    Here’s a post that fell between the cracks in the site move.  It was there on the old Draper’s Diary site as of last night, but it didn’t get moved to the new site.  Not a biggie if that is all that didn’t make it over.

    Stanley and Ben collaborated to create this Scratch game.  Move your mouse to help the bat grab all the sunglasses.  Press the stop sign when you get tired of this because it is never ending!  Have fun!

  • Happy 12th Birthday Stanley!

    Posted on July 26th, 2007 Sallie No comments

    Our first-born is growing up! Stanley is 12 years old today. His favorite things as a 12-year-old are dragon books, books in general, Zelda, Pokemon and Age of Empires video/computer games and books! His favorite food is cheesecake! In school (he’ll start 7th grade this year) his favorite subject is Social Studies. Recently he played a few rounds of golf with his Grandma for the first time, particularly enjoying the opportunity to drive the golf cart (YIKES!). He seems to be adding an inch in height every day and is looking forward to the day when he is taller than his Mom. 😉

    In honor of his special day, we’ve added a gallery of baby pictures of Stanley from days gone by.

    We love you Stanley!!!


  • Auto-bio poem by Stanley

    Posted on November 20th, 2006 Stanley 1 comment

    Thin, reader, tall, and ferocious
    Son of Kevin and Sallie
    Sibling of Luke and Ben
    Lover of recess, a good meal, and some desert
    Who feels happy at recess, glad in the summer, and sad when summer ends
    Who finds happiness in books, chocolate, and his grandma
    Who needs a dog, some love, and a new game
    Who gives the dog food, water, along with a treat
    Who fears the Devil
    Who would like to see Jesus
    Who enjoys recess with friends
    Who wears jeans and a t-shirt
    Resident of Milwaukee

  • Narnia

    Posted on January 13th, 2006 Stanley 1 comment

    Me and Dad saw the new Narnia movie.  It was great!  We had popcorn and a slushie.  I like the battle I liked the way the witch looked.  I also like the way the fauns and the centaurs looked.

     Check out this cool web site about the movie:

    We are reading “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” in school.  I’ve already read it as well as the six other books in the Narnia series.  I highly recommend them!

     For Christmas I got a Narnia calendar.  It had picutures from the movie.  (Thank you, Papa!)
