Here's the funniest part of the story. She was following along and adapted the instructions for the craft out of a book we borrowed from the library. Midway through the afternoon...she comments in an off the cuff manner...."This book must've been published in the 80's or they wanted the kids/models to look like they wee in the 80's for some reason because the outfits are just horrible, Mom. They are all in bright blue, yellow, red you know.....and green."
LOL! My girls has a distaste for primary colors...especially on models.

Bria's writing a short for his film class.
His professor assigned Rebel Without A Crew by Robert Rodriguez...which he's already read twice. She also touched on The Hero's Journey during the first class....which he's quite familiar with.
I think he's thinkin' dear ole Mom and Dad might just have a clue to life right about now.

I'm in love with this day for it's historical significance...and all that it means for our young nation. I'm sober in regards to the ideological shifts which will be ushered in. I find hope in the
Lord...who has divine purposes working behind every scene on the world's stage.
