Being around only grandparents all day every day gets a little boring for a 13 year old. Maybe she will have a little more excitement over the next few days. Today Amy and kids came to pick her up and take her to their home until Thursday afternoon. She was very, very excited about being at their house. Good luck, Amy, having 4 kids around!
On Saturday we took her to the movie "Up". We rarely go to the theatre because we rarely see a movie worth the money. But this gave us a chance to go to a kid's movie. It was really quite good. But expensive! Price of three adult tickets - $27 (including fee for buying online); 1 large popcorn and 2 small drinks - $14. Over $40 to see a one-hour-thirty-six-minute movie. (I could buy nearly four ounces of monkey-picked oolong tea for $40!) We had a good time, though, and that's what it is all about.
