Nathan’s Childhood

Nathan got a box of his childhood things from his parents!

We found these things, which we can use for our family Halloween costumes:

   
And also an old radio and some wagon wheels:

 
 His Eagle Scout badges were pretty cool, like the basket weaving badge, painting badge, film making badge, reading badge, and the going to church badge…

  
He also had style guides for parties:

   
His mom went to Lamaze before he was born:

   

And these guys:

  

And those things from camping with the guys on scout trips:  
  

A small motor:

  
And a bear claw necklace:

  

Some very important books:

  
Machine parts we will probably also use on our costumes:

  

And a grocery list:

  
A grocery list, that is, with a secret message when you flip it upside down:

  

There were tiny sunglasses he painted with glitter:  
 
And some interesting light bulbs:

   
There was also a super cool telegraph key from his grandpa, which is extra special since that’s one of his musicals:

  

It was like a snapshot of his childhood!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
