“Dear N&L,

Good afternoon! I was just getting caught up with some letter writing and sending pics out to Sarah’s dad, sister and brother and I thought I would do the same for you guys with Thomas. Hope you like them.

It has been awhile since I sent some out to you guys! I have gone through one bag of pics and am sending some of those. They are from Summer 2001 to June 2002. There will be more, just got to get to the rest of them.

Thomas will be starting school the first week of September. I can’t believe it! Where did the time go! Like the old saying, Time flies when you’re having fun! He is real excited! He will be going from 830am-230pm! What a long day for Kindergarden huh?

He is now sining in the Children’s Choir at church! He is too cute! He and a couple little buddies make faces at each other sometimes while they are singing! Goofballs! šŸ˜‰ He has really been getting into church lately. On Sunday nights, when he has to sit with us, he lifts his hands and prays, he shouts ALLELUJIAH! And AMEN! He will also go up to the Altar to pray! He now goes up and shakes Pastors hand and gives him a hug, where up until recently, he was very shy to talk to Pastor! Sunday night, we went to Church and stayed for a drama, and he did fall asleep on the floor! šŸ™‚ When the toy “gun” went off, he didn’t even move he was sooo asleep! It made everyone else jump or yell! šŸ™‚

I think after Sarah finishes softball, (only two more games!) I am going to sign him up for swimming lessons. He LOVES the water! I have been taking him to the beach and he hardly gets out of the water! What he does do is use his boogy board like a surf board! He tries to stand on it, and then he will lay it in the water, run up on the sand a little bit, and then run down and flop on the boogy board and float away! šŸ™‚ I can’t explain it good enough. It is something you have to actually see! A plan I have is when I get back to work soon, is to get a video camera! That way, I can send you videos of Thomas. He is still not real happy with getting his head and face wet, but it s A LOT better! :- ) More accepting of the idea that if you play in water, you get wet!

OH that reminds me, the other day I had use some visine, my eyes were dry and itchy and I couldn’t scratch them real good because I had my contacts in. Well, Thomas put his hand over his eyes and was making a groaning noise, and I asked him what he was wrong. He said, “Mom, I need ‘ONTACT’ for my eyes, they reeeeeely hurt” šŸ™‚ He calls Visine “Ontact”!!!! Crazy kid!!!!

He really misses you guys. He wanted to talk to you, so I dialed the number for him one day last week, but the answering machine (call wave) machine came on. Right after he heard the message where it says, “J, N or L” Thomas said, “Ya, L” thinking it would get to you! šŸ™‚ He tried! I/we didn’t leave a message though.

He has been handing out at my neighbors house with his buddies, Devon and Matthew. My neighbor is a child care provider, so he goes over to play. He is also a big rollerskater fan! He does REALLY well too! He is a trip to watch! He is changing right before my eyes, and it is the greatest thing to watch!

Well kiddos, have a great day! Enjoy your new place! Buh bye!

Best wishes, Pat”
