This year Alan gave his Easter eggs names and their own story. The green one (with a face) is a villain, because as Alan says, “every story must have a villain.” The other eggs are the good guys. 🙂

Alan’s Busy Week
This week Alan did the following:
Built a wooden airplane (below) with highschoolers visiting Millridge on Monday.
Went to a real voting site for the Ohio Primary – and asked great questions about voting – on Tuesday.
Had me read all of his favorite books before bed on Wednesday.
Celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at school on Thursday.
Did an early easter egg hunt at Grandma Debbie’s house on Friday.
Made a bird feeder (below) and attended Chinese class and martial arts (where he also won this race) on Saturday.
Had a playdate with Joshua from preschool on Sunday.
What a great week!
Favorite Bedtime Stories
Recently Alan shared some of his recurring dreams with me.
One involved him driving Mommy’s Nissan on his own (Note: Alan’s no stranger to driving, as evidenced here).
Another was based on the Disney Junior show PJ Masks. Alan, along with his friends from preschool Ella and Joshua, who take on the roles of Gecko, Owelette, and Catboy everyday at recess, were busy conquering villains like Luna Girl.
But the most unique dream he shared involved Alan and I as firefighters. The two of us were at Mickey Mouse’s Clubhouse with Mickey and Jake (from Jake and the Neverland Pirates), when a fire alarm went off. Alan and I then took Mickey’s train to the fire and put it out. 🙂
