I know it has been a little while since I last posted and I apologize. We haven’t purchased a new computer in I don’t know how many years, and Sione found a new computer for $300 that was “10 times better than our old one” according to him. It is MUCH faster, that is very apparent. Hopefully we are through with our computer troubles, at least for a while.
As updates go all of my children but one are sick right now. Alena is the one. Losahina had been giving kisses on the mouth to Faith, unnoticed until it was too late. Poor Faith is doing pretty well so far, but I hate hearing her cough. I have told all of the children they are not to kiss Faith on the mouth since she was born, and I had never seen Losahina do it before. *sigh* Losahina has been pretty miserable lately due to the cold, so I am not looking forward to the peak of this cold for Faith as well. Hopefully I will not get it so I will be at the top of my game while I am taking care of them.
Our ward is having a talent show in March, so my children have been brushing up on their polynesian dancing. I have been working on it some as well, but I’m not sure I am going to perform. 😉 The cutest moment so far was watching Julie try to teach Losahina how to dance to Sophisticated Hula. So sweet!
Collin received his Bear at Pack Meeting on Wednesday night. Now we can work on more of the arrow points and see what he can earn there before his birthday. I don’t like how long it has taken us for him to earn his Bear, so I think I will be a bit more aggressive with his Webelos. I took it easy with his Bear because his den leader asked me to, but I like to have things done earlier when I am not stressed about a deadline.
I read Atlas Shrugged recently and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I agreed with parts regarding the economy, but her relativism/objectivism really, really bothers me. It seems to be quite relevant today with all of the junk that President Obama is pulling. It was a very depressing book for me. Very 1984-esque in how I felt reading it, only with an ending that had hope. Now I am reading A Thomas Jefferson Education Home Companion.
Stand for Something.
