Spencer Sees His Shadow for the 1st Time

You know we parents are into saying what our child has done for the first time when in reality, these children do things and we are just noticing it for the first time.

I was thinking about that because today I took Spencer for a walk and he noticed his shadow while he was with me. Of course, when I came back into the house I bragged to Evelyn that he had seen his shadow for the first time. And maybe it's true. Maybe he really did see his shadow for the first time with me.

But isn't that the arrogant American way? Nothing was happening until we showed up. Somebody "discovered" this land though others had lived here for an undetermined period before our arrival. Just a thought.
