little review

Poem for Saturday

Adam got home at lunchtime from three days of outdoor education, hoarse, muddy and quite cheerful -- apparently the food is quite good at Summit Lake, there was enough of an ice storm for an improvised snowball fight, they had s'mores without having to sit outdoors in freezing temperatures at a bonfire, his best friend was in his cabin and there was a reptile show with several snakes including a Burmese python that they got to touch. And he survived at Predator & Prey even though he was a herbivore, who often get eaten by the carnivores. Of course everything he brought with him had to go into the laundry as soon as he got home, so my afternoon was mostly comprised of washing and folding it all, plus writing a review of "Contagion", a fun episode if not a really profound one.

We had dinner with my parents and my father's brother who is visiting from Los Angeles, whom I think felt neglected that we left fairly early but Adam wanted to be home after three days away and Daniel has a chorus concert early tomorrow morning at a local bookstore that is going to require us all to be out of the house at 9 a.m. So we watched part of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and sent the kids off to bed early, then watched a bit of the Appalachian State-Delaware championship game (Blue Hens, hee -- I was hoping they would play the Spiders). Oh, and I got lots of holiday cards in the mail! Yay!
