Let me introduce you to one GREAT kid. 

This is Matthew, my grandson.  He has been riding quads since he was three years old.  This last summer he got to ride Grandpa's Banshee quad for the first time, he was so excited and thrilled to get to ride it by himself.

 He is a really smart young man, he is currently reading the fourth Harry Potter book. 

He wrestled for the first time this year and is making wonderful progress, each meet he gets better and better.

 He is also a great cousin, he is holding his baby cousin Dawson, (how many nine year old boys would want to hold a baby?). 

Matthew is also my game player, we have one particular game he and I play all the time.  It is Skip-Bo with a twist, we call it Turbo Skip-Bo.  We have tweaked it so that we play continuously until our piles are gone, not stopping to take turns, just full on and fast.
He is also a great Banana Grams player.  He can come up with some great words, frontier for one.  He did get one of the words wrong just because I told him it was right, I looked it up later and I was wrong.  The word was forfeit which I said was right as he had it at 'forfit'.

I love this guy, he is one awesome kid in my never to be humble opinion.  Any grandma would be proud  to have him as a grandson, I just happen to be that lucky Grandma.

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. It is always fun to meet new friends.

I enjoyed looking through your blogs . I am totally intimidated especially after my very first attempt with vinyl lettering. I might have said a couple of cuss words.
I need to learn some good secrets.
