Day 148 - Movies & Angry Birds...

I woke up this morning to the sad news that the body of Will Norton was found in a pond close to where his hummer was hit by a tornado in Joplin last week. He was on his way home from his high school graduation. Such a heartbreaking story...like so many others. Will was a very entertaining You Tube star...you can watch his videos here.

Everyday is a gift...a blessing.

A big thanks to Cindy for posting this summer's free movie schedule (for Central Arkansas). It isn't always easy to take four kiddos, six and under, to the movies...surprise, surprise! Haha! So it is nice to be able to go to FREE movies and not feel bad about leaving early if the natives get restless :o) You can go to Day 146 (click here) and look at the comment to see this summer's schedule.

We had a good day today. We spent the first part of the day shopping for a few things for the house...my hubby is such a good sport :o) This afternoon, while the little kids slept and hubby mowed the yard, I took Sunshine to a birthday party. The theme was so clever...Angry Birds! How cool is that? When we got the invitation, Sunshine went nuts. She LOVES Angry Birds :o)

The mom made the cake...

And they played a real life angry birds game where they tried to knock down cardboard boxes with balloons (decorated like angry birds) attached. I should have taken a picture because my description makes it sound lame, which it was not :o) Haha!

Okay, I know I have said this a thousand times, but Sunshine's teacher is a rockstar. You guys, she came to the birthday party this afternoon...on a weekend...a holiday weekend. Above and beyond. We have had LOTS of great teachers throughout the years, but I have never seen one come to a birthday party.

If only we could figure out a way to get her to teach second grade next year! Haha!

How neat! I wish I'd thought of the Angry Birds theme! Loston would have loved that!
