Henry went right up to these kids and asked to join in their cooking game. I always love watching him play with other kids, especially when he is so polite. And he seems not to realize the age difference or the culture difference - all he sees is playmates. What an awesome little guy he is.
Parted ways with my Subaru today. It was my first car out of college and it saw me through many jobs, apartments, vacations, family changes and snow storms. It was hard to hand over the keys, but at least I know the new owner appreciates her. He'll be taking her to New Mexico on his journey for sustainable living, which involves constructing an adobe hut. I think they'll be very happy together.
Henry got to hang out at our office after school today for a little while and was thrilled at the chance to drink water out of an actual mug. A real mug! He took a sip and pronounced, rather proudly, "I'm a big boy!" He certainly is.
