Photos of the kids.

Boy do kids grow up fast! (Especially when they are someone else's.) Here are some semi resent pictures of Matthew, Christina, and Nolan for all of you who haven't seen them in a while.

Here we have Nolan (age 7) having a play date with Shelob's youngest.
(This was taken around Halloween 2007.) This is when we first discovered that Nolan is in fact a muggle, and was therefore unable to transform Helob Jr. into a Hershey's chocolate bar. Can you believe Shelob tried to dismiss her son's behavior as instinct? "Misunderstood" my foot!

Ah yes! Here we have the lovely Princess Christina, disguised as a commoner, being taken captive by that aggravating bully known as the Grimm Reaper. Thankfully her charms won him over and he decided to show some brotherly kindness for once by setting her free. (Or, perhaps he knew his mother was watching and would haunt him to the ends of the earth.) Anyhow, now she is back to reading her "Tiara Club" princess training manuals, singing, dancing, and sharing as if nothing had ever happened. That's my girl!

Lastly, we have here Sir Matthew the constructive (age 10) as he displays a model of his future popsicle stick mansion he hopes to live in one day. (It was one of the requirements needed to complete his Webelos' art pin.) Bid our brave knight farewell as he ventures on to his next mission, in which he will tackle the mighty oboe dragon from the world of Beginning Band! (Hopefully his father can give him a few good pointers.)

Sweet! Keep the pics coming!

What I would do is talk to Dave about setting up a gallery on his webpage and post a bunch. I bet there is some sort of limit to how many pictures you can have on the blog.

Beginning Oboe, eh? That's right, I guess Dave did play that once (or twice). Athough, I must warn you that you might be setting up your son to being a "band geek" or a "band nerd". Not to say that it's necessarily a bad thing, but... Naw, it really was COOL.

I missed out on band...waahhhh........But I guess you really can't lug a piano around the football field, can you? Maybe if it was on a float...How come they don't have piano floats for marching band?
