Despicable Gene

Everyone is doing great and we have been making the most of the time together before late August hits and the world gets turned upside down again.  Saturday, Claire and I went swimming at the Y which was awesome.  On Sunday, Matthew and I kicked over to the model aircraft field by our house and sucked down a few packs of chewies while watching model aircraft guy do his thing.  There were probably 30 model airplanes and the mood was pretty relaxed except for Matthew's screams and fist pumps when a plane would take off and land.  Nicole and I also took Claire on Sunday to see Despicable Me in 3D.  Overall, not a despicable movie...the 3D was cool and we got free popcorn.  Definitely better than the movie described below.

Claire has gotten pretty good on her iPad...so much so that she can go into Netflix and queue up her own movies.  As you can see from the email that I received below, this can have disasterous results.  While I did not view the entire Care Bears flick, I did see enough of it to know that if the DVD suffered some horribly violent death, at least some other poor family may be saved from its dibilitating effects.

Matthew had a clinic appointment yesterday and got some platelettes which appear to have been badly needed as his legs are getting pretty badly bruised.  That withstanding, he is completely crazy and has tons of energy. 

I am putting together a Team Matthew soundtrack with some sweet beats.  Hoping to get this together in the next week or so.  Stay tuned.

I think you keep making this blog fancier on me:-)

I feel your pain. The four-year-old at our house has been on a Care Bears DVD borrowing spree at the local library. There's a million of 'em, and they are uniformly awful. (Although, the first couple of original full length theatrical Care Bears movies at least have the redeeming feature of music by John Sebastian.)
