For the past several months Winfield has been toting around his stuffed fox, James. James follows Win pretty much everywhere. At meals he gets a bite. When Win reads James sits so that he can see the pages and read too. One time Win read without James. Later I saw Win flipping thorough the pages and sticking James’s nose in each page. I asked Win what he was doing. He explained, “James is catching up.” James has gained some friends, Snowey the white tiger and Splash the red-tailed hawk. They stick together and follow Win around.
This morning Win was working on his homeschool but his entourage was not with him. I found them all in the dining room playing homemade pan flutes.
