Perhaps we should rethink her movie choices

We recently went on a road trip and started the bad habit of the girls having a 'screen time' pretty much every time they got in the van. Between their iPods and the van's DVD player, they've been happily plugged in. (I'll be breaking this habit soon, don't worry... LOL)

The other morning on our drive across town, the two in the back were happily watching a movie on the DVD player and wearing headphones to hear it. A was beside me watching Lord of the Rings on her iPod. I was listening to the radio. Over the radio, I could hear what sounded like a battle scene on A's iPod. So I asked her if they were fighting. They were.

Then I said, "You know, you really should turn it down when they're fighting and you don't need to try so hard to listen to conversation."

A-"They're talking too. They're talking in Elvish."

Me--"Honey, you don't understand Elvish, so why do you need it so loud?"

A--"Not yet. And, there are words at the bottom of the screen."

Me--"So you turned it up to read the words??"

A--"Um yeah."

Me--"Honey, if you learn Elvish, you're going to be labelled as one of those goofy homeschooled kids."

A--"Too late." :grins:

Me--"Well, you're called to be set apart as a Christian, not as a goofy homelearned kid."

A--"Oh."

Busy, busy, dreadfully busy...

Oh. Life's been crazy. For a recap....

I did some sewing. I got the biggest order of my simple little business's life. 16 Cozy Carseat Covers later--I was done.

Then we had a sick dog. This is how she spent an entire morning. She was truly pitiful. We realized just how awful she must've felt when she didn't even get up to greet her favorite human, A. After a trip to the vet, a huge chunk of change, some x-rays and medicines, she started to act normal.
Then someone had a birthday. She's 8. Wow.

All done!

A bit over two years ago, I started a project. Wow...two years is a long time! But... FINALLY.... I finished that project! Yay me!



And I think a certain young child is very happy with the finished result. :)
