reagan, the matter-of-fact magician

over the past year, reagan has been getting into harry potter and that whole alternative lifestyle. he got this great hogwart's wizard robe for his birthday from grandma sandy and he has been turning every stylus-shaped object into a magic wand. but when he's asked about his wizardry skills, he replies, "i'm not a wizard. i'm just a magic person." then he proceeds to look at you like you're stupid. he's really funny about his magic shows that he puts on. he can make anything smaller than a shoe disappear as long as you close your eyes. one of his best tricks involves 5 snakes and a blanket. that description doesn't do it true justice. it's 1 part magic, 2 parts subtraction and 5 parts imagination. he's also been making up his own spells. unfortuntaley, they don't all work that well. i've been borowing his "cleanius maximus" spell but i've had very limited results.

Love it! Such a smart kid. Does he still do puppet shows? Best part of Thanksgiving. I loved watching his face as he performed; he was thoroughly enjoying himself.

I love how matter-of-fact that kid is.
