We were reading The Great Alexander the Great this morning, and the kids were a little distraught over the fate of Bucephalus. Both were quite happy that Alexander named a city after his strong warhorse, though.

Fast forward a few hours when Nate suddenly and for no apparent reason spoke out, “I was really sad to hear that Bucephalus died. I knew he would, but I didn’t know that way.” He took a deep breath and mournfully said, “I guess the fates had cut his string.”

    I love the imagery of that. He is so sentimental and thoughtful. I love him solo much!
