Heard Around Here Lately....

Last night James decided he was going travel around the world

He packed a grocery sack full of the things he thought he would need.  He even packed paper clips because he heard that they were good for trading.  Apparently in India the folks will trade you a bar of gold for one paper clip.  Who knew that paper clips were in such demand in India?

He kissed me goodbye and started out the door at 7:30 pm.  He was outside for I don't know, maybe two minutes, when he came back in and said that his flight had been cancelled due to bad weather.

He hoped that the weather would be better the next morning.  (And I have a feeling the sun shining will make a difference in the "flight schedule" also.)

He got busy playing Legos and later he came to me and said,

"Mom, will you remind me to travel around the world in the morning?"

You know, just in case it slipped his mind.

Love that kid.
