We got through the homework just fine. Eric is really enjoying math--addition in kindergarten blows me away as well as "sight words" for a six year-old is really quite something to me. But then again I may not be up to date on where kids should be educationally, but it still seems amazing to me and not just as the parent of a little boy who is doing addition and adding to his vocabulary.
And so we played Legos Star Wars on the Wii for about an hour. Eric is finally getting the hang of what it means to play these games and not just what he conceives as the goal of playing those games. So we were both happy as we played and enjoyed working together on the quests set before us by the Wii.
We also enjoyed a wonderful gathering of "Cooks Night Out"; a group of two-dozen or so church folks who gather once a month or so at local restaurants. We had a delightful dinner at a local Italian establishment. And throughout the two hour dinner and fellowship time Eric did a beautiful job of interacting with Jack Miller, Al Smutny and others. He really was the perfect little gentleman and so when we came home, no matter how tired I was feeling at the time we once again donned the Legos Star Wars personalities that we selected and fought the good fight for "the force".
All in all it really was quite a good day, even though we both dearly miss our wonderful and caring mother and wife--Kathy.
