You love Tolkien. I'm not surprised. After finishing The Hobbit you stated, "I think I'm a hobbit mom. I love to eat second breakfast. I love being at home. And, sometimes, I'm fearful." Funny thing is I always knew that you would love these stories. Even at nine, you understand the layers of a well written book. I'm glad you are reading them now...while you are young. How wonderful to be a boy with all of that living imagination of yours. I'm glad it's summertime and you can play the day away. You said it perfectly this afternoon, "Summer vacation is like having everyday be Saturday."
Lucky little Hobbit.
