“You don't raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they'll turn out to be heroes, even if it's just in your own eyes.”
~Walter M. Schirra, Sr.~

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.
