on the beach

I'm writing this on Mike's blacberry, so there are sure to be many errors. The family has all headed back to Meme and Grampa Carlie's for showers and brownies, and I'm alone here on the beach waiting for the full moon to rise. It is now to dark to read and thanks to glorious technology, I can blog instead. Speaking of technology... I have made some great technological findings in the past two days. First I learned abou from Tiffany's blog and I found Family Ties on there. We will be watching a lot of that when we get to the 80s in history. First is the 70s (this week) and we'llbe watching the Wonder Years...we have that on DVD. The other find I am even more excited about...does anyone remember watching a movie in school about a teacher in Iowa that did an experiment with her 3rd graders where she said blue eyed kids were better than brown eyed kids to teach them about discrimination? Well I found it on You Tube... Search Jane Elliot--no links here again I'm on the blackberry. The moon still hasn't come up, and it is REALLY DARK!! We listened to the Vietnam War in Story of the World today and the big kids will interview Grampa Carlie who fought in it tomorrow. We also want to talk to them about Kennedy's assassination etc. I sooo miss "the oldie" relatives because after studying the last 100 years we have so many questions for them. We were blessed to have them all as long as we did and did asks lots of questions and have some of that on video...priceless. If you have older relatives cherish them and ask lots of questions. The moon is up now and it is RED it looks like mars. Speaking of the moon, I think Jonathan and Madi are going to do some beyond five in a row this summer. The first book we plan to do is a biography of Neil Armstrong. OK I'm leaving the beach.

Happy Mother's Day!! I'm so happy to be surrounded by so many great mothers.
