My eldest child

I'm gonna try to catch you up to date on my eldest child. Hmmm...rolling eyes around while brain searches for 411.

William is my eldest child and (if you've been keeping up) you know that all three of our boys are adopted. And if you haven't been keeping up, now you know. William is now in Brunswick, GA at Job Corps. And I gotta tell ya, my dear husband has been catching it from his mom. Oh yeah! She has been giving him an ear full. Back to William. He was going to age out of school and he's at that age where mom and dad just aren't hip (cool) (down with it) (or whatever it's called nowadays) anymore. Hey you remember when you were 17 going on 40! William was and still is very excited about the Job Corps program. This is a good thing. He will either get his diploma or a GED and he will get job training for a career path that he chooses. And...get this...they pay him. For real! I think it is a great program. It wasn't easy to send him out into the world, so we figured an environment that is still controlled and monitored not only eases our minds but helps him to ease into the world.
Our calls to him have been uplifting and we can hear his excitement over the phone.
His one request is for us to please send him some toilet paper, striking paper, toilet tissue or what ever you wanna call it. It's the stuff you clean your bottom with. He says that people still it from the bathrooms.
I know...I'm as clueless as you are.

I think science is really cool but do I teach it...I try not to. Well, maybe that's not correct. We do birds and plants and critters and gardens and butterflies and insulin shots to cats and shots to horses and on and on. Do I teach science? Nope, not really! I just live it.
Now getting to my point.
I am in the process of checking our "Science in Motion" or "The Science Bus". And dig this...the buses name is Galileo. How cool is that! Well I am really excited about checking this bus and this science program out. I personally think it is going to be just awesome! But I promise to let you know as soon as I discover it for myself.
If you happen to beat me to it, please let me know.

Dolphin Tale

We L-O-V-E-D it! No joke! It was an awesome movie. with most things, there are pros and cons or good and bad things that are involved.

Pros: excellent movie, excellent people, excellent friends.
Cons: not enough people, I wore blue (as instructed) and no special matinee price.

Honestly - I don't mind the cons because the pros surely out weigh them.

If you get a chance to watch the movie, please do.


We are talking about a Road Trip to go see Winter!

Slackin on postin

I went a long time without posting. I actually thought about (ssshhhhh) not blogging anymore. I know, can you believe it? Not blog?! Who am I kidding?! Any way - I did do some "slackin on postin". I think I'm over that for a little bit. Once again my mind races with things to blog about. I want to tell you everything in our daily lives but I'm sure you would get as dizzy as me or then again, you may just get bored silly. Regardless, I'll do my very, very bestest to not make you dizzy or bore you.

I have several a whole bunch of pictures that I want to share. the next couple of days, keep a look out for whats been happenin in my world.

What every happened to family movies?

Have you ever wondered what ever happened to family movies? I have wondered it many times. It always seems like there are plenty of movies with lots of skin or kissing or fighting or shooting or such. But never any really good movies that touch the heart and leave you feeling like God is present. A movie with true values and morals.
