This week was huge for you! When you came home from school on Tuesday, you explained to Mommy and me that you had decided to run for Student Council for your 4th grade class. One boy and one girl would be elected by your own classmates, based on the speech you would write and then present.
You were completely confident as I walked you to school the next day; as I had you practice your speech one last time.
When you came home that afternoon, you immediately announced, “I won! They voted for me and I got the most votes!”
For this past week, we have stumbled into a new tradition in which you and your brother work on Legos while dinner is being prepared. As your brother labors over complex mechanical creatures, you just work with a handful of pieces.
Typically, it’s 2 or 3 Lego people and only enough pieces to build a small living room.
I’ll hear you do a falsetto mutter, which is apparently them talking to each other.
It is as if you are playing house, with Legos. You can spend an hour playing with just about a dozen blocks- and you’re happy!
