What does a 5 year-old that's supposed to be napping do?
Apparently what happened here was that "the soldiers were protecting the pumpkin from being bombed by the pirate with the pet dinosaur. They have a getaway car that is gassed up and ready to go! And you know what else Mom? The MIGHT stop for ice cream if the can spend those gold coins in Thailand!"
And in other news...the 8 year-old boy genius brought home 2 certificates from his award ceremony this week. He received the award for "Best All Around" and the "Accelerated Reader" award. YEAH Silas! I am SO proud of you little man! Excuse me, big boy!
