A Friend

Last weekend Mikan had his first non-family play date.  He found a friend at school that likes states and planets as much as he does.  

The moment I knew they were going to be best friends:
Mikan holds up a piece of a 2x4 that John had cut up to use as building blocks.  Mikan had drawn Uranus on the block with pen.
Mikan: What is this?
Friend (looking at the block): South Dakota!
Mikan: No, it's Uranus

The rest of the world thinking: No, it's a piece of wood.

So Mikan isn't the only one that sees states in everything.  We are still searching for a career path where he can make use of this skill.

Pictures from this week.  Mikan's planet obsession continues...

He has moved past just learning about the planets and has shown an interest in stars and galaxies.  Pictured above you'll find VY Canis Majoris, Sirius, the Milky Way Galaxy, and the Sting Ray Nebula.
