Kyle's Weekend in Photos

Kyle had a pretty good weekend, and I captured some of it on my phone. You might have to click on a few of them to zoom in and see him.



They started a new awards program at Kyle's school and he received a math and reading award. Definitely a proud poppa moment. He didn't know he was getting an award, but he told me he thought he might be getting one when he saw me at the school. He said I wouldn't just show up unless it was something important. He's a very astute young man. 


We went to Red Robin to celebrate Kyle's achievements. Not a lot of chatter at the table as Kyle and Hayden were busy playing games that required their absolute attention. 

Kyle and I went to the Science and Technology fair at the local university and he spent some time building a skyscraper. He even took the time to put a fence around the building. And if you look at the first photo, you will notice that he also put some floors in some of the rooms.



They had a photo booth at the fair. And this first picture cracks me up. I'm not sure what he was doing. I guess he was a little surprised that it actually took his picture or maybe he was just doing his best impression of a person who just heard that Donald Trump was really our president. 


This is the face he makes when we ask him to "smile." 


And this is Kyle just being Kyle. There might be some photographic evidence out there that I might this same kind of face. I guess the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. And in case you can't read it, he's holding a sign that says "Future Engineer." He has been saying since he was 5 that he's going to be an engineer that builds flying cars. 






Thanks for stopping by.
Talk soon.
Have a nice weekend.



I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

I've waited a long time for my flying car and I'm glad Kyle will be working someday to make it happen. Take care.

I love to see this stuff. It's a lot of fun being proud of what your kids do when you are not around. Colin had straight A's on his most recent progress report and I was definitely proud.

I remember those award assemblies in grade school. They are just as exciting as making the Dean's List 15 years later.

Kyle looks like a happy, goofy little guy! You know, some kid who's little right now WILL BE the one who builds a flying car, so why not him? I can't wait for flying cars. Tell him to hurry!

Go Kyle! Congrats on the awards! Red Robin is awesome, but those kiosk things are evil. I turn them around whenever I see them (usually at Chili's.)

"maybe he was just doing his best impression of a person who just heard that Donald Trump was really our president." This made me laugh. Y'know, my girls watch a lot of Nickelodeon and when they did "Kids Pick The President" I assumed they'd go with the famous guy from the TV show while the adults picked the qualified, mature adult for pres. Kids: 1, Adults: 0.

They also did one for the Super Bowl. I thought the kids would go with the more popular Patriots, but they picked the Falcons. Sadly, both kids' picks lost.. but they give me hope for the future. Kids: 2, Adults: 0.

Applause, applause! Didn't he do well! I foresee a great future for Kyle in the engineering field, you must be very proud of him.

Congrats on Kyle! What could make a parent more proud than his kid being super smart?

He's getting so big too!
