Ethan and Tomatos

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.
