I think I’m going to take Emelia to see the American Girl movie today. I think. She has a little friend spending the night so it will pretty much depend on if they go to sleep at a reasonable hour and wake up early enough to go. I heard the movie was pretty good. Emelia has another friend (Audrey) who she spent the night with Sunday after church. Her mother is from Germany and hasn’t lived in the US long. Her husband is now working in Germany so she is left here for six months with five children. Four of which are wild little boys! I thought little Audrey could use a girl day :).


This evening is night one of the teen vbs type event. Tonight there will be a really dynamic speaker and crafts and outside games. Tomorrow night is a Polaroid scavenger hunt. I am supposed to drive a team around. Friday is carnival night and they have rented a lot of inflatables and have fun stuff planned. I think it will be fun. My friend Julie is in town this week (and next)… she dropped by today and visited just for a few minutes. I think she is going with me tonight and then her oldest daughter will go with us the other nights. My friend Melody’s son Matthew may go with us Thursday night too!


We babysat mom and dad’s dog “mojo,” last night. They were out of town. Mom still is. Mojo gets nervous when he is away from dad and sticks to me like glue. This is what he looks like …

He’s a sweetie. I wasn’t too sad when dad picked him up last night. He (dad) also ate dinner with us.


I’ve got some bloggy meetings planned in the next couple of weeks. I’m so excited! I’ll take my camera and tell you all about it when it happens.




Horaayy..there are 10 comment(s) for me so far ;)


Let us know how the movie is, if you go. I have been wanting to take my oldest to see it, but I just haven’t found the time.

By the way, I think Mojo is the cutest darn dog ever!! 🙂

I haven’t heard too much about the movie. But it does sound like a great movie for young girls.

I hope you have a great time at VBS–sounds like some wonderful activities are planned.

Mojo looks really cute.

I can’t wait to see the “Kit” movie! I’ve loved all the American Girl movies enough to buy them, and I collect some of the dolls, too! 🙂

Wish I had someone to take to the movie, sounds fun.
I’ve been a driver for one of those picture scavenger hunts at church, SO much fun! I might have had more fun than the kids.

Our eldest, f, loves American Girl. I wish they’d show the film here. It may come out on a DVD next winter! Have fun.

I didn’t know there was a teen VBS. What a great idea!

I thought about taking both my girls to see that movie, too- I took my oldest to the American Girls store in Chicago when she was just 7. It was a mother/daughter overnight trip with some moms from my church and it was so much fun! We’ve moved out West since then and I sure miss the church and the fun things we planned together! Good memories. Hope you enjoyed the movie!
