Here he's perched on a little ledge by the front doors to the Little School Woods Building. When he's not practicing his ukulele skills in the 15 minutes or so after the doors open and before school starts, he sometimes sits here and watches the kids mill around, waiting for classroom doors to open.
The poster behind him is a list the classes came up with a few years ago that attempts to prevent some of the conflict over fort-building and use in the woods around the classroom building. If those rules were followed, I'm sure all would be smooth sailing!
Niall watched with me, though he was not very interested. We usually watch a couple of sitcoms on Netflix before bed (currently one episode each of Frasier and Cheers) but last night we watched a movie from the library (the "Star Trek" movie that came out a few years ago about young Kirk, Spock, McCoy, etc.). So two exceptions in a row! I'm sure he'll be glad to get back to the routine tomorrow night.
For me, I was just delighted to finally get my fix of Downtown Abbey!
Mom's favorite fast food is no fast food, so I usually just make a sandwich for myself at home or heat up leftovers unless we're eating on the run.

He's hopeful that we'll find another like it at a party store, but isn't yet convinced that anything will be quite as "just right." Poor guy. Life can come apart at the seams so quickly sometimes, bouncing from unexpected joy to devastation in an instant. Perhaps adding an ancient, brittle plastic sword to the mix was tempting fate a little too much this time.
