Last week Nathaniel went to the Dr. for his 7 year check up. He weighed in at 56lbs (75%) and 49 inches tall (50%).

Cub Scouts

Tonight was the first night of cub scouts. We had 15 boys show up to the meeting!! It was very exciting. Nathaniel received his Tiger badge and is now working towards his Wolf badge. He's very excited!! The first den meeting is Oct. 2nd, so we will have to see how many kids sign up!! Please visit our website for more information. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month in the Band Room at Knapp Charter Academy.

A Running List of Nateisms

Growing up to fast:
From the mouth of Nate:

1. Asked us not to call him Nater Tater anymore.

A Running List of Zachisms

Growing up to fast:
From the mouth of Zach:
1. While getting a hair cut and admiring his "sparky" new hair, "Can I have my hair colored?"

2. Today, 9/10/08, Zach rode with Bethany out to Creative and boy was he full of it. Here's what tops today's list.

• After following behind a "stinky" car on the highway, Zach said "what is that smell?" Bethany told him that it was the car ahead them. He said that it was yucky "smelled like burnt watermelon."

• When they arrived at Knapp to drop off Austin (Bethany's son), Zach said "excuse me Bethany, this isn't my school. I go to CLC." Once reassured that she wasn't leaving him there, he told her "good cause this is Nate's school."

• While walking across the parking lot to get into CLC, Zach had his hand up. Bethany didn't think much of it until they had reached the sidewalk and Zach says "next time please hold my hand when we cross the parking lot."

And that's just a few. :)

Back to School

As we all look forward to our 2nd (or 3rd) week of being back to school, I would like to reflect on the previous week.

Nathaniel: Started second grade, enjoys his new teacher, Mrs. Deveny and had homework every night.
Zachary: Started 4-year-old preschool, enjoys Kathleen and Liz and thinks he has homework every night.
Monica: Began my last semester at GRCC, enjoys my professor and is looking forwad to being done Dec. 15th.
Greg: Students are back, trying to wrap up summer projects and is still very busy.
