A great learning opportunity for Ethan happened last week. On one of his daily adventures in the neighborhood with Danny (his BFF) they decided to begin smashing tomatoes in a yard behind us. Obviously, this was a poor choice! Mr. Johnson was upset and he let us know it! Ethan is in the process of learning how to have fun WITHOUT being destructive, but it is a hard lesson for him to learn and definitely counter-cultural. The lesson was obviously for me in humility and the nail was driven in when Mr. Johnson brought me a bag of his beautiful tomatoes to enjoy. He forgave Ethan and showed me what being a neighbor is all about.
