Elliot starts back at preschool in two weeks… and if I’m being honest, we are COUNTING THE DAYS ‘TIL HE’S OUT OF THE HOUSE. Henry’s going to be doing one day a week at the same school, and I think he’s really going to like it.

Classic, right? I believe Elliot picked this joke up from Arthur’s Halloween. Henry obviously picked it up from Elliot.
For the time being, this is the last of these journal comics featuring my sons. I enjoyed drawing them and still like the idea one of them might be interested in checking the sketchbook I drew them in out sometime when they are older. I like the idea so much that I may occasionally dip back into the sketchbook during the school year for an Elliot and Henry comic or two.
For the record, my goal with these strips was to get to the point where all the strips were observed conversations between Elliot and Henry, without any appearances from Ellen or myself. I found I couldn’t resist the urge to include myself… but I’m glad to end on a comic which sort of embodies what I was going after.
The boys are both enrolled in three or four separate summer reading programs: two through various local libraries and two through local businesses. Aside from plastic fish, the kids have earned coupons to IHOP and $5 dollar gift certificates to Half-Price Books.
A couple of new comics about my kids before I go into pre-school hibernation. I go back to my classroom VERY early compared with most other schools. I’ll be back in the swing of things before the end of August. I know, I know.
You might recognize the bin of toys from this comic a few weeks ago.
…and you WILL recognize the theme song to Animaniacs. Or art least, you should. One of the best cartoons of the 1990′s, I’ve shown the boys a couple of episodes of the show and it’s safe to say they are obsessed.
That’s fair enough, because I was obsessed with Animaniacs when I was a kid. The show’s mix of satire and classic Warner Brothers gags completely won me over. To be fair, there were a couple of less enjoyable segments in the show (I’m still not a Hip-Hippos fan) but SO many good ones.
