This week, Sam and Max both got their school reports and they are brilliant, so they say they want to go to the videogame arcade and race virtual cars and play in a virtual band. I said yes. Chas and I will rock the high-speed air hockey table. I can still beat him half the time, HAH!
Chas has been working really hard to catch up at his awesome new school, and he says that Latin is easy peasy. He's all "Cibus in culina!" (food in kitchen!) Sam went for his Induction Day there Wednesday, and had a blast, meeting other boys who have read the same books as he has. He's looking forward to next term.
Chas can almost do a back-flip on the trampoline. He needs tips. I say, 'don't arch your back', but I could be wrong since I could never do a back flip. Any suggestions?
Sam had a few buddies over for a birthday cake-and-icecream session yesterday. A few of my buddies came too! It made us all wish the Summer Holidays would hurry up. We had pineapple upside-down cake (delicious!) and the kids drummed and guitared and played DS and jumped on the trampoline. They kicked a ball around too. Come on, summer holidays!
My mum and dad, and Ailis and Dan, sent Sam a super-awesome video camera! It's yellow! Full review to come!
You may visit Chas' new website for a video (taken with the regular camera) of Schrödinger the snake EATING A BABY MOUSE! It's really good, and slightly icky. The site has also got instructions on how to make a snare, in case you are ever lost in the wilderness. You never know.
I know that we can all look forward to many, many videos and photos from Chas and Sam, and best of all, they will not be on my camera! I will be pleased when I download pictures and there aren't 657 images of a lego. man. moo. ving. one. leg. and. then. the. other.... and. then. a. car. comes. along. and. runs. him. over.... and. there. is. blood. on. the. ground. of. lego. land.... EXCITING STUFF, this stop-action photography.
I have homework assignments, and articles to write, and writer's block. Which always happens when I'm supposed to write about something specific. I need to be more disciplined. Going back to school is HARD! But I am setting a good example, aren't I?
Have a great weekend!
