Some Reviews

Now that summer is almost upon us we have started up two of our favorite summer activities - reading (well, that is mostly just my favorite activity) and watching movies.

Last night we watched Vantage Point which was a fantastic movie. It is one that you don't really get how everything fits together until the end. You basically watch the same events from several different people's point of view and each time you see it, you learn a little bit more. There is a bit of violence and some "strong language," but we highly recommend it.

I have read two books already - Water for Elephants and The Time Traveler's Wife. Both are very engaging stories that are a bit fanciful and unique. For the most part, I enjoyed reading both. But, I don't really recommend either of them. They both had a bit of explicate language and content that makes me not feel comfortable as a Christian reader recommending them. I hope that makes sense. I did enjoy them, but I would never reread them.

Hopefully the next book choices are a little bit better.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

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.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
