One More Reason Why I Don't Care About TV

So I will admit it. I was a huge fan of John and Kate Plus 8.

Notice the key work in that last sentence -was.

Now of course I had heard about the scandal and controversy as the media accused John of cheating on Kate. Fine, they have chosen to live their life a bit in the spotlight and I can handle that. They had to know that things like this would probably happen. And I honestly don't care all that much if he cheated or not. "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

But after watching just a little bit of the season permier last night, I am finished with this show.

One of the things I appreciated about JK8 was their commitment to their faith and marriage. There were episodes of them going to church and just last season they renewed their marriage vows in Hawaii.

And yet, when they were interviewed in the last episode, it basically sounded like their marraige was over. There was no mention of it being tough, but we are going to make it through. We are going to stick together no matter what. Nothing.

Now, I hope and pray that they surprise me and that their marriage does survive. But until I hear that, I don't plan on tuning in any more.

I've watched a few episodes too...especially of the last season, and was also surprised. They did talk so much about how they are married and it is a lifetime commitment and then suddenly it is like, "it got too tough. everything is off." (I haven't seen the premier yet though.)

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
