Another Ethan first: He jettisoned bunny.

Wednesday evening, the church gathered to sing and listen to Christmas songs. At one point, the children went up from where the congregation was sitting to sing some songs they’d worked on. Ethan was among the youngest. During the second song, he realized something else different: he was the only one carrying something—his bunny. It wasn’t goodbye forever, but for that moment, bunny was tossed aside.

Another Ethan first: He designed a snowplow.

When Ethan asked me to tie his shovel to the front of his tricycle, I was hesitant, thinking it would be too loose to be useful. He was confident in the idea, however, so I assembled his snowplow. He ended up using it to help me clear the driveway all winter long.
