Today, Eli used Mama's camera to take pictures while we were at the park. After awhile he said that he was good at taking pictures.
Eli: "I want to be a picture taker when I grow up."
Mama: "Oh great. You want to be a photographer. That's a fun job!"
Eli: "Yeah, but I want to be a paleontologist too. So you know what I am going to do? I am going to take pictures of dinosaur bones!"
A new porch
On a walk in a different neighborhood, Mama sees a house she loves -- mainly because of its wraparound porch.
Mama: "Oh Eli, I love this house. Look at that porch!"
Eli: "We have a porch."
Mama: "No, we have a patio and a deck in the backyard, but we don't have a porch."
Eli, very serious: "OK Mama. How about this? Daddy and I go to the basement and get tools and then we build you a porch?"
Mama: "I would like that very much Eli."
Eli: "For real, Mama. How about we do that for real?"
While dancing in the living room with Mama and Eli, Ewan sits down to take his socks off.
Eli: "Yeah, take your socks off Ewan. You can just wear your skin! See, I'm wearing my skin!"
Learning is fun!
Eli, jumping up and down in the kitchen: "Mama, Mama, guess what I learned today?"
Mama, laughing: "What?"
Eli: "I learned that the sun is a STAR! It is the closest star to us. Can you believe that?!?"
