Since early March Cannon has been anxiously counting down the days until his birthday -- in June. Everyday he changes his mind about what he hopes to receive. It is always something from the Lego catalog. Today at breakfast (a nutritious GoGurt) he decided that he wants these two Star Wars themed Lego sets.
Yesterday it was the pirate ship for half the day and then back to Star Wars. When this began he was set, for a few days, on the cargo ship. We have not made an official countdown calendar, but it might be time now that we're only about 2 months away from the happy date which is also the last day of school. I think this all began when he went to his friend's birthday party in February and he realized that he too would be turning 6 this year. He has also made several different plans for the party theme and the activities that we will be doing. Such high hopes and dreams for the perfect day.
