Hello! It's RTT! I have missed it for a few weeks now. WHAT? I know.
*Apparently the 6 weeks we took for summer vacation made me totally forget that homeschooling seriously cuts into my blogging/napping/movie time. I have to actually teach and interact with Indy. Whaaaaaa.
*What did people do before the invention of portable music? Think???? Talk to other people???? On my way home from the gym this morning I realized that every single person had earbuds in and was busy looking at the ground. In the interest of full disclosure, I should add that I too was wearing earbuds, but I make it a point to look at (or at least try to look at people-hard to do when everyone's looking at the ground) people and nod or say hello. I think mp3 players are making us antisocial.
*Indy's BFF had a super awesome birthday party this weekend. It was Star Wars themed and Hoosier Mom (really, 3 months and no blog update?) made the coolest R2D2 cake. Seriously. It was amazing. Check this out:
*James Bond carved the super cool Death Star watermelon in the background. It is now official: watermelon is his medium. You can see his watermelon shark and watermelon monkey brains by clicking the links.
*Indy wants a Star Wars party next year (he told me this about a week before the pirate party this year) and said when James Bond carves the Death Star watermelon for him, we're going to put some fireworks in it and blow it up just like the movie. Sigh. He also wants a Han Solo in carbonite cake, like this one:
*Is it really almost Labor Day Weekend? REALLY? Where did the summer go? Of course here it's already chilly (high of 62 today), but still, Sept, already????
*Indy had his first soccer practice last night. James Bond called me at 4pm to tell me that he'd gotten an email last week, that he hadn't opened until just then re: Indy's soccer. We didn't know when practices would start (we were told to look for an email), so at 4pm, I learn that practices start at 6pm (that day!) and Indy needed cleats and shin guards before then. Great. We ran to the store (where they were mostly wiped out of cleats in Indy's size) to get a pair. The only ones they had in his size were neon yellow and the only shin guards they had left were kind of a goldish/neon yellow color. Fancy! I'll have to post photos.
*Drat, Indy needs my help. I guess I'd better go do something. Before I do though, I'll leave you with this:
