Journey of the Mayflower...
This week I'm the joy school mom and so in light of the up-coming week we took a journey on the Mayflower...Pilgrim Poppy decided to try on her mommy's bonnet and Oscar today took a little journey of his own. He frequently re-arranges the household furniture to facilitate his journey on various boats.
After checking out a book called "Peggony-Po: A Whale of a Tale" (the book was a about a little wooden boy who captures this whale called Cetus. The Whale had eaten the leg of his dad, the carver who created him.) Oscar told me that he wouldn't be afraid of whales and when he gets big and rides them he will be able to catch lots of them.
This is a boy who LOVES the ocean! Every night he has me sing him a song about our dog smiley running to the ocean and we drive there and find him and then we camp for four days on the beach and then we drive home and the next time we go back in a helicopter and we jump from the helicopter onto the beach and then we camp for four more months and then we drive home and smiley wants to come with us! ( I know this is a run-on but for real Oscar telling effect read it as though it is all one big sentence or song!) Then make up a tune to it. This is how a typical day goes for our son the boy who likes to check out into imaginary world!
One last thing before I go. The Picture of him in his sweater and PJ's was this morning. We found him checking out his dad's tileing work and when we asked why he had a sweater on he said "I was cold" this wouldn't be so funny but his pj's were the super warm type and we figured out that he put them on last night when he got up to play in his room without our knowledge!
What a fun little boy full of imagination and wonder!
For the next post you can look forward to hearing about Oscar and smiley's debut at the stake talent show tomorrow night. Oscar with the Accordion and smiley with the HOWL!
