Mexicans are special people

Last Monday, Jonathan presented his project to the class at school. The project was to take a clothespin (the story they read was Molly's Pilgrim) and dress it up according to their heritage. It was a project I could help out with, so I was hoping he'd pick his Mexican side to 'represent', lol. I asked him if he wanted to take a German or Mexican doll. I have to say I breathed a sigh of relief when he said he wanted to do a Mexican clothespin since I would have had no idea how to dress up a German doll. I'm not even sure Neil would have known what to do exactly. Fortunately, we were able to find lots of brightly colored doodads to make his clothespin festive, right down to the sombrero with the sequins. He ended up with a 100, or 20/20 in all five categories, presentation, doll, written sentences, punctuation and overall project.

In a conversation with his Uncle Chris, Jonathan mentioned that Mexicans are special people, so I decided to use it as the title. :)
