Chinese New Year

This afternoon, Avery showed me how to make a Chinese lantern like the red one he’d made in school that day. He told me he was born in the Year of the Rabbit, and wrinkled up faced and kind of harumphed, “I wanted to be a dragon” 😦
He asked me what sign I was – a rat. The look on his face made me think he’d decided his sign could have been worse. From there, he wanted to to learn how to write the Chinese characters for all of his favorite signs, so we looked things up on the laptop, he wrote out the characters, and we practiced saying the words in Chinese (because the computer pronounced it first).
