Today is Nate's 9th birthday. I am so glad that he is in our family. He loves people, all people, especially people who have time to listen to him talk. At school, all the staff members know him well and comment to me about the kind things he has to say to them. I love to watch him on sundays as he "makes his rounds" before church. He tells all the older ladies how their outfits make them look "just like super models", and has hugs for all.
He is good at math and is seeing the results of his efforts to be a better reader. He tries to be kind to every one (even his "smelly" sister). He has recently found a niche for helping me around the house, he has taken over maintaining the garden. He has weeded and watered and harvested all winter for me. It was a pretty little garden. This week he has been pulling up the last of the garden and we are preparing to till it. Seeds are ordered and Nate is looking forward to planting lima beans. I have never grown lima beans before.
