Jon is leaving for St Louis in a few days to work on his doctorate in philosophy. I didn't realize it when he was little, but I guess he has always been a philosopher.
Noelle recently found this little memory I had written:
At the age of four, Jonathan was playing a Monopoly game. He began to look through the Community Chest cards to select the one he wanted instead of picking up the top card. I told him he couldn't do that because it was cheating. Then I realized his young age and said something like "No, it isn't cheating for a four year old. When you do that at the age of nine, it will be cheating."
Jon drew himself up straight, looked at me and replied, "No, Mom. When I am nine I won't cheat, I'll lie."
