There has been quite a buzz going around our quiet little town lately. Steven Spielberg and J. J. Abram's new movie Super 8 is opening in theaters across the country today. The movie's young star, Joel Courtney, was raised here in Moscow, Idaho. Not only that, but he still lives here (when he isn't on international promotional tours), attends the small private school that my husband went to, and he and his family go to our church's sister church. I actually sat right next to him at a volley ball game last spring. It's kind of fun having such a big deal come from our little town. We're all excited for Joel and the Courtney family, and wonder what will be next! Here's a fun interview with Joel that was in the Wall Street Journal.
In other news, my baby is still just as cute as ever. It is becoming more and more obvious that she's picking up vocabulary. Here is her favorite word.
She is also very helpful. Especially with things like doing the dishes.
