The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe

Not only did we finish the last Harry Potter book, we also delved into the Narnia series this week.  We even read the first book, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, all in one day!  You should see the acrobatics this kid does while I'm reading!  He leaps from couch to table to couch and climbs across the couch backs and balances on the arms and bounces back and forth across the cushions.  This doesn't stop the whole time I'm reading and he usually goes at least 30 minutes if not a full hour before taking a break for something else.  We are not buying new furniture until his listening is less active! (Ha, that reminded me this is not the usual meaning of "active listening"!)  I have already sewn pieces of both couches back together.  

Other things to share:
This week's Objectivist Round Up.
Cute antics:

Asking for whiskey at the restaurant and laughing.  He hates the stuff and is developing quite the odd since of humor.

Complaining about bitter berries, "Too many blueberries are grimace-berries."

Declaring, "I'm a songaramus." (Someone who can guess what musical / movie songs come from.)

Informing me when he came to difficult spot in his homework, "It's time for helping sister."

Taking a gasping breath while playing computer games and letting out a long, groaning, "I.... aaaaammmmmmmm.... a goooooood.... boyyyyy!" (Yes, he's an odd duck, but I did mention that I agree.)

Well prepared for the theatre when I came down in the morning... we did convince him to turn the shirt around before going to see "Guys and Dolls".
