I felt inspired by the word for Illustration Friday this week — space.
I think my super-E is coming to an age (he is almost 11) where he is seeking more and more space to himself. He loves to read and I think he sometimes would like to hide away and read without interruption from his little brother who constantly wants play. He gets up extra early just so that he can have some quiet, alone time for himself. He still gives in to little bro, most of the time, setting his book down for some action packed imaginary LEGO play and other-worldly pretending.
