Allison has started to take after her sister these days. I kept hoping she was going to be my quiet, calm child...but now I don't see that happening. I guess I have to remember that my children are half Nate. I also keep telling myself that these wild, crazy, independent, strong-willed, energetic, etc. children will very likely be successful later in life because of these characteristics that most days drive me crazy!
So Allison's latest hobby is climbing. Bookshelves (which she has fallen off of, yet continues to climb), the kitchen table, desks, couches (the backs and arms of the couch), the glass coffee table, pretty much anything dangerous, she climbs! Lovely :) So when we were at grandma's house this weekend, she was climbing the stairs up to their deck and I didn't think much of it (she has pretty much mastered stairs by now). Next thing I know she is on the cement screaming. Luckily she had only fallen 1 step and there wasn't any bleeding...but it sure looked nice for church yesterday! The first of many more to come, I'm sure!

Nate took his first exam last week (the rest of everything has been projects) which he was really worried about. It was for his statistics class, and he, along with about half the class, was feeling a little unprepared to take this exam! So he studied and studied and his hard work paid off! Thanks for working so hard for us, Nate! We love you!
