Nate's Superultimate Trailer

Has it really been a month since the last post?! How does that even happen. Where is time going? I suspect there is a Doctor Who joke somewhere in there but I wouldn't know since I never watch the show. If YOU watch the show, pretend I just made a good Doctor Who joke.

Speaking of shows, Nate continues to love two things, Pokémon and iMovie. Most recently he discovered the "trailer" section of iMovie and he put something real special like together for you.

It's been a rough year so far with Nate suffering so much loss of strength, his ulcerative colitis, GBBO moving to Channel 4 and of course the US election being renamed Thunderdome. So it makes me happy when Nate finds things that he enjoys, whether it be Pokémon, 1st Grade or iMovie.

The great thing about iMovie is that Nate can do much of it himself. He'll spend hours adding in sounds and titles and videos. The only thing he can't do is film any of the shots. It's great to see him using his hands and imagination.

Thankfully, because of Pokémon and now iMovie, he has started using his hands and arms more and his imagination has been in overdrive. Example:

Also, we got Nate's school picture this week. This was the conversation I had with him before the photo:

Me: There are a lot of people watching
Nate: Yeah
Me: Well, just smile natural...but don't look like you're smiling natural
Nate: What does that mean?
Me: I don't know, smile casual.
Nate: Uh, okay.

This was the result:
