A favorite book has emerged amongst stiff competition. Green Eggs and Ham, or Egg Ham as Atticus calls it, is now required reading before bed. I assume everyone is familiar with this Dr. Seuss classic, so I'll spare you the summary.
I am especially happy with Atticus being able to fill in any blanks or pauses we leave while reading aloud with the correct verbiage, i.e. house, mouse, dark, tree, and so on. He's quite sharp that boy, and he will read it here or there, he will read it anywhere.

I've tweaked the ol' blog a little this morning:
*many of you are probably wondering why much of the text is so large in the sidebar, that is because I am using fonts that you don't have- to solve this I have included a link on the bottom right that has many free and safe downloads to help you view this site better
*I have added a permanent link to the photo album of our continuing trips to Disneyland during its 50th celebration- it is under the videos
*our good friend Champ has joined the ranks of blogger and I have linked to his page as well

This is how a goofball spends his day @ Disneyland- smiles and candy. The golden ears were handed out free to all guests upon entering the park.
Atticus learned all kinds of new words on this trip. He was very keen on "ride" and wanted to go on every one: pooh ride, pirate (also a new word) ride, fish ride, train ride. Another new word that he got to use often but didn't care for was "wait". Not a favorite.

Not much new in our little world. Atticus is talking more and more. Our friend Jen took some great photos over this past weekend and I'll post them in the next couple of days. Aunt TT is coming for a visit. We will be going to see the mouse on Disneyland's actual 50th birthday. I don't know if there will be anything crazy there or not, we shall see.

I haven't seen the feed yet of Brian Wilson playing in Berlin as part of the LIVE 8 concerts yesterday, but I hope that he played his song Love & Mercy. I assume my reasoning is obvious. Despite the evils of this world, of which there are a terrible many, there is still much good. My son, who is healthy and happy, he is the best kind of good- innocent, pure and inspiring. He inspires me to take heed of the world's injustice and fight for ways to bring it peace. Love & mercy.
Don't forget that while we sit in our air conditioned homes or sip umbrella garnished drinks poolside on warm summer days that someone is dying. A child is dying. Everyday 30,000 children die from the plague of poverty. That is one every three seconds!
We fight lots of evils, but this one is actually beatable. Children should not die from wanting. Lend your support to encourage the G8 to be what it claims- great.
