Get a charge out of science

Im helping out these first graders with their science fair project, pure entertainment, they get so excited about things like electrons and static. I also spotted the Martin Luther King poster in the room that Xander impersonates daily by raising his arm up in the air while very seriously saying, "I have a dream".

Does he usually hit?

thats what the childcare lady at the gym asked me when I picked up my little man. He is usually a lover, not a fighter.

32 big ones

So I remember when my mom was 32, I was 5. Now that I've doubled my sweet 16, not feeling so sweet anymore. I need to set some goals for myself, so if I jot it em down, perhaps I can follow through with one or two:
1. Live Simpler- no more gourmet cafe mocha's daily
2. Do more yoga- increase my flexibility and core (I know Luke doesn't believe in this)
3. Meet an international friend-Im excited about this one
4. Be nicer to my husband, even when Im cranky
5. Cook and enjoy it- yikes, Im scared about this one
6. Richen up my prayer life-lots of room for growth here
7. Continue to love/cherish every second with my 3 babes and perhaps make one more?
8. Go on a romantic getaway with my hubby for our 10yr anniversary this year- see numero 7
I am feeling loved and overwhelmed with sweetness, maybe 32 can be sweet. I got brownies and ate two on the way home from dance last night, a little pre-bday celebration. I had a cake and cute card when I got home from work at 12:30am, along with some amazing cinnamon rolls rising in the oven for this morning, which by the way Xander said, "These are the gooodest cinnamon rolls I ever had."

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

If your okay with sitting for 3h, this is a great flick. I don't love the name, but it offers everything comedy, drama, fantasy, romance and Brad Pitt, go see it!

a Rockin handstand

Gymnastics coach needed for my daughter who asks me a 100x a day to watch her do handstands. I think the discipline would be great for her attitude as well.
