Not sure if you’ve heard yet, but Michael Jackson died last week. Yeah, I’m serious. I can’t believe that no one is reporting on it (banging head against the wall). We did have an MJ music immersion for the family last weekend…everyone loves “Beat It.”
Albert Pujols continues to be both an amazing ballplayer (with last night’s two homeruns, he’s only the 7th player in history to hit 30 homers before July 1) and an amazing person. Check out his work with Compassion in his native Dominican Republic. I love that you get the sense that he’d be doing these things whether he was wealthy or not, and even with the wealth, whether there was publicity for it or not. I like him.
In current events in our own home, our two oldest children tried to burn down our house last night by putting their new “pool noodle” swords up to the light in their bedroom. The lights on their fan get extremely hot, and Luke’s sword melted to one of the bulbs and was smoking pretty badly. Seriously, kids can turn anything into a weapon of mass destruction. New rule (that I didn’t think I had to make): nothing is allowed to touch a light bulb.
I got to meet blogger Sara and her family this week! It was really fun for me to meet someone that I feel like I know because I’ve read her blog for so long. She was just as sweet in person as she seems on her blog…I’m so glad that Heather and Sara let me crash their reunion (they’re college friends).
