What I want to be when I grow up.
A few weeks ago the area classes of 2020 (Kindergarten) had a project given to them. They had to answer two questions: What do you want to be when you grow up? and What will you need to do the job? They were then to draw a picture about it.
The above picture is Kristofer's! He answered, "I want to be a fireman!" (like his Uncle Bryan but he didnt write that, he just said it) He then went on to list everything he would need; a firetruck, a hose, a hat, boots and jacket, and a ladder. Oh his list was much longer but he didn't want to write it all out and that was part of the project.
Those that participated were then published in a local paper. One child's picture from each class was published. Each participating class was also photographed and placed in the newspaper as well. We are so proud of Kristofer that he wanted to participate. It was optional but he had fun doing it.
No matter what we trust the Lord has big plans for Kristofer. What is interesting is he is fascinated by fire. We have to hide the matches and watch him closely if we have candles lit. He likes to burn paper and blow the matches out. A bit scary for us because he just doesn't get that fire burns skin as well. It doesn't matter how much we tell him it will hurt he comes back with "No it won't!"
