Lego gets blasted for the Lego Friends series, but they made a pretty bad-ass STRONG female. So what if she wears lipstick and pink? She’ll still kick ass!
Yesterday was 9/11, the twelfth anniversary of the falling of two buildings (well, more fell, but you know the drift), heroes crashed a plane into a field, and a military post was hit (or something. Trying to figure out a way to NOT say Pentagon, but I failed.
Before school, the kids watched a little of the original live coverage on MSNBC. Madison was horrified, and Ethan was full of questions, as usual. We gave them the story of where we were, how we felt, all of that. This is the first year that they really understand what it means, what happened, and why they have so much focus on it.
My husband was also off for a scheduled day off (USPS carriers have rotating days off), so we had a bit of a date day, without the actual date, :lol:.
Now, on to the actual pictures!
The kids saw the second plane hit in “real time” and Madi was appalled.
My kids say that this outfit and hair style really says who I am. In a Lego Friends form.
I think it’s cute!
Also, I stole these Legos from the kids! A Graduate, Coffee Librarian, a Roman Soldier, and Medusa!
I love watching Madison playing with her Lego Friends sets. She has almost all of the first series, and is working on the second series that came out a few months ago. She is so creative with what she is able to create.
