Last week Ethan’s school to and fro book mentioned that they had taken the children to purchase pumpkins. They also carved them in class. I love that Ethan got the chance to take part in this activity at school with his school friends. I have always said his learning at school is more about the experiences they can provide. On Friday Ethan came home from school with his pumpkin. It was a Minion Pumpkin!
Ethan was very excited about his pumpkin and babbled away trying to tell us all about it. We can only assume that Ethan helped to paint his pumpkin yellow, whist his TA’s made the eyes and added the other details. His motor skills aren’t ready to paint straight lines like that.
Ethan loved his Minion pumpkin, he helped him change the channels on the Skybox…
and he sat on the sofa with him to watch TV on Friday evening and Saturday morning.
It made us feel like we had our very own version of Wilson from the movie Cast Away!
Unfortunately the affection Ethan showed his Minion Pumpkin meant that he didn’t last for very long. It was lovely to see Ethan become so attached to something. He has never really shown an interest like that before. He has had his obsessions but not an attachment. We will never forget Ethan’s Minion pumpkin.
