i quizzed oliver a little during the consumption of our taco bowls, to check for flukiness. i said, "oliver, B-R-E-A-D. what is that?" and i think he kind of smiled. and brian said, "hey oliver, do you like to eat B-R-E-A-D?" which is totally cheating. and i think oliver said, "yes." and brian said, "do you like to drink M-I-L-K?" more cheating. and he said, "yes." and i said, "do you like to drink W-A-T-E-R? what is that?" and he said, "milk." and i figured art camp for at least part-fluke. though still an impressive fluke. especially since he had done the same thing the other day when i was talking about violet's B-O-T-T-L-E.
and then, the united states had been sitting in this bowl and i suggested to oliver that he should arrange them back in their puzzle and he did and he noted that there was a state missing and i noted it was south dakota and offered that perhaps it had gone to live with california. oliver said something about green.
just now, after everyone had been tucked in, i walked by the couch and found south dakota under the ottoman. and it was blue.
just kidding. it was green, but i figured you saw that one coming.
he's also coming along in his math skills. 10X10. 2+2. he says he's going to live with us forever.
