So today is the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Nasa has an article: Shakespeare meets Science. I’ve spent way too much time on the NASA website today. I read about a coalition NASA has put together to search for life on other planets Click here and all about Kepler’s mission. Gosh, there’s so much about space we can’t even begin to start studying. It’s amazing.
I was searching for “Purple Rain” today but couldn’t find it free anywhere so I ended up finding a chick-flick called “What If.” It has Daniel Radcliffe in it. It seemed kind of predictable at first but then it switched and ended up being a really good movie. You never know with Daniel Radcliffe. His stuff since Harry Potter is so weird. Like, “Horns” (I still don’t know if I like that movie or not) and “The Woman In Black” was weird but scary and the ending was strange. He kinda lacks emotion but thats refreshing in a way too.
The other thing I read today was a talk by Elder Hales about how to seek to know God. I love the simplicity but wisdom in his talk. He says,”The light of belief is within you, waiting to be awakened and intensified by the Spirit of God.” Beautiful.
Have you seen John Edmark art? It’s amazing .He does sculptures that you wont want to take your eyes off. Look at this one, for example. Crazy!!
On the homefront, Evelyn is grounded from technology (TV, computer, phone) for a week. I should ground all of the kids once in a while. She has been so creative and more fun to be around since she’s unplugged. She’s played games with her siblings, drawn, colored, and had conversations with us. We should all unplug for a week. Can you imagine?! Eeek…I can’t think of not being without my phone…
Daniel, Chance, Isaiah, and wait for it….Trevor are planning a father/son campout in May. Yes, Trevor is going too. Daniel invited him while Moe and I stood flabbergasted that Trevor was all over it. The scouting program through church does father/son campouts every year and this year, Chance is old enough to go. Trevor said the best part of his childhood was the father/son campouts. Who knew?
Savannah lost her phone on Wednesday inside the house and we still haven’t found it. She set it on the chair in her room before school and it disappeard. I thought for sure we would’ve found it by now. The stupid thing is on airplane mode so we can’t even call it. She’s positive it’s in the house but we’ve pretty much exhausted all the nooks and crannies.
Chance went to Aidan’s house today and sold lemonade at his stand in front of his house while Isaiah met a friend the park and played for a couple hours. They both mowed and picked up dog poop when they got home. Chance is getting to be really good with the weedwhacker.
And that’s it for me tonight. What do you think of the new blog? WordPress is quite different from blogger so it might look boring for a while until I figure it all out.
