Happy Sunday y’all! Friday was the last day of school for little man, and we’ve had a busy week. Field Day, Awards Day, Summer Splash end of year party, and then finally a rest day. Every year we encourage Liam to make good grades and reward him at the end of the school year with money for those grades. This year he worked really hard and made all A’s and one B (spelling which has always been a struggle for us because of his speech development). We are so proud of him. This year he used his money on a small blow up pool and a movie (How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World). We’ve really enjoyed the pool.

Last night to cap off the school year we went to the movies to see Aladdin. I’m not sure if this was for my son as much as it was for me. I was his age when the cartoon came out, and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. I was hesitant at first about Will Smith as the genie. How could anyone possibly measure up to the iconic performance by Robin Williams? Y’all Smith is fantastic!!! He brought his own flavor to the genie but also kept the whimsy Williams brought to it. Seriously I got chills when Smith broke out into Arabian Nights. Perfect!

Reading wise I’ve not got much reading done this week. We’ve been so busy that my reading was relegated to night only and well that devolved into me falling asleep on the couch. I did manage to finish one book last week so it wasn’t a total wash out.

  1. So happy for Liam and his good grades!
    I want to see Aladdin but think I will wait for it to come to Netflix or Disney Plus. My favorite live action was Cinderella. 🙂

    I hope you have a fantastic week, Lillian! Happy Reading!

    • I really liked Cinderella too but this is now my favorite. Aladdin was enough like the cartoon while adding its own flair that I love it! Hope you have a great week Michelle ☺️
