1. When Siim is not going around after church using the English he learned from TV (sucker! Shut up! What's up?) he's using a glove to do the Spock hand and making other people do the same hand gesture before high five-ing him. (Note: Estonians can't do the Spock hand as readily as Americans. I'm guessing they don't grow up practicing this skill as we do.)
2. I'd already talked to his mom about having him in some pictures and when I told him I needed to talk to his mom after church this last Sunday about a time, he came up, grabbed my hand, and enthusiastically dragged me to his mom, reminding me that I needed to talk to her. Enthusiastic would be the perfect word to describe this kid actually. That or clown.

4. In another conversation with his mom, I was telling her how the more I've watched kids the more I think how much fun it would be to have a little clan of all boys (she has 3 boys and no girls). Only catching part of this, he turned to me and goes "Only one boy! I'm your favorite boy!". I don't think he's wrong either. This kid really makes me happy. I even recorded some of his antics so you might understand a little better why.
Really, the people here are wonderful! I'm glad I have had the chance to get to know them and make friends. (It will definitely give me an excuse to come back!)
If you've read this entire thing, kudos! If no one has... it's cool... it will make for a good journal-type entry. And no worries... I'll go back to one image tomorrow!
