This evening he came in with a "bouquet". I didn't know he was kidding so I put them in a vase. When someone is in first grade, it's hard to know how to take them. His sense of humor has really developed this year. I'm afraid he's going to be a trickster.
This morning he came in the house and said, "Mom, have you met our new snake?" My boys are always catching things! They have caught toads, frogs, snakes, baby muskrats, bees, worms, ants, turtles and who knows what else will appear in the future.
He is my youngest and he's growing up too fast. These days, I have to bribe him to sit in my lap. I know when I'm old and gray I'll wish that I could meet that snake in a bucket again!
