Wednesday night there was a chance for community members/parents to see him. He was really fantastic. I think he understands (more than many) that kids who hurt other kids are themselves hurt. Needless to say, Queen Hormone cried at least 5 separate times during the presentation. If you ever have a chance to see/hear him, I highly recommend it.
Who's the most inspiring speaker you've ever heard? Did the experience it change you for a few minutes? Days? Or forever?

They live in a golf cart community not too far from Orlando called The Villages. Click on the link and the theme song alone will provide you with a chuckle. I've learned that everybody knows somebody who lives in The Villages!
Who do you know that lives in The Villages?
3. Both boys have opted out of the theater program they did this fall (one they both LOVED, by the way) and I am feeling compelled to insist they choose SOMETHING to participate in for the spring. Elliott has agreed to try instructional level baseball (shudder... I don't see that going well!) but Tommy has yet to choose an outlet.
Do you insist that your kids participate in some kind of extra curricular activity? (Those of you who have kids that want to do EVERYTHING, please keep it to yourselves. I can't handle hearing about how much more interesting/interested your kids are than mine. Sorry. This Mom is not prepared for feeling any more inept than she already is. Just a simple, "Yes, I would insist they choose something" or "No, they shouldn't be forced into something, it will only cause arguments" is what I'm looking for. Thanks!)
4. What's the deal with bananas? Why can we never buy the right number? This week, a huge surplus. So many that I can't even think about banana bread or muffins because it's just THAT overwhelming. Next week, we will be out by Tuesday morning. I understand this is a dumb "First World Problem" but it does baffle me.
What do you always miscalculate at the grocery store?
5. I went for a long walk on Tuesday and felt like a total rock star. Musta injured myself patting my own back because my sacrum has been killing me for the rest of the week. When will I learn?
When's the last time you overestimated your physical capabilities? To what end?
