Boogs discovered the awesomeness of Calvin & Hobbes last month. He even made his own Transmogrifier, you can read about it HERE. This week, I gave Boogs The Authoritative Calvin & Hobbes Treasury by Bill Watterson. Boogs immediately stopped everything else he was doing so he could start reading this book. As soon as Boogs got out of bed the next morning, he told me I had to listen to what he found in this book.
I immediately jumped in my upside down stool time machine, kicked it into hyperspace drive and rescued Boogs.
We had to prepare for our mission. We needed extra food supplies (lollipops), protective gear, and we had to replace our broken power grid with one of the new ones that had fallen through the rip in time and space.
After our mission was complete, Boogs decided that we needed to make some box pets to keep us company on our adventures. We looked through our recycles for art stash and found two boxes to use. Boogs started designing his pet and wanted to put wings on it. He asked me to cut out the wings because he could not think of how they should look. I told him to simply put some scissors and paper behind his back and cut without looking to come up with a completely original design. He loved that idea!
We took a break from time travel for a late lunch around 2 p.m. Of course, I had to make a Calvin & Hobbes time travel lunch. In the ELB: Calvin & Hobbes drawn on cheese inside a salami sandwich, Time Machine cheese cutout letters, berries, broccoli, carrots, and cottage cheese. Boogs stated the the last Calvin & Hobbes lunch looked a little bit better than this one.
When Boogs came inside about two hours later, the first words out of his mouth were, "Momma, let's get ready to blast into the future!"
Just two months ago, Boogs was reluctant to read independently. Now, he wakes up early so he can read and re-read his Calvin & Hobbes books. Thank you Bill Watterson for creating such engaging comic strip characters! Boogs wants to take the pictures from today's adventure and make a comic strip of his own from them.
