Blog readers in April may remember How a Pantheist Packs an Easter Basket.
Well I had heard right away that Eric loved the basket of stuff, but last week I received this wonderful thank you card. The front of the card is the first image in this post.
In the second image, which is the interior of the card, we can see that Eric used one of the buttons in the set I gave him to make a button for ME!
Look closely at how Eric makes his "z." He isn't writing "s" because we can see in the interior of the card (second image) how he writes "s" in his note. I love seeing how children learn letters and spelling. You actually get to see the brain forming. This is a very, very verbal child (he talks beyond a junior high level and some of his questions could be Ph.D thesis topics!).

Now look closely at the two sketches he made of me. Let's ignore the wonderful way he draws arms and fingers. It makes a person look like a bird (of which of course I would approve). Look closer.
Eric drew my braids! How marvelous is that!
You can bet I'm going to be wearing this button!
