Dr. Seuss, airplanes, and general silliness

As some of you may know, I have an extreme love of Dr. Seuss. That guy rocks, even if he did pretend to be a doctor. In celebration of the imposter's birthday, Emily's class had a special month of reading his books and doing super cool activities, including donning funny hats and eating Green Eggs and Ham. I squelched my urge to call her teacher and offer to take over these celebrations, and instead, enjoyed the stories and artifacts from these fun filled days, as told by my ecstatic daughter.

Doesn't that look like fun?

The excitement continued with a visit from some adoring grandparents (Grampa and Sue) who brought Ethan some cool presents for his birthday. I had let them know that he has a growing adoration for things that fly, and that he was kinda rough on his toys ("kinda" does not really belong in that sentence, let's face it, the kid makes King Kong look like a gentle giant), so they brought him a giant hair pain (I mean airplane) that had the words "Virtually Indestructable" printed on the package. So, off we went to fly the hair pain:

That is his "This is MINE, do not even try it" look. Can you tell he liked it?

This week was also punctuated by a bunch of random silliness, including Emily pretending to have big teeth:

And catching Ethan red-handed pretending to be flown around in the sky by a paper kite:

Oh, to be a kid again!
