Nathan's week

Nathan has had a pretty big week.
He turned in a science project that he worked pretty hard on.
Which he got an A and his teacher chose his to be displayed in the library for the whole school to see. He was pretty excited! And I'm pretty proud!
Then....he ran and ran and ran and ran some more in a cross country challenge and got 18th place.
Look at that smile. He's pretty cute, isn't he? I think so!

Nathan loves the 5th grade. He's becoming such a fine young man, so responsible and smart. He has such a bright future ahead of him. I wish he would slow down a little and stay my little boy for a while longer, but it's fun watching him grow and imaging all the amazing things he'll accomplish.

Ending the summer


We decided to end the summer with a fishing trip. We didn't catch anything, Brandon was bored two minutes into it and I grossed Nathan out again by pretending I was going to eat the worms, but we still had some fun.

They really like casting their own lines out, over and over and over into the water. I tried to explain that's probably one of the reasons they're not catching anything, but what do I know.
So after a little time watching their bobbers not doing much of anything we headed back to my parents for a dip in the pool and some s'mores. You can never go wrong with s'mores!
