I took Gordon to the dentist today.  When he got in the car, Gordon said, "When it was winter, I really missed the sky!"

We went swimming yesterday and Gordon said, "Mom.  When you see my tummy, you will see that there is something that doesn't look like skin on it.  It is bumpy.  It is a scab but it is part of my skin." Turns out his friend had scratched him last time we went swimming with them and it was much deeper than I had thought.


I went on a walk with just Ellis tonight.  I was talking to him about school and what he was excited for.  He got really quiet and said, "What if my teacher speaks Spanish to me and I can't understand what she says? I am worried about that."  He has been so excited about this whole dual immersion class, I didn't know he had any misgivings about it.


We were at the Drive-In Movie last night and Ellis came limping over to me.  He crawled onto my lap, pointed at his leg and said, "Mom.  This leg is going to grow tonight.  It is hurting for no reason."  I felt so bad for him.  I didn't have any Tylenol with me and he quietly cried on the way home until he fell asleep.
