I was in a race. We were racing in a maze. I was going super fast on my fire-car skateboard! Dad and I we was racing fast around and around and around. Then a shark was chasing us so we had to go faster and FASTER!
So then BLAST-OFF!!!
We went to outer space. We went to a planet. (He said the word planet with a lot of feeling something more like "plahnnnehtttt" so super wow, awesome, and cool were all inferred.)
Me: On your skateboard?
Lando: Ya. and then we had to come back and we was going faster and faster and then (deep exhale) We Won!!
Not too bad for a kid who didn't speak hardly at all until after his 3rd birthday. I'm so thankful for his progress! I love the story because it has all the elements: a beginning, a middle and an end. I also love it because of the picture he drew--big big spirals and then some fuzzy stuff that I guess is the "blast-off" smoke. There are a couple of faces in the spiral maze--him and his daddy.
