Little Elvis is officially 7! (and a day)
He's happy with his movie. It's more complex than Super America Saves the World. I'm going to have to get better with camera angles.
Little Elvis has been telling everyone he's seven for about a week. He's sweet, though very emotional. He's working on it, and I think this year we'll see a turnaround. He's still very into movies, although he's got other interests as well. He likes inventors. We got him a little book about Thomas Edison for his birthday, and found out that he shares his birthday with Thomas Edison! He was very excited about that. He also loves Captain Underpants, and anything remotely gross. He's finally talking about a friend from church. In pre-K, he talked all of the time about his best friend. But he had problems connecting with the kids in kindergarten, and first grade. It's so nice to hear him talk about a friend again. I'm hoping that next year he'll be able to make a few more. His interests just don't mesh with other kids. They aren't as into movies and production companies, or even publishing companies. Bob and I were talking about him last night, and one thing we both believe is that Little Elvis has a complete zest for life. Everything has him excited.
He has birthday money to spend, and he's had a hard time of it. We couldn't find any of the books he wants at WalMart, ToysRUs or the Goodwill Bookstore. They didn't have any technology things that interested him in his price point. I told him to try to think of things he might really want, and we'd try to find them online. He's not so sure. We'll see what I can find for him. I think he had a happy, though subdued actual birthday.
