My favorite moment of the Halloween party technically came afterward, when the remaining kids were all running around outside and the remaining parents were relaxing.

Alex and her friend Benji came in and strode over to the bookshelf.

"Let's look in the dictionary," I heard her say. "We'll check in the I's."

"Alex, what are you doing?"

She looked up from the page that she and Benji were studying. Both of their faces were serious and intent. "I say it's invulnerable, but Benji says it's invincible."

...So they looked it up. I love so much that Alex has found friends like herself.

One of my favorite memories is of W and E huddled together over a giant book called Gravitation, looking up and reciting the same sentence to each other, and laughing. Nerdy book interaction forever!

Probably more accurate to say that it could have been either. They each just needed to clarify what they meant. (They were playing superheroes.)

That is so amazingly nifty...and the fact they WENT TO A BOOK to do it. How many kids would just ask mum or dad or go look it up on the internet???
