I don't often get Nick in front of the camera, but this weekend we got to spend a little time together, just me and him, without the girls. It was nice to chat and let him tell me all that is going on in his world, without interruption.

So far 8th Grade is off to a great start.
He is happy to be back in school with his friends and enjoying all of the fun extra curricular activites that the school year brings. Of course he is not loving all of the homework and tests, but so far he seems to be doing well. He was voted Class Representative by his classmates the first week of school. This is a first for Nick, so he was pretty excited and we are very proud of him. I am still not exactly sure of all the responsibilities that come with this title...... but he says he is ready for it and that is all that matters.

Really stand out shots of your son. How nice that you got to spend the time one on one together. That's great that he was elected as class representative - it's always an extra thrill as a Mum isn't it when something like that happens. My 8 yr old got elected to the SRC (similar idea) this year and I was so proud, until he lost his badge for the SECOND time! Let's not talk about it...

Thanks for the time you put into hosting this Friday link up. Much appreciated.
