Chad enjoyed doing this science project with his dad. Because of this science project and the Pinewood Derby, my dear hubby is behind in his homework, but he is glad (despite the stress) that he was able to make the time for his son, as am I. Chad and his dad enjoy this type of bonding, even if Chad didn't place in the Science Fair and he got almost dead last in the Pinewood derby. Though I am pleased to say that our car was Chaddy built and designed under the direction of his dad. Tyson only did a few things that Chad could not.
Chad also earned his arrow of light and I was sad that I couldn't be there to see the ceremony, cause I heard that it was awesome, but I was with my little dancer who is gearing up for her first recital.
Anyways, I took my oldest 3 kids and 3 of Chad's best buds to see it. It was interesting having 4, eleven to twelve year old boys in the car. I think I have heard enough about flatulence, peeing, and acid gas to last me a lifetime, but I also laughed harder than I have in a long time (only at a few things).
I was very disappointed that the movie wasn't like the book for the most part. They left out 2 of the main antagonists and put in some blatant sexual innuendos that we could have definitely done without. I also think Hades should have been played differently and by someone differently and WHY did they have to put Persephone in there, she wasn't even there in the first book? Other than all that I enjoyed it. The guy who played Percy, was awesome and was so PERCY. I think that if I saw it again I would enjoy it more because when I went into the theater I had just finished the series so it was all fresh in my mind.
Laney is now 10 months old and is all over the place. She now says "Baba" for bottle and "Ma" for more. And the girls were all tickled pink when Grandma gave them the pajamas that she had been sewing for them. Lately this is how Alyssa poses for the camera...goofy. One day I will get a good smile gain. At least I hope. :)
