DAY 140

Photobucket

"There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice." -John Calvin

Highlights of the day:
  • I went with Little Man's class on a field trip to Iowa City's Old Capital and Coralville's Fossil Gorge and Reservoir Dam. I was excited that Little Man still wanted me to come and even sat by me on the bus. I started the day with 4 class pictures that were totally over-exposed because I had the camera set to the wrong settings. Needless to say, I didn't get many wonderful pics. It got up to the high 80s today and was a beautiful day to be outside. The Fossil Gorge has standing water and more vegetation since last time we went. There were tons of tadpoles and snakes. Little Manwas in heaven.
  • We had the Fords over for the season finale of American Idol. I even let the kids stay up and I was very disappointed with the language and inappropriate parts, such as bikini girl and Kara flashing everyone, even if it was for charity. We were super stoked about Kris' win. I was hoping, but had convinced myself that Adam would win. What a great surprise. I think that the judges had already made up their mind, especially with the critiques from the night before after Adam & Kris' last song. Kris was at least a mile better, but not according to the judges. It was as if they were already saying good -bye to him and preparing him for Adam's win. I also think that any Danny fans out there drifted to Kris, so he took those votes also. Adam is a great performer, but a little odd and theatrical and Kris will be a great recording artist, someone you'll want to listen to on the radio. I've already downloaded a couple of his songs. He's great.
