Career choice

It is warm, we had three days in a row of over a 100 degrees. For the last three days the children at our school had to eat inside because of it. Tomorrow the forecast says it will be cooler (oh, we will hit 98 instead of 110)
It was a very event full week, with lots of kindergartners who all want to go home. Luckily at the end of the week there was some settling down, and we even got smiles from the little boy who could not stop crying for the first three days. (victory)
T also had a busy week at school and is getting used to the "back-to-school" routine. Homework is being made without any complaints and the 20 minute reading every day is no problem at all (most of the time)
He came home and made an announcement on Wednesday that he wants to be a Scientist when he is growing up. No news for us, but then today he was serious in changing careers all of a sudden.
Tonight he wanted to know if there is such a thing as a school for comedians, because there lies his passion (his words, not mine).
He likes the idea of doing stand-up comedy..............................(yeah)
Could work, in first grade he got the "funniest kid" award, in second grade he got the "wittiest classmate" award, In third grade his teacher said that he could make remarks that where so funny he had the whole class laughing.
His fourth grade teacher found his humor "refreshing".
Time will tell what his profession is going to be, all we are asking that he is happy, scientist or comedian.

Meanwhile I am knitting a "votter" or mitten, on size 0 needles, it does not go very fast but I really like the result! And I get a head start on Christmas knitting!!!
