Little Joe

Silas, who turns 4 this week, has no brothers (yet), so he’s created an imaginary friend. After watching an episode of Bonanza, wherein he admired Little Joe’s fighting prowess, he told me about his new friend, Little Joe. Little Joe lives next to the ice cream shop near our house. He goes to Silas’s Sunday school class, but “He’s a big boy. He’s in fifth grade. He likes me.” Little Joe has three big sisters and three big brothers, and a baby sister named Zoë. (Her last name is Joey.) Lately he’s been putting out deer traps to trap deer and elk. I think Little Joe is actually Silas’s alter ego. Such a funny little boy. He makes me laugh.
