The Anti-Twilight-Nephite

Last year when all the hub bub about a new book series came along, I listened.  Then everyone became fanatical, then crazed, now, down right obsessed about vampires.  Yes, yes, I know, :"it's a love story."  Well, I'll pass.  I was going to wait and read the book before the movie came out, now, I don't think I will read the books, EVER.  I may not even see the movie.  I may forbid my teenage daughter to see the movie. So please, don't tell me,  "YOU JUST HAVE TO READ IT."  No, I don't.  And if you ask my husband, if you tell me I HAVE to do anything, well, right there you lost me.  FREE WILL!!!

First Day of School

While summer continues to burn on, school is back in session.  Mr. C returned to TLES as a 2nd graders.  Whooa!!  I almost cried.  It was worst than Kindergarten.  My baby is growing up and has the attitude to go with it.  On the way to school, we talked about being the smartest kid in class.  He thought that title would probably go to someone else (probably-NOT!).  However, he thought he could be the kindest and most helpful student.  I thought that was brilliant.

Not to be forgotten, #1 is now a Junior and #2 the BMOC in 8th grade.  Mom didn't get her self together to take back-to-school photos THAT early. 

Just a few more years until they are out and we can rent their rooms to Bulgarian exchange students for big bucks$$$.
