I'm afraid that it's a short post today, everyone's caught a minor cold.
Well, everyone but me has caught I minor cold; I feel like I've been smashed by a giant hammer.
Any case, Makoto, since his Sports Day has taken to coloring flags. The kids at his school had colored all the flags of the world for the event and Makoto liked it so much, this has been his new evening project.
First we did the big one, the Stars and Stripes. Excepting having a minor difficulty with the concept of alternating red and white stripes, he didn't do too badly.
Makoto: Mommy, what colors are the Korean flag?
Beloved: Blue, white, red, and black.
Makoto: I can't find my black crayon... What flag is red, white, and blue like America's?
Makoto: (In English) Daddy, I want to color the France flag tomorrow, ok?!
Tomorrow, since he still has some red crayon left, we're tackling the flag of Japan.
