I thought I’d like to dust off my keyboard and let you all know I haven’t fallen into a Florida sinkhole. I just needed to cut myself a healthy portion of slack and not pressure myself to sit in front of an empty screen and be all, OH LOOK AT ALL THAT WHITE SPACE. Especially when I got nothin’.
The honest truth is homeschooling 3 kids, with one in high school, got a whole lot harder this year. And what with ALL THE SOCIAL, I hardly have time to string together real words. Next time someone quizzes me about my children’s potential lack of socialization because of homeschooling, I’m going to punch them in the throat.
Which reminds me. All three kids are doing swim team this year. Yes. Three. This means that Jensen, who swore he’d NEVER be on swim team because he’d rather
die catch lizards during the girls’ practice time, is on the swim team. And loving it. He’s still on lizard restriction, so I’m sure that swayed his decision. His fear of being bored at swim practice.
We call him the bullet.
And now I need to do a little bragging. One of Fiddledaddy’s jobs is that of actor. Last Fall he was able to travel to Clearwater, Florida to film a
small cameo role in Dolphin Tale 2, which just opened last weekend. He plays a morning show host who appears about three quarters of the way through. The casting breakdown described this role as “chirpy shallow comedic morning show host.” I think he nailed it. He’s adorable.
He had an opportunity to attend the Clearwater premiere a couple of weeks ago. I knew it would be a very late night, and I don’t do late very well, so we determined that his date should be Emme. I don’t think she slept for 3 days before the event. So exciting. And it was her first time to wear heals.
On the blue carpet…
The really big stars attended the Los Angeles premiere a few days prior, but the younger stars were in attendance in Clearwater. Emme got to meet a lot of the sweet people that her dad worked with. It was such a great working experience for him.
I took the rest of my crew to see the film with some of my friends and their kids on opening weekend. I think my favorite moment was looking over at my son, sitting with his favorite friends, beaming when his daddy came on the screen.
We really are so proud of this movie and Fiddledaddy. It is an awesome family film. I give it two thumbs up and a whoop-whoop. 🙂 #notbiased
