The Yoda Letter

 

 

The question came up at dinner one night, from a conversation on Papa-Bug’s Facebook wall.

Is Yoda a Muppet?

We debated over dinner, but ultimately we didn’t know. So an impromptu homeschooling project was born. We wrote a letter.

Brother-Bug crafted the message (with some grammatical guidance from me) and he helped me look up the address on the internet. We mailed our letter off.

And we waited.

And a couple of weeks ago, we got a response!!

It was really exciting to open that letter. I could tell that Brother-Bug felt like a superstar because you know…The Muppets sent him a letter!!

You’re wondering aren’t you?

Yoda is NOT a Muppet.

Per the letter he received, a Muppet is defined as

“…a goofy puppet that has a particular style and acted in a sort of slapstick comedy style.”

And now we know.

This kind of project makes me happy we homeschool. I think we might be writing more letters in the future. Mail is so fun.
