We rented movies this weekend. The boys got a Pokemon movie and Space Jam. Gary and I rented You, Me and Dupree. It was a great, quirky date movie. The romantic comedy part for the girls, and Owen Wilson for the guys. Anything with Adam Sandler or Ben Stiller is a sure fire thing that a guy will see. LOL! We also went OUT to see Night at the Museum. I thought it was scarey, according to the previews, but a playground mom told me it wasn't. It WAS a bit intense - but the boys liked it. Warning, the previews before the movie were NOT age appropriate. I hate that. I want to see Bridge to Terabithia next.
I thought for sure that Jake would have a night terror, but he didn't. He's my night terror boy. When he was much younger, he went through a long phase of having them nightly. We eventually started going into his room and shaking him at about 10:00 each night. That was usually before they would happen. And 80% of the time it worked. We found this advice on the internet. It's supposed to keep him from going into too deep a sleep. Eventually he stopped. Either fell out of the habit or outgrew it. Who knows. But he will still have them on the night of a big day. Like the first day of school or when something memorable happens like a strongly imaged movie or a class field trip.
Today the cubscouts had their Blue and Gold banquet. It was fun for the boys. Games, food, badges - all kinds of good fun. Rats, still don't have a camera. The bane of a scrapbooker. Speaking of which, I got a few pages done this past week. I've probably done 4 pages this year. Not great, but something is better than nothing. I think I'm getting my groove back since moving here. However, it's getting a little, you know. I'm kinda tired of doing soccer pages. At least they haven't done soccer in a while, they are in martial arts now - and I have very few pictures of that. Me getting smart! We are hoping to get them into ukulele next time.
