Is it really Friday already? This week sped by – in spite of the fact that I thought it would last forever, since Natalie was gone for most of it. She is home, exhausted and crabby, but home. And I’m a really mean mom, since I wouldn’t let her spend her first full day home at her friend’s house. Sigh.
Tomorrow is our monster-Tae Kwon Do day. Seminars from 8:30 till 11:30, then a tournament from 1:00 pm until whenever it gets over. Which means I will have lots of time to sit and read between the kids’ events.
Only nine days until we leave on our very first all-family vacation. We’re heading to the Oregon Coast, with a stop in Portland to go to the zoo and visit Kevin’s mom. I’m making lists for packing and hoping I’m not forgetting something hugely important.
I’ve got quite a few links for you today, so here goes.
~ Trailer for next May’s Terminator Salvation starring (the yummy) Christian Bale.
~ One of our favorite Avi books, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, is being made into a film.
~ The Literary Feline is having a huge book giveaway to celebrate her blogaversary.
~ Peter David, the author of Tigerheart, posted the unique story of how he proposed to his fiance.
Whew – that’s it for this week! Have a great weekend, everyone.
