Weekend Update....

Hello all,
I have been without access to blogs, facebook and several other "must see" sites for a week now and it's been torturous! Those stupid computer servers are always doing something silly! Let's see, update, update, update....

1. I have seen 2 movies so far this summer (it's a miracle-we very rarely see movies in the theater). Wolverine was awesome! LOVE Hugh Jackman! Star Trek was also great, set up for a whole new series and Spock got some lip action woo hoo! We're actually planning on seeing more movies in the next few weeks and I think it will end up by the end of the summer our family seeing more movies than we have in entire YEARS.

2. School is winding down and all the little children in my house are beyond happy. This year has been especially tough for the kiddos but they managed to get through it with okay grades (some I'm not happy about but I'll deal). Kiersten is excited because she can sit at home and write all day, Jared is excited simply because he won't have school.

3. We went to see the Kershaw County Show Choir's performance last night. The Choir has a few of the kids from our ward involved and it was a great concert! How those kids sing and dance is beyond me, I can't walk and chew gum at the same time without serious bodily harm to myself or others. Even the boys enjoyed it, which sort of surprised me. Jared was trying to remember all the words to that Officer Krupke song from West Side Story that they guys did last night this morning while he was eating his breakfast. He also told me, "mom, we need to go to more of these things". Hallelujah, pass the tissues, he is part of my genetic makeup! Great job Tony, Sharon, Jessica and Mari!

I think that's it, nothing much going on-that I can remember. Got to be moving on!

peace and love y'all!

I loved last night's performance too! Those young people are so talented and energetic. About the number from "West Side Story," I went to iTunes this morning and downloaded it to the computer...cool tune. I can see why Jared would like it.

Hehe!! I saw Star Trek too! I loved it!!! (And Jim....*whew*....hehehe) But thanks for coming!!! And the lyrics to Officer Krupke...We changed them a little but:

"Dear kindly Sgt. Krpuke,
You gotta understand,
It's just our bringing-upke,
that gets us outta hand,
Our mothers all are junkies,
our fathers all drunks,
Golly Moses, natcherly we're punks!

Gee, Officer Krupke, we're very upset,
We never had the love that every child oughta get,
we ain't no delinquents,
we're misunderstood,
deep down inside us there is good!
There is good, there is good, there is untapped good, like inside, the worst of us is good!

Dear, kindly Judge, Your Honor,
My parents treat me rough,
With all their trials and troubles,
they sure give me enough,
they didn't want to have me, but somehow I was had,
Leapin Lizards! That's why I'm so bad!

Right! Officer Krupke, you're really a square,
this boy don't need a judge, he needs an analyst's care,
it's just his neurosis that outta be curbed,
he's psychologic'ly disturbed! (I'm disturbed!)
We're disturbed, we're disturbed,
We're the most disturbed,
Like we're psychologic'ly disturbed.

My father is a jailbird,
my mom's not fond of me,
my grandpa's always plastered,
my grandma pushes tea,
my sister wears a mustache,
my brother wears a dress!
Goodness gracious! That's why I'm a mess!

Officer Krupke, you're really a slob,
this boy don't need a doctor,
just a good, honest job,
society's played him a terrible trick,And sociologic'ly he's sick!
(I am sick!) We are sick, we are sick, We are sick, sick, sick,
Like we're sociologically sick!

Dear kindly social worker,
They say go earn some dough.
Like be a soda jerker,
Which means like be a shmough.
It's not I'm anti-social,
I'm only anti-work.
Gloryosky! That's why I'm a jerk!
Eek! Officer Krupke, you've done it again.
This boy don't need a job, he needs a year in the pen.
It ain't just a question of misunderstood;
Deep down inside him, he's no good! (I'm no good?!) We're no good, we're no good!
We're no earthly good, Like the best of us is no dang good!

The trouble is he's crazy.
The trouble is he drinks.
The trouble is he's lazy.
The trouble is he stinks.
The trouble is he's growing.
The trouble is he's grown.
Krupke, we got troubles of our own!

Gee, Officer Krupke,
We're down on our knees,
'Cause no one wants a fellow with a social disease.
Gee, Officer Krupke,
What are we to do?
Gee, Officer Krupke,
Krup you!"

Hope that helps Jared a little bit! He should totally jump on the musical bandwagon! It's great!! :)

P.S. It is not Summer yet!!! LOL
It was so much fun seeing everyone in and at the performance...I had a blast. Wished you could have gone for ice cream with us.

Yeah, the new "Trek" is great and Hugh Jackman needs no words. The movie was good too. DH and I went to see Night at the Museum also. It wasn't nearly as good as the first one. I didn't know about the Show Choir thing and I'm really sorry to have missed that.
