I hit "kid overload" at approximately 6:37 this evening.

Friday night we had a slumber part for Green's 9th birthday. Great kids and we had a great time.

Saturday we went to the Iowa State tailgating festivities. Lots of kids. Then we - just me and Pool Boy - took all 14 of those kids to the movie High School Musical 3 movie. Again, the kids were great and we had a good time.

Today our boys sang at church so we sat through until the choir was finished, then rushed to Des Moines for a soccer game. Not just any soccer game. A soccer game in 48 degrees and 48 mph winds.

While in Des Moines we purchased Guitar Hero World Tour. (For those of you making a mental note of that, boys paid half and we paid half.) When we got home, they immediately pulled it out and started playing it. We also spent about 2 hours trying to figure out the microphone, only to come to the conclusion that we will need to purchase an additional wiimote if we plan to sing along with the guitar and drums.

Oh yes, drums. You could hit a box with a stick and it would sound the same. And I've been listening to this for 5 hours straight.

At 6:37, I lost it. It's a good thing it's Sunday night and we are all going our separate ways tomorrow morning...
