The other night I told Finn that he should change his nickname from “Finnster Malone Big Apple Bagel” to “inFINNity” and sign his name with the infinity symbol. I described how to draw the symbol. He grabbed a pen and paper and drew it. Then he expanded on the drawing and said, “If I draw these lines, then it looks like DNA.”
Here is the drawing:
I asked him where he learned what DNA looks like. He said, “From a TV show.” At least he is learning more than just how to get a girl when you are a teenager.
"Do you ever get the feeling that you want to tell everyone in the whole world that you love them? I usually feel like that - kind of all soft in the tummy like milk."

- eat more kace

After we finished watching Holes tonight, Finn announced that it is his favorite movie...even better than Star Wars. He then pronounced the following hierarchy of quality motion pictures:
- Star Wars
- Milo and Otis
- Toy Story 2
Finn's class is singing "You're a Grand Old Flag" in the upcoming Carpenter Street School talent show, and Lisa will accompany them on piano. Yesterday Lisa was practicing, and Finn joined in singing.
Here is the video:
Today was my first day of kindergarten. My teacher's name is Mrs. Ribble. Some of my friends in my class are Parker, Jeffrey, and Jacob. Today I played outside, went on a tour around the school, and got to draw a picture of me. For lunch I had a peanut butter and jelly pack, a Capri Sun, and strawberries.
