Summer...and littering...and the vow.

Summer has sort of officially started.  The girls had their last day on Wednesday (we had hibachi - their choice - to celebrate).  My last day was Friday, but I went in today to finish up some odds and ends.  Chris is teaching through Wednesday of this week.  Quinn's last day with Mrs. Spry (don't even get me started on that one - the tears - omg, the tears) is next week. 

And then we will all be home.

But my Dad and Stepmom and coming to visit the week after that.  And we have the girl's recital to get through. 

And then it will feel like summer, officially.

Chandler brought home some of her writing from school last week, including a very nice persuasive piece that was written in her best handwriting and obviously displayed somewhere.  It was about not littering and it was a really well thought out piece with great points made.  Her final paragraph was the clincher though...

"In conclusion, I strongly urge you not to litter.  Because in the future, when the aliens come, we don't want them to think that we didn't know how to take care of mother nature."

Um, what????  Crazy girl!

Have you seen the movie The Vow?  Have you read the book?



It is worst book to movie that I have ever seen.  No, really.  I understand that it is merely "inspired" by true events, but come on, very, very, very few things were the actually how it happened.  I read the book a few months ago and was looking forward to seeing the movie...such a huge let down!  The true story is so, so, so much better! 

Don't you hate it when that happens????

The Lucky One was the same way in my opinion. I was disappointed in all the discrepancies.
