2. Wipeout in my living room
Ever seen the show Wipeout?
Well, my boys LOVE it! And, earlier this week, when I came into the living room, I noticed all the cushions, from every piece of furniture that has removable cushions, on the living room floor. The boys were belly-flopping onto the pillows and laughing wildly. My 4 yr old looks and me and exclaims, "Mommy, we are playing Wipeout!" Oh, yes, life with boys!
3. Did I mention that I am hosting a fundraiser to help orphans in China????
This is another cutie who will benefit from your generosity!
4. Persuasion or Persuasion?
I love Jane Austin novels and movies. I can read the books over and over again and watch the movies again and again. But, I am stuck right now. Which Persuasion do I like better?
older one with Amanda Root that is more true to the book or . . .
newer one with the more handsome Captain Wentworth and the score that tugs on your heartstrings just a bit more.
Both good, both have a strange scene at the end that make you wonder what they were thinking when they wrote that into the script, but . . .
I am just not sure which I like better . . .
Which one do you all like better?
5. More cuties you will be helping by signing up for the virtual 5K
Well, it seems that what I wrote in this post is true. He has not changed back to his old ways yet. He is currently reading Lord of the Rings! It is on the 8th grade reading list and he is actually reading it. Now, his desire is spurred by the fact that a friend of his read it and by the fact that he really wants to see the movie, but I do not care. The fact that my boy, who really did not want to pick up a book before, is challenging himself with a book 4 grade levels above his own is just fine by me! No matter the motivation!
7. And just one more shameless tug on your heartstrings to get you to donate to the Run for the Little Flowers Virtual 5K . . .
Have a great weekend everyone!
