Mica can listen to music in some classes if they are doing computer work.

He decided to listen to something different. It kind of surprises, and makes me proud that he went outside of the box when it came to what he chose to listen to.

What did he choose to listen to? Katy Perry's Roar. I'm not a Katy Perry fan, but will listen to her if she's on the radio. I still like that he chose something different.

As he was listening, his headphones came out of the computer, and the whole class could hear Katy Perry's song playing really loud. Mica was panicking. He didn't know what to do. Finally he pressed the mute button. The whole class was laughing. 

I'm glad that Mica found it funny, and laughed too. 

What's an embarrassing moment that you had when you were in school?

Avengers: Infinity War

No spoil alerts here! 

Our house is divided. Mica loves superhero movies, Isaak likes them, Travis and I are tired of them. Travis took the boys to see Black Panther. Otherwise my older sister has taken the boys to see many superhero movies. 

For the last 2 weeks we've listened to Mica go on and on about Avengers: Infinity War.

Jimmy Kimmel had Avengers characters on all week.

This morning I had enough of Avengers: Infinity War.

Me: Mica Hulk dies in that movie. 

Mica: No! Don't tell me spoilers Mom! How do you know anyway?

Me: They've been on Jimmy Kimmel all week long. 

Mica Annoyed With Me: Really Mom! You're messing up the movie for me! 

Travis: Mica Mom is just messing with you.

I have no clue what happens in the movie!

Later on during breakfast:

Mica: What's in that bag?

Me: It's a surprise. 

Isaak looking in the bag: Wow that is cool!

Me: Isaak you shouldn't of looked in the bag! It's a surprise!

At the end of the day:

Mica thought for sure the bag had Avengers: Infinity War tickets. He was pissed when he found out the bag just had my sample meds in it from the doctor's office.

Don't feel too bad for Mica. He's going to Avengers: Infinity War with Aunt Angela next weekend. 

Are you a fan of superhero movies, or getting sick of them like me?

Jesus Christ Superstar

When the boys were sick we watched most all of Orphan Black. The boys loved it! There were a few scenes we had to fast forward, but for the most part it was ok for them to watch.

If you've never seen it, Tatiana Maslany acts out 9 different main rolls. She does such a fantastic job! All her characters are so different. The show is written well! I like that they sum it up. So many shows now a days don't end because they get taken off air before they do.

Tatiana Maslany is in the play Jesus Christ Superstar. The boys thought it was crazy I knew the song.

Guess who got Jesus Christ Superstar to watch on a movie night from the library? Yours truly! We'll see if the boys will give it a chance.

Do you like musicals? What's your favorite?

WW: Plastic Bags {Linky}

It takes 500 years for a plastic bag to decompose.

This person was covered with plastic bags that just one person used throughout one year. Eye opening, yet sad.

Here in Omaha, Nebraska this is a hot topic. The mayor wants to ban plastic bags. So many people don't get why the ban is needed. If only they did their research. Do you have a ban on plastic bags where you live?

Happy Earth Day

Yesterday Earth Day was celebrated around here more than today. We had a big Earth Day event at Elmwood Park here in Omaha. 

Lil' Green could wiggle his ears, and made his nose go in and out.

I have to admit that I wasn't exactly excited to go at first. I knew Travis would be busy the whole time. It was grey and cold outside. It ended up being fun after all.

Travis has been helping out with a nonprofit organization called Omaha Permaculture. In connection to Omaha Permaculture he started and did a demo of a stone carving.

We helped him set up. I broke his table in the process. The bar just snapped. I took that as a clue to go elsewhere. 

Let's Climb a Tree!

Isaak couldn't wait to climb a tree. Travis promised that he'd be able to climb one. 

Isaak was so excited. He usually hides his smiles lately. Right before climbing the tree he was all smiles. I wish I could have gotten passed the caution tape to capture the boys more.

Isaak was up first. He was told to make a knot about every 4 feet.

After that moment it was hard to get photos of Isaak. He went up pretty fast! The way the lighting was I could only capture a dark Isaak up in the trees.

I know he was hanging literally by a branch, but this photo looked like he was getting killed. It wasn't so bad when I brightened it up a bit.

Isaak went right on up to the top.

Mica on the other hand went up 3/4 of the way. He kept perching in a spot, and wouldn't move. Much of while he was climbing Isaak and I went back to be with Travis. We could still see Mica from where we were.

At the end of their tree climbing adventure the boys got a free t-shirt.


Then we went to go visit a lot of booths. We got a ton of "loot". Isaak in particular was super excited about it! He also got a butterfly milk weed plant, a bean seed necklace, and a frisbee.

I liked the 2 back bags. They are insulated.

It's funny to me that I got more pictures on Earth Day, than I did on Easter this year. Easter and Christmas are hard because we always celebrate when it's dark outside.

Did you do anything for Earth Day?
