"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them."

No pics today, though I wish I had thought to take them at Dora's friends Birthday Party!)

Bubba got up alot earlier than usual and spent the morning playing Pokemon on his 3DS. (probably because the puppies ran off and I accidently woke him up going in his room looking for my jacket.) Dora got caught up on quite a few Disney shows she had recorded and Bret slept in.  This was the way our morning went other than having breakfast.

Around 12 I took Bubba and Bret to their Saturday hangout spot, Collector's Alley, where they go and play Yugioh with several friends. Today was a "Sneak Peek" meaning you could get new cards before they hit store shelves so the boys were excited about that. I checked in with them around 5 and Bubba showed me a playing mat that he had won. As I write this it is after 8 and I am waiting on their call when they want to come home tonight.

After I dropped the boys off Dora and I came home long enough for her to get ready to spend the day with her friend since she was having a Birthday party. I took her over to play and she was happy to be back in the old 'hood. I came back to pick her up around 4 and they had not had cake and ice cream yet so I hung out with her and her friends eating One Direction cake and listening to new bands and laughing at silly teenage girl stuff. We left at 5 to go and check on the boys.

While Dora was gone I actually got to watch something besides Disney! Don't get me wrong I LOVE Disney but we have to draw the line somewhere. I watched "The Pursuit of Happyness!".

That pretty well sums up most of our day, just another Social Saturday! We had a quiet dinner just Dad, Dora, and I and now while I am catching up with everyone online Dora and Dad have been watching the newest "Bourne" movie.
