Kenny is one in a million. He’s the most polite child I have ever met, always asking with “please” and saying “thank you.” He even pulls my chair out and says, “Here, teacher! Sit please!” I’m really going to miss my class, and Kenny’s humor. He loves Harry Potter and Narnia (hence him saying “Tumnus” at the end of the following video), and today was trying to tell the class the whole screenplay from Narnia.
This video is from play time, and I should preface this by saying my kids have always talked about my beard. Andy drew a picture of my face with a face in my beard. They act like they have beards often. I enjoy it. I tell them, “Someday, you might grow a beard too!” and they smile a lot. So do I. I encourage great beardery.
I call Kenny “Pai Mei” in this video, the character from Kill Bill, who trains Bill’s assassins; however, he doesn’t know who this “Pai Mei” is, so he’s just “a Santa Claus!”
