Well, I didn't have to disect anything yesterday. YAY! :) The friend that does the experiments with us got the flu. :(

We played frisbee today and had a very fun time. I wasn't going to play, but then I changed my mind. I'm glad I did. :)

Last night we decided we wanted something to do, so we went to Blockbuster to get a movie. Jo walked up to the counter and asked the guy if he could tell us where we'd find 'Penelope'. The guy looked at us funny and asked "Is that with an E or an I?". Not sure where the guy would have put the I, Jo said " E." The guy typed it into his computer and said "We don't carry that movie." Jo was confused. We knew they had it, we just didn't know where it was. "Oh.". A second guy had just finished taking care of a customer, so the first guy asked him "How do you spell 'Penelope'?". The second guy got the funniest look on his face and said "P E N E L O P E" slowly and then, even slower, said "Pe-ne-lo-pe". I was trying so hard not to laugh as the first guy typed it into the computer. All of a sudden he went "Oh, we do have it!". :) He was kind enough to run get it for us and we enjoyed our movie night. Although the moviemakers should have thought of a way to do it without the witch. :( But, witches and some swearing aside, it was pretty good. And boy did that writer have a good sense of humor. :)

I'll leave you with a picture. :)

Hey Sarah!
Your frisbee playing sounds fun!

Your story is so funny! I have to say.. I've had some trouble myself, with that name Penelope. I used to think it was pronounced...Pen-e-LOPE. (as in, rhyming with 'cantaloupe') *lol* I'm glad I finally figured out how to read it correctly!

So was PE-NE-LO-PE good? That was a hilarious did get a chuckle out of me...although I have heard that boys are better at math than spelling. :) Have a great week! Love You!!
