I cannot believe I have an 11 year old!

It was just a short time ago that Nathan was born.

Where does all that time go?

In so many ways, the 11 year old Nathan is so much like little Nathan was.  Back then, he could identify types of cars before he learned his letters, and he was fascinated with tools and cords and outlets.  He unscrewed a ceiling fan from the ceiling (beware of bunk beds), started the car by himself, and locked me out of the house all by the time he was four.

Today, he does more fixing than breaking, knows the specs of all the cars (and their Consumer Reports ratings), and is learning to program.  He just fixed the wi-fi in our house.  (He installed new firmware.  Problem solved.  Why didn't I think of that?)

Here's a look at Nathan at eleven:

Activities: Swimming, cycling, running, TandT (trampoline and tumbling)
Favorite things in the world: Cars, technology, and magazines
Favorite magazines:  Car and Driver, Consumer Reports, Popular Mechanics, PC World
Least favorite things in the world:  Oatmeal, writing anything by hand
Firsts for this year:  Triathlon in October

Happy Birthday, Nathan!  (And you can check out Nathan's blog too!)
