Greg and Chris, 
I had to tell you about our trip to the SCA film fest today. I sat next to one of my students from last year (current 1st grader). Just as the lights went down he said, "There are 2 exits, I don't know which one to use." He was calm, and I knew he was referring to the lessons you have done this year. I replied, "Hopefully we don't need to, but great job noticing where they are. When we are done we will go back out the exit we came in." WOW! it is really cool all of the powerful lessons you have added this year, simple, yet effective. 
This student also happens to have autism, which may make it even more profound that he made this connection. You gave him the power to be matter of fact and calm, but know his surroundings. 
My own kids were having this discussion at LOWES last week. My kindergartener had your lesson, and my 4 year old is now benefiting from her knowledge. Thanks for all you do in helping empower our littlest ones for the rest of their lives. It is working!
