The other day Kimball came home from school and said that he wanted to call and invite a friend over to play. This is monumental. The only other kids he has ever called to play with are his cousins and perhaps one or two other neighbor kids. He has never called someone who for us is a total stranger to see if they can play.
So we handed him the phone, and he dialed the number and made the call. It was fascinating to see him navigate the unwritten rules of give and take associated with this kind of phone call. Kimball does so well in so many different situations that it is surprising to see him struggle through something as seemingly simple as this.
Unfortunately the friend was busy that day, but we are going to try again soon.
