Let me sum up...

I'm still here, just haven't been in a blogging mood lately. It's been a busy week, what with getting Emily off to camp (I'm guessing she's had a good time; I haven't heard from her all week) and shuttling kids to swim lessons and gymnastics classes. The boys will be continuing classes for the next 2 weeks; Halle's class was all booked up for the next 2 sessions, so I won't be able to get her in until near the end of July, unless someone cancels. I have her waitlisted for a class during the same timeframe as the boys', just in case.

We went to see Superman Returns tonight. I enjoyed it... there were several times that Brandon Routh's characterization made me think of Christopher Reeve. It was a little long for Joel, I think... he actually fell asleep about 20 minutes before the end.

We'll be spending the weekend getting ready for a 4th of July cookout. Brian has invited his students and their families here for the afternoon. We could have around 20 folks here, including children. It won't be anything fancy... just burgers and hot dogs. I'll make a big bowl of pasta salad and some desserts (yogurt pies and cherry dump cake). Brian's boss/partner is bringing a couple of things as well. Thankfully I won't have to worry about the house too much.... Merry Maids is coming for their regular visit on Monday, so they'll have the house in good shape for Tuesday.

One last item in the "kids are funny" department: A few minutes ago, Noah was playing with an old BK Kid's Meal toy that shines a red light, kind of like a laser pointer. The dog will go nuts chasing after it. Anyhow, Noah decided to point it at the front of Brian's pants (in a strategic location, if you get my meaning), to see what Campbell would do. Of course, Campbell jumped and snapped at it. Luckily for Brian, he got nothing but air. This scene was played over for laughs several times. Yeah. My kids have wicked senses of humor. I won't venture a guess as to where they got them from.

Superman? Would have made a good made-for-TV flick, had it been edited way down (it needed editing way down, anyway). Like Joel, I too took about a 20-minute snooze during the movie. Didn't miss any salient plot points.

Girl... I don't see how you manage all you do! It ain't always easy bein' you, is it? But I don't know of anyone who would be better at it than you!

Hoping you enjoy the cookout on the 4th!

Sorry I missed your birthday. Hope it was great!

Noah sounds like Curt...right after we got Buddah, they were playing with a laser pointer and I was not paying attention--not until I had 2 pounds of kitty attacking my forehead, where he saw a little red dot...

Two thumbs up for Superman from me...I liked the mix of periods it was filmed in, and really liked Routh's quiet version of the Man of Steel :)
