Vaughn doesn’t get too much air time on this blog, lately, but he’s an amazing, interesting, complex kid.
He’s reading… not just words, but BOOKS. He’s reading English voraciously, French daily (with a beautiful French accent). He does his math homework incredibly quickly-yet-correctly, and easily meets any math challenge we give him, or at least has the idea of how to solve the problem. He loves science experiments, and over the summer, spent hours on the driveway with cups of water, vinegar, baking soda, cornstarch and food colouring. He makes tiny, detailed drawings, often of ships, tanks, weapons (sigh), but also of cats and people and Pokemons. He is dentally advanced (or possibly just isn’t taking care of his teeth), as he’s lost 7 teeth so far – last week alone, he lost 2. The tooth fairy is being scarily generous, and with a few more teeth out, I believe he’ll be able to buy a fairly decent used car with his earnings.
