Up, up and away

There's a new display up on the main bulletin board at the entrance to Evan's school this week, a travel-themed project put together by his class. Each child created and decorated a paper mache hot air balloon and a little woven paper basket to go beneath it. A small stuffed bear (selected because his class is called the Bears, of course) sits in each basket, alongside a cloud which says where the bear is headed.

Darling, no? This is a classic example of the cute, creative art projects his teachers dream up; just one of about a gazillion things I'll miss about this school next year. The display was adorable and probably enough, given my current fragile state, to make me prematurely nostalgic in and of itself. But it was what Evan had chosen to write on his cloud that actually made me suspiciously misty eyed:

Damn straight, kiddo. But perhaps the journey would be a bit less onerous if we just took a plane?

Wow. It's a magical faraway land to him. (To me, too, now I think about it.)

What a sweet end-of-the-year project for the class. But I agree with you, Rebecca - even coach would be better than a hot air balloon!
