So Nick is now, I guess, a tween. He starts middle school in the fall, and was recently heard to announce that he's "practically a teenager." Since it is one of my great happinesses in life that I will not be parenting two teenagers at once, I have quashed this notion thoroughly. Nonetheless it's true that he's a tween.

This summer he has:

  1. been to France
  2. eaten an oyster
  3. learned stop-motion animation
  4. lost a tooth (another one is hanging on by a thread...)
  5. learned to unload the dishwasher
  6. gotten used to having his sister as a chauffeur
  7. swum in the Mediterranean
  8. made pancakes for the family without a "tedium monkey"
  9. gotten well into the second guitar book
  10. grown from below my shoulder-height to well above it
  11. turned eleven.
Happy Birthday, Nick!

And how did Nick enjoy his first oyster? I'm not concerned about the rest! But I hope the oyster didn't put him off the whole concept!
