Swim Lessons

Our kids had swim lessons this summer. It was kind of scary and exciting. I was able to sneak away from work the other day and watch my kids swim. Andrew and Jaedyn did such a good job!

The swim lessons lasted for a week and a half. At the end of the lessons they had a graduation. All the kids got trophies.

Movies This Year

  • Okay... let me just say that Will Ferrell's Land of the Lost was dumb dumb dumb. 93 minutes of my life I will never get back. I now have to make up for this stupid movie by going to 3 chick flicks in the row.
  • Star Trek is one of the best movies this year - it changed my life.
  • I can't wait for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
  • I haven't seen Terminator Salvation yet. I will probably just rent that one.
  • The Watchmen (yes I went and saw it - I'm sorry!) was kinda dumb but kinda good. If you can get past the naked blue man junk it's not that bad of a movie.
  • Knowing was okay. Nicolas Cage is not my favorite actor. His best movie was Raising Arizona. Everything went downhill after that.
  • Race to Witch Mountain was a pretty good Disney movie. Good Disney movies are rare. I don't consider Pixar movies part of Disney.
  • Up was great! The kids loved it. It wasn't the best Pixar of all times (The Incredibles) but it was good.
  • We rented Taken. I liked all the violence and killin'.
  • Monsters Vs. Aliens could have been better but it got long and I think the kids got bored.
  • Wolverine was awesome but not as awesome as Star Trek (Star Trek changed my life!)
  • We haven't seen Angles and Demons. We should have seen that instead of wasting our lives watching Land of the Lost.
  • We haven't seen Night at the Museum yet
  • We haven't seen Transformers yet
