This kid keeps me laughing.
*He has worked hard to bring up his math grade, and just found out he will be in 8th grade honors math next year!
*He loves to read a few book series: The Hunger Games, Divergent, Percy Jackson, and Harry Potter. He's read them again and again. (Broadening his literary horizon at school has not been his favorite thing. He prefers to stick with what he knows he likes.)
*He was sad to learn that one of his best, funniest friends, Alex Howy, will be moving this summer.
*He no longer thinks Minecraft is worthy of his attention. These days it is all apps on his iPod and "Good Mythical Morning." The webcast has two men as the hosts, and they discuss all sorts of fun and funny topics like eating hot peppers, strange animals you'd never believe actually existed, etc.
*He has turned a new leaf and now wants his room to be in tip-top shape. He'll organize his closet and drawers, keep things picked up, and so forth.(Yay!)
*He is always asking when he can see his Miller cousins and have a sleepover with Grant. It's so wonderful to have them close, but 1 hour is still so far away when you want to see them often.
*He's been interested in sketching lately. He's made a sketch of a Roman soldier that is really good. Recently, he started working on an ancient (Greek, maybe?) building. He treasures his sketches.
*He really wants to sign up for flag football. Every so often, he'll go out to the backyard to practice runs with Dad. He likes to use the football gloves he got for Christmas.
*Style is important to him. He'll ask Colin periodically for assistance in choosing an outfit.. He likes to have his hair smoooooth.
*Micah can be such a great playmate for his siblings. They'll sometimes "get in the groove," as I like to say. They'll collaborate and enjoy each others company for long periods of time. It seems like Sundays is when this happens most often. I love it.
