Today I Am Watching True Grit.

And blogging at the same time.  I don't really feel like waxing eloquent tonight, nor am I in the mood for uploading pictures.  I'm just going to type out the highlights of my day and get back to giving the dvd my total attention.  No, I haven't seen True Grit before.  But so far, it's pretty interesting and I don't usually enjoy westerns.

I do a very simplified scripture study/daily devotion with my girls every morning after breakfast.  Ash saw me getting the book down with my scheduled lessons in it, and she got all excited and said, "I want Jesus!" 

Ash ate everything I made for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with gusto and a smile.  Britt threw most of her food on the floor and signed, "all done."

We read Baby Says and then played with blocks.  Ash made all sorts of buildings, houses, and boats with them.  Britt ended up in time out because she wouldn't stop throwing them.

We were going down the driveway, passing the neighbors chicken coop, when Ash yelled out, "kitchens!!"  Hahahahaha!

I didn't eat a whole lot for breakfast or lunch so by dinner I was starved and had low blood sugar.  I ate three bowls of pasta, three corn on the cobs and a spoonful of caramel sauce.  I think I'll make sure I get more to eat in the morning and afternoon to avoid this type of pigging out from happening again. 

Don't forget to enter my last summertime giveaway.  It ends tomorrow (Tuesday) night.

I'd like to know what you thought of True Grit. I've seen both the original and the new one so I had something to compare to.

I'm impressed that you do a daily scripture study with the girls! What a good mommy you are!!

As far as your darling little Britt, I think it's time she has a baseball, I see being a pitcher in her future! HA!

what did you think of True Grit? i watched it but i didn't think it was as great as everyone made it out to be ... i think i would have thought it was better if it hadn't been for all the hype.

i love that Ash said, I want Jesus! that is amazing! :)

when i was younger we had bible studies every morning before school and on the weekends ... as we got older we would be running late and my mom refused to skip bible studies, she would always say it is up to you if you are running late but you will have bible studies before school. we use to get so mad but now i appreciate it and i know i will be doing the same for my future kiddos.

yikes. long comment much?

I was a little disappointed with True Grit. Maybe I was crabby.
