May the Fourth Be With You.......

Anyone else getting chills? 

To celebrate Star Wars Day, I thought I'd share with you all a conversation between my Sister-in-Law and my nephew, Tai.

Em: If you need help and you don’t see Mommy or Daddy, who can you ask for help?
Tai: Umm… Firemans!!
Em: Great! Good answer! Who else can you ask?
Tai: Umm… Policemans!!
Em: Another good answer! Who else can you ask?
Tai: Umm… Darth Vader!!! Darth Vader can help me.
Tai (turning to a roleplaying): Oh no! Oh no I’m stuck! Help me Darth Vader!

Then a couple days later, I got this email from my brother, Tai's daddy.

We’ve been making spaceships and dragons out of Legos lately. But these requests were especially fun. An x-wing and a whole series of Millennium Falcons. Of the Falcons, the second from the right was entirely Tai’s own work. I was impressed, he hit the general features. Kinda brings a little tear to my eye thinking about this… the Saga continues...

PS- “The circle is now complete. When I left you I was a but a learner, now I am the master."


May the Fourth be with you, always!


  1. Love that your geek gene appears to be genetic! Hope you guys had a great Forth!

    1. Yes! As I instructed so now do my brothers do to their kinder. I think it's really taking off with Tai, though. He really loves the Stormtroopers. I'm just not sure how a Rebel father brought up an Imperial son.
