Tell 'Em Large Marge Sent You!

"On this very night, forty-two years ago, along this same stretch of road in a dense fog just like this. I saw the worst accident I ever seen. There was this sound, like a garbage truck dropped off the Empire State Building…"

     We saw this post today, a reference to the movie "Pee Wee's Big Adventure,"and we laughed about it.  Daddy and his sister used to watch this movie a lot, but that was a long time ago.  We might watch again soon - it's okay for Madison to watch, but she hasn't been interested yet.  Daddy loved this movie though.

    Madison was at ballet tonight, a practice that ran later.  They were setting up for "Into Grimm's Woods," which is no doubt based on "Into the Woods," which we're not exactly huge fans of.  It was okay.  It just took about twenty minutes for that song about going into the woods to end.  It was like, okay, the woods are right there, people.  Just walk in them already!

     During practice, Madison was taking pictures of all her ballet friends and using the latest elf app.  It puts their faces on an elf's body, and soon about five or six of Madison's friends were all dancing around on her iPad.

     The weather is warming up outside, believe it or not.  You could almost walk around outside without a jacket on - I think it's just that we're so accustomed to the colder temperatures of late.  Tonight, Daddy was at KidPak, and we were talking about fasting, about prayer too.  There is this great visual to help you remember who to pray for, one that Daddy was sharing with kids.  Here it is below - it made for an easier class as far as a flow goes.

It was a good day today.  Daddy will be starting his class tomorrow, and is a little nervous about this.  It's teaching college kids, although I already know a few of the students in the classroom.  They'll go easy on me.  But in the meantime, I've been sort of scripting it all out, because that's how I work.  We'll see how it all unfolds.  Tomorrow promises to be another busy day though, with that class, and a KidPak service down at Hebron Academy, followed by yet another ballet class for Madison.  You'd think that now that December is over with, things will calm down a bit.  But nope!  That calendar is just filled with things we're doing upcoming.  

That's okay though - we'll tackle it all one day at a time!
