For the past year I have been collecting and purchasing picture frames to create a wall of history in our upstairs hallway. I have some wonderful old photos from both sides of the family and thought it would be fun to line the upstairs walls with them starting with the oldest photos and ending with a picture of our family.
Recent events have led me to believe I have more time to prepare this project than I had thought.
Garrett is now in the 2nd grade. He has the same teacher that Samantha had. We went to open house and guess what Garrett showed me first? His GIANT long neck. Which is what we call them at our house being big fans of the Land Before Time movies.
"I hope I win it!" He announced excitedly. "Yeah, um, me to" I said with as much enthusiasm as I could muster. What in the heck would I do with this thing? It was at least 7 feet long. He had made it bigger than his sisters! "Oh, well, I thought. They really did do a great job on it and we can always hang it from the ceiling in his room".
The next day while waiting outside the school I see Garrett walking out. Carrying his seven foot dinosaur. He had the biggest smile on his face! "I won the drawing!". "Great!" I say. "He will look awesome hanging in your room". "My room? We always hang our dinosaurs in the hallway!"
I could not win this argument. Nor would I really want to. My wall of history will just have to wait. We have a long neck coming for a visit.
Here he is in all his glory.
Garrett is so proud!
