Spring Program

We went to Worthy's Spring Program on Friday. It was the typical thing - cute kids singing songs. He really enjoyed singing the songs and doing the motions. Many times this past weekend he went through his program and sang through the list of songs.

This song is "Mr. Sun"... not sure if it's copyrighted... :)

One Small Step for (Wo)Man

Today I got my cast off! I also took my first shower in 2 months... it was glorious! As you can see I still have the incision scar and my foot is a bit swollen. The swelling will decrease over time, but my ankle has had A LOT more movement today than it's been accustomed too lately.

This is my Xray from today. The bones all healed and you can see the pins & plate in it.

Here's the "lovely" incision. Thought my nephews would get a kick out of this. Also, my foot is not normally that plump :)

Live Long and Prosper...

So today it's here! The opening of the new Star Trek movie from J.J. Abrams. We'll be heading there tonight. The babysitter is scheduled and we can't wait! Dan's been a Star Trek fan forever and I acquired it with the marriage vows. I'm not a classic Star Trek fan, but really enjoyed The Next Generation, Deep Space 9 and Voyager.

This week I happened to catch J.J. Abrams (the director) on Charlie Rose and he was discussing the appeal of the franchise. His take was that it gives us an optimistic view of the future and hence that's why it's so widely embraced and adored, as opposed to a lot of other sci-fi material that tends to be post-apocalyptic, etc. This really illuminated why I think I like it. I hadn't thought about it before, but in many ways, Star Trek is very Kingdom oriented. God is bringing the Kingdom to earth, not destroying the Earth. This will be the place where God will reign physically and that's cool. Granted Star Trek's view of the future doesn't include God, but mine does and I'm convinced that God's scope and plan is more amazing than even Gene Roddenberry imagined.

And... we're not the only ones excited today...

The Dropped Ball

So let me preface this by saying that the last 4-6 weeks Dan has been doing EVERYTHING at our house - cooking, dishes, laundry, meals, cleaning and finishing his class. So 1 ball was bound to be dropped... and that ball happened to be the pool. Yep, our pool got algae-fied. So we've been cleaning it this weekend and I'm sure next week as well :)

You can see a slight spot of what appears to be blue there

Worthy's job is to do the steps... which he really, really enjoys :)

Will and I have had limited ability to get outside, so usually every afternoon we fill up his bucket and play "outside" on the lanai. It will really occupy him for hours!
