Dear Noah...our local Pizza Hut restaurant is closing and they are opening a Carry-Out Pizza Hut down the street

You now LOVE Pizza Hut pizza. We have a very old sit-down Pizza Hut restaurant still here in town...one of the few remaining around. We do enjoy going to sit inside the restaurant to eat pizza from time to time..but after over 50 years...I think...around that..they are going to close it and tear down the building. This makes us sad...we will miss it. They will be opening a smaller, carry-out/delivery Pizza Hut closer to us right down the street...so it is bittersweet.

Last night when we decided to go pick up some pizzas for you for your supper you wanted to snap a few pics...saying in 20 or 30 years you would really enjoy looking back at the pics.

Here is one of you standing outside before we left. Anyway...I love you. School will be starting before we know it. I hope and pray it goes very well for us both again this year! I LOVE YOU!

Dear Noah....your school supplies are rolling in!

I cannot believe July is almost half over and it seems we only started it! All the Christmas in July events are taking place this weekend and next week and weekend. Your school supplies have been coming in via UPS...and I know before we realize it...school will be starting back up again for us! WOW...I am a bit shocked and apprehensive. I always have things I want to accomplish during the summer while you are out of school and I am off from teaching you...but so far have not yet even really begun those projects. I am not physically all that agile lately so the process would be slow to begin with...and I am hoping and praying I can get the major things I always want to accomplish actually FINISHED this year before schoolwork resumes.

I also wanted to work on special projects with you over the summer...teach you some things I never have time to during the regular school year..but you are all about being stuck in your room planted in front of your PC lately till all hours...playing Mine Craft or watching old videos of The Price is Right and Supermarket Sweep! Sometimes you forget to eat...take breaks..etc. So I am still trying to get a handle on that and control it a bit better.

Meanwhile we stopped up at the local Hallmark yesterday for the Keepsake Ornament Premiere. That is a family tradition and we enjoyed it.

We seem to be in a drought...no rain for a long time..lots of sun..and no rain in sight.

I should have put up a pool for you this year..maybe that would get you outside moving around more.

Regardless I love you. You said you are happier at Christmastime than other times of the year....and you are looking forward to the tree going up this year..etc.

More later..

I love you lots!

Dear Noah..you are still super flexible!

You are still so flexible. I need to work on this. You can still put both feet/legs BEHIND  your head...here you are putting 1 behind your head...with your aunties trying to see if you can then walk or stand up...I think you could have stood up with help...but you did manage to crawl along on your hands a bit with your leg over  your head.

You are my silly boy...who is rapidly growing up to a young man.

I love you..cannot believe you are already 13-1/2 years old.
