If you haven’t seen Wall-e yet, go now! It is so, so, so cute! I think anyone of any age would enjoy this movie. My favorite part was the beginning when Wall-e was just cruisin around doing his thing. He is so adorable! I love Wall-e. I think Kevin is okay with the fact that I have a crush on a robot. Novalie was so concerned about Wall-e’s pet bug the whole movie. We kept telling her that he was safe and Wall-e would go back and find his pet bug. Thank goodness he did or we would have had a broke hearted little girl!
I have spent a lot -I mean A LOT- of time this week playing Littlest Pet Shop Go Fish game. Novalie got it for her birthday from my sister and I forgot about it until a week ago and we got it out and played it. And played it and played it and played it all week long. I am not complaining about playing it, I rather enjoy playing it with Novalie, but I just wanted to get across how much we have played it. I couldn’t even count the times if I tried. It reminds me of when Novalie was 3 and we got Candy Land for the first time and we played that game 50 times a day. Novalie is very good at Go Fish. I have yet to beat her, honestly. I am not one to let Novalie win. I never have been. We play fair, by the rules and sometimes she wins and sometimes I win. But, Go Fish I can not beat her. Not one game have I won. Maybe tomorrow. I hope Novalie continues to like playing board games because I love them and it is a special thing we do lots of together. Notice the snacks in the picture? We can’t play games without snacks!
We had another busy week that flew by! Novalie didn’t have any activities this week. June and the first 2 weeks of July were jam packed with activities which she and I both enjoyed, but the rest of the summer we are going to swim and get ready for kindergarten! So, we did just that this week. We went swimming, played with lots of friends, went to several parks, played tennis. Today, Novalie helped me with some yard work and she helped me wash the car. We have just been busy doing fun, typical summer things!
It is no secret that Novalie and I read a lot of books. So, we signed up for the summer reading program at our local little Albion library (and in Pullman too). We read everyday like we normally do, about 1 1/2 hours. So, we filled out our time sheets and handed them in each week to Shannon (the librarian, who is also in our ward and also a great friend). The summer reading program for the Albion library was over today and Shannon had a little celebration at the library. It was time to announce the top reader and give out prizes. And guess who the top reader was? NOVALIE! Way cool. She got a free wristband for the county fair to go on all the rides! Way to go Novalie!
I got another great surprise today. Tamsin is letting me house sit her treadmill until her and David have a place for it again. I am SO excited! I did a quick mile on it tonight for a test run. It felt great! I am going to start strong on Monday. I can’t wait to feel healthy again! Thank you Tamsin!
This turned out kinda long! All because I had to blog about Wall-e! Did I mention that I love him? Go see it!
