news from the flesh world  
Weekend was, as per usual, super busy, esp with the last game of Little League and the spring carnival for the kid's school, and b'day parties. making summer plans. etc etc. *deep breath*

We finally watched Despicable Me at carnival movie night, after intending to watch it since it was released. Adorb. (kiddo of course thought the butt xeroxing was the best part. Sometimes he's just so... SEVEN. *sigh*)

I've also been reading him Percy Jackson for bedtime (we got the boxed set from Borders bankruptcy for practically nothing). It's funny - when I write, I do the same thing Riordan does, putting few "he said" tags in it. But reading aloud, I find I have to put in more than the text actually has because I just kind of suck at doing too many voices (poor Grover has evolved a bit of a southern accent, IDEK). But we're enjoying the book so far. I think he may soon be impatient with the pace and want to read it on his own, which is good since I want him to transition to bigger chapter books, but it's still nice mommy-kid time. They grow up so fast, it's true. :(
