Ethan and Gavin earn quarters around the house for helping clean up from time to time. Last week Ethan had saved up some of his money and had earned a little extra for listening to the coach and playing well in his little league game, so we decided to take a trip to his favorite place, Wal-mart's toy section.
For 15 minutes he scanned the rows and rows of toys and finally chose a new Star Wars "Galactic Heroes" set to go with the small army of them that he's already collected. He showed me which set he wanted. Before I looked at it, I knew it would be a Jedi or maybe a Storm Trooper with a big gun. He usually chooses his action figures by who has the best weapons. Nope. Here's the set he chose.
He says he picked it because this R2D2 (with drink serving tray) will fit in his x-wing fighter. But somehow I doubt that's totally true. I saw "Return of the Jedi" when I was 10. I liked the "Slave Leia" scene too, but it wasn't because of R2D2.
Still, I think my response is "Ethan, You have chosen... wisely."
