That is a huge stack of Valentines my children made this past week. We signed up for a swap with a number of families who also use Oak Meadow curriculum.
There were A LOT of families. Fuss and Bug decided they wanted each child to have their own. Then Fuss became completely disillusioned when he realised he didn’t have the time, resources or energy to send each one an entire fully-rendered scene. Basically he wanted to send each of the 94 children on the list a storyboard. A complex storyboard.
He decided if that was not to be, he would not participate at all and stomped off with his markers. So, Bug had to completely the monumental task. Which she did. Without complaint and while smiling the entire time. Phew. I thought I was going to end up making 94 Valentines.
Tonight is Valentine’s and my husband took me out to see Avatar. I was really keen to see it based on all the reviews. I usually like to wait for them to come to the movie network, since I pay for that and would like to make it worth paying for. Actually, I pay less per month for that than for one movie ticket.
I felt that Avatar needed to be viewed in 3D on a large screen. I believe I was correct, however I didn’t really like the movie. I was upset by the gratuitous violence and just generally completely overstimulated.
We came home after to relieve the sitter. She was planning to go out with her family and we had to see a later movie than we anticipated since the one we wanted to see was sold out. Sold out 9 weeks after coming to theaters. What an accomplishment.
So, once home, Colin took our sitter home and then went to pick up dinner. Taking a three-year-old along to pick up dinner seems to do wonders.
I thought that was about the cutest pizza I’ve ever seen!
I’m now off to bed to read a book and see if I can wind down from the wild ride that was Avatar.
Enjoying the journey, Amanda
