We went to a Sharper Image store this weekend and got to see a Pleo Dinosaur. It was really cute. We had to rub his head to wake him up and then he would chew on our fingers and play tug. Sean thought it was REALLY cute. He wants a pet Pleo now.
I attended a “getting started” lecture on homeschooling today. I was overwhelmed by all the different choices of curriculum there are and all the things that one should consider before deciding on a home schooling program. I’m glad I attended this year, since it will still be over a year before Sean will be starting school… there’s so much to research and think about that I’ll need at least a year to do it! Yowzer!
I read <this story> on cnn.com today… made me smile. I LOVE playing Bejeweled!
I recently tried the new yo-plus yogurt by yoplait that claims to help your digestive system. I haven’t had any digestive problems, but it was on sale for cheap, and I love a good deal. Turns out it tastes pretty good. I’ve been buying the vanilla flavor and mixing it with fresh fruit to make fruit salad. YUM! And on the Yo-plus website <click here> you can print out a $1.00 coupon. I don’t often advertise for products, but I like to share a good and yummy deal.
We played basketball with some friends last night and Nathan and I realized how terrible we were at basketball. The passing the ball part is not a problem… it’s the shooting and making the ball go in that was lacking. I also realized that it takes some effort and good timing to be able to rebound the ball. I used to yell at the tv whenever the team I was rooting for would miss rebounds. I would think, “how hard is it to jump up and get the ball?”… but I could never get my timing right to jump at the right time to pick up the rebound… and the jumping part was hard for me too… I apparently can’t jump very high.
First of all, GO JAYHAWKS! I’m not much of a basketball watcher these days, but I’m very happy that the Jayhawks won the championship cause my Kansas relatives (the Kansasians) live in Lawrence and my Uncle J works at KU. I bet there are many celebrations going on in Lawrence! But as I said… I missed the game… PixelJunk Monsters was keeping Nathan and I engaged. As Nathan says on his page, we’ve been playing some games on PS3 lately. We’re bonding over video games… haha! I like playing “Hot Shots: Out of Bounds”, but every time I sit down to play by myself to try to unlock new things, Sean wants to play. I may have to start skipping exercise so that I can play while Sean is asleep 😛
