{Weather Outperforms Cartoons}

We've had major family changes this past year. And despite it all, Caleb has had a terrific 1st year of school. A typical morning before school would include waking up, going downstairs, asking for a bowl of cereal and then ask for today's newspaper. While chomping and chewing sugar coated Froot Loops or Lucky Charms, Caleb would read, analyze and critique Seattle's Chief Meteorologist's weather synopsis for the week. He would let us know where we could expect thunder and lightening storms, tornadoes and snow blizzards. He learned words like mostly, partly, precipitation, mph, high/low pressure and El Nino. And upon entering class, his 1st grade teacher would get a short weather report for the day.

Jeff Renner's biggest fan.

Caleb was sick one day and stayed home from school so I tucked him on the couch and asked him which cartoon he'd like to watch. I don't want any cartoons, Mom. Can you turn it to the weather channel?

You are one of a kind, sweetheart.
