someone is totally bummed to be done with fourth grade.
he thought he was being too clever by half by selecting a pattern with lots of white because it meant he didn’t have to fill it in and it’d be less work. he later found out that he, in fact, had to fill in the areas with white thread
odin catches sight of me in the crowd while watching the kids arrive for may day festivities. i love that he’s genuinely happy to see me
i was futzing with the lens and almost missed what is now one of my favorite photos of odin.
he’s standing in the center monologuing! the whole class did a great job in their school play. very proud of them all! while odin isn’t shy standing up in front of a crowd hasn’t been one of his strengths. doubly proud of him for doing in and projecting his voice.
odin in his garb. not quite as impressive without the eye patch ( d’oh! forgot to have him put it on ) but a great costume nonetheless!
odin’s class play, wherein he plays odin and his friend freya plays freyja. i’m going to guess that’s A Very Rare Thing. maybe it’s never, ever happened in the history of plays based on norse mythology.
odin is in the front row playing cello just right of center. don’t tell anyone I broke the “no photos or video” rule
happy that i made it back from atlanta in time to watch the concert with 15 minutes to spare!
odin made these dolls in his handwork class last year. it continues to be one of his favorite classes. i think nurturing the idea that you can create things with your own hands is A Good Thing.
