The Mr. has his last exam today…the oral one so we have a babysitter for the boys. She is really more than a babysitter though, a friend. Once she found out it was May 4th, she began to plan a wonderful time with our boys. You see, they LOVE Star Wars. We waited until this last Christmas to let them watch the movies. They were in love. AND I was amazed how good they were for parenting. As we watched Anakin slowly allow the dark side to infiltrate his soul, my boys saw the influence of hate and anger. They saw that both good and evil can coexist in a person, but one must continually pursue the good.
Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.

Deep stuff. So since December all things Star Wars has come into our lives. Today they ate Princess Leia buns.
Do you notice the Star Wars cups?
Then they made some pretzel light sabers.
And the last picture I got was the fight on the trampoline.
I love the way #4 is holding his.
So I will leave you with some wise words…
Truly wonderful the mind of a child is.
