Holden v. 5.0
I thought it'd be memorable to have Holden author and illustrate a book for his goodie bags. We conjured the story by me giving him a line, and he'd brainstorm the next, until we had "The Good Monster." I'll post the story in the next entry.
Holden loves hearts, so I asked him to draw a few. I sewed double-layers of hearts together with navy thread, and label taped out names, and hot-glued pins.
Strawberry cupcakes with strawberry frosting, per H's request. Ms. Nel, his teacher, receives a puffy heart.
Having the kids sit outside to consume the strawberry-Oreo topped cupcakes was pretty genius of Ms. Nel. Dropped pastries, frosting-side down? Just a swipe of a napkin and we're golden.
Hearts on hearts.
I love grandparents' expressions.
I can't believe my baby is now five. Happy 5th Year, Precious Son.
