Today we learned the famous story of George Washington and the cherry tree. I am such a sap for these deeply patriotic stories of our founding fathers. I almost get weepy. So I told the story with great gusto, emphasizing all the areas that I planned to use for character training, i.e. honesty, etc. When I was finished, and ready for the application part of the lesson, I waited eagerly for Cameron to narrate back to me the key parts of the story. Instead, I heard,
"Mommy, when I get older, will you buy me a hatchet like that?"
Talk about being brought down from your high horse. I'm so proud.
