The Muralist

Today grammy arrived for her holiday visit.  She was so surprised to see how much the mural has grown in Nick's room.  While mom and grammy were in the kitchen we heard Nick working, we went into the room and saw that Nick was adding extensions of pictures to his mural. 

He was very pleased with his work!


Holiday Card Sale

This week Nick participated in the Holiday Card Sale at the Long Beach High School.  Mom found these pictures on the district website.  And today, Liza brought Nick one of the cards designed by his friend Manny!

Nick's old movies

Lately Nick has been looking at old pictures and asking for a VHS player.  Mom and dad tell Nick no one makes VHS players anymore, he can watch DVDs and movies on YouTube.

This weekend mom was in the attic and found a box we have not seen since before the hurricane.  It had a big black book that had Nick's old DVD collection.  Mom said, "I hope this will make you happy to see these old movies again!"

Halloween Dance

Tonight was the Best Pals Halloween Dance at the Long Beach High School.  Mom takes Nick to the dance every year.  This year, when we had to pick out a costume, mom said to Nick, "you seem to like dad's shirt with Abraham Lincoln on it, maybe we can make that your costume?"

We looked online and found a hat and beard so we ordered it.  Today Nick wore the shirt and the hat and beard as a funny homage to President Lincoln.

Nick's pool is closed

At the end of September we have to close the pool because it is too cold.  On Friday night Nick had his last evening swim.  The next day he came home from AHRC and the cover was on the pool, it was closed. 

Nick took out his calendar and showed mom and dad that the pool should be closed in October, and Saturday was still September 30th.  Mom and dad said we had to do the work on Saturday, Nick will go to the pool at the JCC until June when we open Nick's pool again.


Getting ready for school pictures

This week the Long Beach High School took class pictures.  Dad took Nick for a haircut and mom picked out a nice shirt for Nick to wear.

Mom showed Nick his school pictures dating back to 2007.  Mom said "you don't smile often in your pictures, try to give us a nice smile this year!"
