Chivalry Is Not Dead
Yesterday we went in search of knights, which are surprisingly difficult to find. After 2 hours and 6 stores, we found them in our local craft store. He sat in the aisle for close to half an hour looking at all the different choices he had before finally settling on the Duc de Bretagne. ( His little sister and main playmate, #4, had come along to give her expert opinion, but she proved to be no help once she saw the fairies.)
After further debate, he decided not to purchase a second knight for battle, reasoning that he could buy a knight next week, but chose a purple dragon for slaying instead.
A fairy for his sister so that she can play, too. "I'll just save for another knight and horse. I just wanted #4 to be able to play with me."
Chivalry is not dead. It is alive and well and playing with the cardboard castle downstairs in my classroom.
