Less than a month since my last post, uh-thank-yuh. We miss watching the Olympics every night, though I admit I am getting more homework done. My parents came to visit us, a short 2 day trip that was great fun. Dad and Ryan went go-karting, and all of us went to the Planetarium. There are lots of neat, free things to do at the Planetarium, I highly recommend it. I need to have my mum send me the pictures they took so I can put them on here. I do have a picture of Sammy on our last geocache to put up.
Sammy is still not crawling. We're trying to teach him how to do finger foods. Honestly, he is the weirdest kid. He will put everything in his mouth EXCEPT food. We give him Cheerios, corn, black beans, you name it- he won't eat it unless Mommy or Daddy put it in his mouth.
Lately I have been listening to Focus on the Family's Radio Theatre version of the Chronicles of Narnia. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was the first "chapter book" I ever read, so I am very fond of the series. The Radio Theatre version is fantastic. I tried to get into the audiobook versions of Harry Potter, but it was rough. No offense, Jim Dale, but you just can't bring the books to life with the same guy's voice for 16 hours. The Radio Theatre is great because they have different actors for all the main characters, sound effects, and music. Plus, they are abridged, so while you get the whole idea of the story, it doesn't take overly long to listen to. I love listening to it on the bus, and being transported to Narnia on my way to clinic. When I was a little kid I used to desperately wish Narnia was real, and I would look all over my grandparents' house and big backyard for a way to get there.
Nostalgia aside for the time being, I would like to direct your attention to my new album of Sammy picture on Facebook. You don't need to sign up for an account, just click here.
