She will be here until Monday, so at least we get to enjoy her for a little while. Of course, we'll be dealing with her loads o crap and where to store it all for the summer....

We had a fun time, despite the ginormous skeeters and some rain. Our fave activity was fishing, I think everyone caught a fish (even ME, when I was holding Liam's pole for 2 seconds) We opted to 'catch and release' the little croppies we caught though. I'm off to vacuum the tons of dirt, pine needles and other crap out of my car!

"Mike Kwon Do"
I think this is where "WoWo" and Mikey will be hanging out during lessons today:
Seriously, Tae Kwon Do (or is it all one word?) looks like an amazing discipline for the boys to learn. Master Kim is very serious (in a gentle way) about teaching his students the values you want your child to learn: self-discipline, respect for elders, teachers, parents and family members, honoring their country and their place of learning, and much more. First lesson, the boys already learned they must wait to be allowed to speak in the dojang, they must address their teachers with 'sir' or 'maam', they must listen carefully to instructions. They were all eyes and ears for a whole hour, the longest I think I've ever seen them pay attention (except for a movie or tv show lol), and have learned how to properly bow, how to hand something to their teacher and how to receive it back, counting to 10 in Korean, and a lot more. Can't wait to see what they learn tonight!

Alex was the first to visit the 'treasure box' and he chose the old favorite balsa wood glider. We had a great time putting it together (then putting a lot of tape on it to keep it together) and flying it. It mostly crashed nose first, but still it was fun.

When I saw this picture of Jackie, then the picture we took of Michael yesterday, I just thought they were a perfect pair! Call me crazy (as I'm sure you will cuz I love silent films), but these two are adorable little Tough Nut Scrumpys!
