Three on Thanksgiving

Pancakes for breakfast, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with oranges at a picnic in the park. A chocolate cake with Lemon M’s (M&Ms).

 A spatula – very important. He scrambles eggs and flips pancakes regularly - tool of the trade.

A lettuce spinner – We eat greens from the garden near daily. He has a hard time picking without pulling the plants so his job is to spin the greens after washing.

Airplanes – Anything airplane.

Tools - Real tools that he can use. He hammered and hammered away making a tree house.

William has such character. We recently read about William the Conquerer and the Battle of Hastings. He quickly realized that Duke William was not a great guy. He made sure that every time I read his name in the story, I said, "Wilhelmet" instead of William. He is sure of himself and sure that the world is at his fingertips. He is with us in whatever we are doing. Right in the middle of it – Math time, reading time, maps must be fun to sprawl across, cooking, feeding animals, writing, talking, making music, and building fires. He wants jobs and they better be important.


He did have to share his birthday with an important holiday, which is a start on sharing. We did cut his hair, but it is still awesome, especially after nap.
