Stretch

I wonder if either of the Grandboys will be called stretch..or spider..or beanstalk.

You can almost see them grow.

Noah is taller than his Mother and gaining on his Father and little brother isn’t far behind.  I wonder  who will be taller..

Way to go tall one!  Stretch yourself so you can grow even taller.

This short one marches to his own drummer, he is a constant source of laughter for me. Out of about a hundred of the group photos..there are only a handful that his Mother found acceptable..the rest of them made me laugh out loud.

It was a beautiful evening, the golden light of fall highlights Noah face while he balances high in a tree. 

Noah  Sept 24 2011

Seventh grade is an adventure.  I asked him what his favorite subject was..he replied “Science.”   He likes Junior High because of the lunch period and  because you don’t have to be escorted by a teacher if you are in the hallway. He also told me..you just can’t be tardy.  The first week of school he was tardy..but it didn’t count because you are just a seventh grader and it is your first week.  He is the tallest kid in his class:)

  1. Great photos. 7th grade seems so far away to me but I do remember nicknames, like "Beanstalk!"

  2. Oh seventh grade, what an interesting year for boys. I supply teach and that seems to be the grade that befalls me. Noah doesn't look like the problem child.

    Enjoy them both, they'll be college bound before you know it.

  4. They are fine young, handsome men and yes, it won't be long before they are off to college. It is nice to see them smiling and having fun. Exactly what kids should be doing right now. Beautiful children!

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Yes, the meds your husband has is difficult as well and days can be harder to cope than others so you do understand. I'm on Dilantin, Topamax, Clonazepam and in such high dosages, I wonder how I get out of bed. I still suffer 2 seizures a week and I'm exhausted but I love life still. It won't wear me down. I just need to take time away from blogging. Thank you again.... I wish well to you and your hubby.

  6. It is a constant source of wonder to see grandkids grow. When I was a parent I was so close to the changes I almost didn't see them happen. Handsome young men, great photos.

    I wonder who will be tallest? :)

  13. I spent 37 years with kids in this age group as a junior high teacher. It was a great ride. They keep you on your toes every second. I have so many wonderful memories of these kids.
