I can't wait to check out Jen Wilkin's message. Thanks for pointing it out. I LOVED the ad she referenced from the Super Bowl. Because the whole "like a girl" saying, "throw like a girl," "cry like a girl," is one of my pet peeves and I don't let anyone get away with saying it in my house. ;)

The Lego trip looked fun!
