Josiah is showing his age as a super mature 8-year-old in the second grade. It isn't his amazing math, reading or science skills (all of which are well above average) or his classic teasing of others, especially girls that show him to be an exceptional kid. No, Josiah has developed a style all his own and has a lot of anxiety about his looks.
Josiah's unique style requires a lot of time and energy looking in the mirror. He wears clothes based exclusively on comfort, so it is not a clothing style (yet). Joe, as he is known at school, is growing out his hair and wears it over to the side. He likes to swing his head and see his flowing, red locks of hair swish across his head and lay just so. Josiah is so suave and his hair shows it.
