Meet Nick

Nicholas brought this getting-to-know-you booklet home from school earlier this week.  I loved it and just had to share ...

 Meet Nick
(I think those are pictures of footballs.)

 Hi, my name is Nick
(I think he's holding a football.)

 I am in second grade at ????? Elementary.
(Yes, I blocked out the name of his school - you understand.)

 My family plays a lot.
(I think the big green stick person is throwing a ball and the other little yellow person with the crazy eyebrows and super long arms is holding a bat?)  :)

 My friends and i love football.
(Can you tell we are Steelers fans?  All that black and gold going on.)

 I like to tackel to get the ball.
No explanation needed, eh?

I am special because I can do a back flip and twist my neck at the same time.

That makes me laugh out loud every time I read it.  

So I asked Nick, "Can you really do a back flip and twist your neck at the same time?"  He said, "Yeah, mom.  I really can."  So I asked him to show me.  He got the cat-that-ate-the-canary look on his face, looked around the living room and said, "There's not enough room in here for me to do it."

Uh huh.

"Okay," I said, "then let's go outside.  I would like to see you do this amazing feat."

He had a panicky look for a moment, then told me that it had rained all day and the ground was wet and it was cold out and he couldn't do it under those conditions.

To which I replied, "Your eyes are brown."

hahaha! That's a great story! My mom saved a few things I did like this back in the day and it's always fun to look back.
