It's been happening at warp speed around here. Schooling, working, messes, science projects, playing, stomach viruses, coaching, field trips, singing, reading, nature walks, resting, memorizing, re-evaluating, learning, growing, forgiving, trying to embrace it all and be grateful.

Max has his own special way of saying words that we find pretty adorable. Although I am working with him on saying his "L's" and "P's", it's still so cute when he says them incorrectly. Here are a few vocabulary words we have noticed him saying lately:
Shefferds: guys that take care of sheep and went to see baby Jesus.
Mono Polly: although it sounds like a cruel playground nickname that some girl named Polly had to endure when she missed school because she had the kissing disease, these words actually describe a board game in which one tries to take the other player's money. I have no idea how Max knows about this game because we do not own it nor has he ever played it.
Menja: a Japanese assassin.
Baby Winestein: Max's favorite movies named after the famous genius who derived the equation E=MC^2.
Coffing: when someone mimics another person, as in "quit coffing me."
Noah's Ark: a small town in Alabama between Troy and Dothan, also known as Ozark.
Moat-zark: a composer from Austria that Max LOVES listening to in the car.
