Well, today is the last day of summer school and we have two weeks until school is in session again. We are hoping that Nick will do well during these two weeks without school as a diversion. Weekends are usually quite difficult, so we are hoping and praying that we can enjoy these two weeks.
Yesterday, Nick was in a talent show at school. He got up by the microphone and was too scared to talk, so another boy said Nick’s line. They were doing a little Dr. Suess skit. When his class was done, Nick got right up to the microphone and thanked everyone for coming, which was really cute. We brought him home with us since he had had a rough morning and the other singing during the rest of the show bothered his ears. He was really happy to stop at McDonalds on the way home and partake of a strawberry milkshake.
Rachel, our 22 year old daughter, left Wed. night on a bus to New York City. Our older daughter met her there yesterday afternoon as she caught a ride into the city from the camp she is a nurse at every summer. Last night our son in law and his sister and brother in law flew into NYC and they are all vacationing together until Sunday. Since Megan and Scott and his family live in Hamilton, Ontario they were originally going to fly in from Toronto, but the prices went quite high. They saved a lot of money by driving down to Buffalo and flying from there. Rachel was quite thrifty and took the bus from Buffalo to NYC for $1. The price was great but she wasn’t too thrilled with bus travel. :o)
