We spent the morning reading about Martin Luther King Jr., watching his “I Have a Dream Speech,” looking at Norman Rockwell paintings . . . and cutting out paper dolls. Our homeschool would just not be complete without paper dolls.
Wallace finds a bag of gummy bears. He has no idea that they are edible. They become his favorite toy for days. He calls them “my boogers,” lines them up, sorts them, and puts them to sleep in a drawer. As soon as he wakes up in the morning, he asks, “Where are my boogers?”
Thank you, Mr. Turkey, for giving your life for us.
For nourishing our family.
Centerpiece for the mouse family Thanksgiving feast tomorrow.
Happy Thanksgiving, Tout le Monde!

Wallace was surrounded by so much love on his birthday. It was so life affirming to spend the evening with family and friends and celebrate this little boy’s vibrant being.
Wallace is obsessed with our neighbor Mike’s grill. For his birthday, Mike and Paula made a mini version for Wallace! Such delight!
