Today, we had to drive an hour and half away find a pair of gold shorts for Caitlin's dance routine. She had a pair but lost them at the last competition.
James had to be dragged around with us and was very well behaved. He entertained us from the back seat.
First, he decided to make a paper airplane. I don't have a picture of it, but it looked a little like this:
Remember he is only 5.
Then, he said, "Now what is it?"Can you see it??? No?? It's a shark.
Finally, he showed me this:
Do you see it? Give a guess. It's a saw.
Later as we were winding our ways down the country roads, we encountered the usual dead skunk. We usually hold our breath until we think it is safe, but James came up with another solution. He hummed. Every time we came across a skunk he hummed. He hums one long note. Try it. Find an onion or something malodorous and hum while it is in front of your nose. See if you can smell it. I bet you can't because humming require that you exhale.
