Grant... aka Nascar Man


Little G... my first-born nephew... these days he is all about Nascar. His favorite driver is Kevin Harvick, number 29. Grant even built a Nascar track in his basement, complete with an infield. In church this morning to stave off the boringness that plagues his life, Grant created list after list of Nascar drivers (and, I must say, he has very very neat handwriting!).
Grant is also into sports. We went to his baseball game yesterday, where he had some great action. He has tickets to see the Rockies and D-backs this week. He also plays soccer and two-hand touch with his dad in the backyard. His favorite teams are Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Falcons (guess who used to live in Georgia and now lives in Colorado?!?), the Denver Nuggets, and of course the BYU Cougars. He has also built some great tracks in the mud in the backyard--and he loves to flood them.Grant also loves legos. He's really into Bionicles (whatever those are but I know they must be important). He's shown me all his creations as well as all the lego sets he loves and really wants from the legos catalog (hint, hint, right?!?). He also likes to write songs--he and his friend Alex wrote a song about privacy the other day but they couldn't sing it for us because, well, it was private. Homework is his enemy (and that's a direct quote). So is boringness.

Here are some of Grant's beliefs:
  • Bermuda Triangle
  • Aliens
  • UFOs
  • Rods (they are little rods that fly through the air, apparently)
  • the Loch Ness monster
  • Sasquatch
  • Ghosts
  • Teasing his sisters at all times
  • Kyle Busch will not win the Chase (I have no idea what that really means--Grant just told me to type it. I refuse to be WT).

Yes, Grant is really not subtle with the birthday/Christmas present hints. What a funny kid! I LOVE his "beliefs." What a hoot. And while he may like a WT sport, he is almost the furhest thing from WT you can get!

Grant sounds like my kind of kid! and I hope he is right about Kyle Busch. I am not a fan of Happy Harvick, but I happy he is taking interest in the sport.
