9 Days Left

I can't believe Nolan is about to be a 1st grader. Things are really winding down at school. Yesterday he brought home a box of books that he has made throughout the year. The most recent one is about bugs. He actually knows the three body parts of an insect--do you? On Friday he gets to celebrate his July birthday at school and this weekend we have a field trip to his teacher's farm. Next week finishes up baseball. His end of the year show (Niskayuna doesn't do kindergarten graduations) is on June 19 and the next day he is done! He has done great and is even reading a little. It seems like math is his favorite so far. He's getting tall too. He can wash his hands at the kitchen sink now. Not to get all mushy, but it really amazes me when I really think about it. I don't know if Chris has said in the past the trouble we had having a baby. Nolan is really a miracle. I was on bedrest the entire pregnancy and after he was (thankfully!) born around the due date, he had a brain bleed and had seizures for a while. His heart actually stopped beating once because of the medication he was on for the seizures. After 2 weeks in the NICU, he got to come home and has been a normal kid ever since. So I give thanks for Nolan today. We have a lot to be thankful for with both of our kids.
