    World Cup Final
    takes a back seat to seeing Pirates II. We're actually going to see a double feature - Pirates then DaVinci code. Perhaps the theater will be empty? We're leaving the house around the time the game starts.

    I'll call Thing Two when I get home, and ask for an update on the game - she's been following everything, watching every game, and updating us on what's to come when we talk.

    We bought the girls some books last night to send to their place in the middle of the country. Mostly used books, but a couple new ones - including Thing One's required book for the summer - Where the Red Fern Grows. I really loved that book. I remember most distinctly, though, when my sister read the book. Apparently, it was around the time that she was in 5th grade, and she was sitting on a brown chair reading the end, and she put the book down, and just BAWLED. not a quiet sobbing, not a gentle stream of tears trickling down her cheek, but just CRYING out loud, so upset over the death of the dogs.

    I actually had always wanted to read it TO Thing One, outloud, but that activity, as she's getting older, has come so near to an end, and now it's required -- it can't wait for us to find down time. I hope she loves the book. (If not, then I know I'm raising a foolish child.)
