future dreams

It's always the little things, isn't it?

Yonah presented me with a picture today.

He had drawn it, just for me. This in itself was noteworthy, as usually his pictures are drawn for someone else much more interesting than Mom.

But today's picture was also the very first that has ever been recognizable as what he had intended to draw.

Can you guess what it is?

Do you remember our previous conversation about going to the moon?

The other night, out of the blue, he said,

"Someday we're going to do the training to go to the moon, Mom."

I told him some such about how he could definitely find himself on the moon someday, if he worked hard. But also how the likelihood of me ever being on the moon was very, very small.

He was troubled by this. He thought that meant he'd have to go all alone. But when I explained that he'd probably have a team with him, he decided that was okay.

Going to space has been a big theme of his play since that night.
