Thing One has learned 5 new katas (sets of memorized moves in karate). Thing Two has learned all his stuff too. They will both be testing again this week. Thing One for orange belt: Thing Two for yellow.
In 2 months Thing Two has grown 3/4 of an inch. I thought he looked taller when he got back from camp so I had to check. Thing One had grown as well.
The amount of food the two of them consume could fuel a small army.

I watched The Notebook ~ gah, THAT was an emotional wringer.

We have mountains of the never-ending mundane and few possibly earth-shaking situations in the works. Life just keeps happening, hm?

I too watched The Notebook a month or so ago, boy that movie tore me apart.

these boys of ours will eat us out of house and home and we can listen to the grow.

i must be cold hearted. i thought the notebook was an awful movie that was poorly done.

Thing Two will arrive 7 minutes after Thing One. Am I right?

D1 watched The Notebook dozens of times after we bought it and she cried every time.

I hope the anticipated earthquakes are manageable.

The food bill for three growing teenage daughters isn't pretty, either. There's just as much as boys, but it comes in the low-fat and low-carb varieties.

Woo Hoo, go THINGS!!!!

I can't bring myself to watch the Notebook. Maybe someday. :)

Hang on tight! I hope the ride is fun. :)

I am a crier anyway so of course I made a spectacle of myself while watching The Notebook, thank goodness I was alone.

My son will be 11 in September and he is growing lots as well and eating lots too. Have a good day!

Um, what's going on up near you? Your neck of the woods was on the local news twice yesterday. Be safe!
