WHERE DID THE SUMMER GO????? went fast didn't it!

It's hard to believe Drew is in 7th grade this year! And at the High School too.  I've had a harder time dealing with it than him. He's growing up! :(
Only trouble he's had is with his locker combination. He said its EVIL. omg too funny! We bought one so he could practice over the weekend.
He was also recommended for the Pre-Algebra math class. They picked like 8 kids from Central and Drew was one of them. SWEET. He was a straight A student last year though.
He also has to ride a bus to n from school.
I take him to school or the bus stop n he walks home from bus stop. Because Im at work til 5:00. Bancroft park is the closest bus stop from where we live. There or City Hall... 
Why don't they have one at Central School?? Crazy Huh!
I went to River View, so we had a seperate Jr High.
 Tanner ready for his first practice in pads. First year of 5th grade tackle.
practicing with big brother

and dad too
