact itself,” a spokesman told AFP, adding that the incident took place several days ago.
After reaching freedom, the boys walked two kilometres to a car showroom selling luxury cars.
A female driver noticed the unaccompanied children and asked them what they were doing. They told her they had come from their kindergarten to buy a Jaguar but did not have any money.
The boys had planned their escape for a couple of days, which only goes to prove the point the point we were talking about just last week: Young kids don’t need to study “academic” subjects. Allow them to explore and they will learn far more than we could ever teach them!
And here’s the bit about the parents: Last heard they were not threatening the kindergarten with any kind of action. They get it: Tunnels happen!
