Ethan is the sweetest boy you would ever want to meet. He is polite, friendly and very outgoing and he always speaks to Sarah and Peter. My kids are extremely introverted and will usually look away shyly after Ethan speaks to them.
I witnessed this behavior one morning and I talked to the kids about it after school. After that, when I picked them up, they would happily announce "I said hello to Ethan this morning!" So I didn't think twice when Sarah said she talked to Ethan.
"That's nice honey. What did you talk to Ethan about?"
"I told him I loved him."
"You did? What did he say after you told him you loved him?"
"He said thank-you."
I told you he was polite.
