the kids had all of last week off from school. massachusetts' public school thing. it's kind of torture, every single year, because the weather isn't really nice, and steve never has off this break (can't college and public school get on the same schedule?!), so we end up doing little things here and there, but mostly trying not to spend a ton of money, and to still be home for dinner when steve gets home. and now, with parker and one wonkin' midday nap (respect the nap!!), well, enough with my saga... needless to say, we needed some diversions.
i have so few apps, outside of some photo ones, on my iphone. so, when lindsey came home from a friend's house telling me about the imovie app they were playing with, i was interested. it sounded seriously fun so i checked it out and, indeed it was. they spent, all told, probably a good four to five hours using this app throughout the week and they made some hilarious movie trailers. they took turns as director, and (shocker!) hardly fought at all. i'm chalking it up to the imovie magic! parker even got to star in some of them. they would run downstairs to show me different scenes and we would laugh and laugh. it is such a fun app. i recommend downloading it immediately.
there'll probably be more of these trailers to come on the blog. they're still loving this app. but back to school they go, so their stint as director and writer and producer will have to be on hold a bit.
(they totally asked, "will it be on the blog?!" william's psyched that the one he directed made the final cut. it is pretty darn funny, to us anyway, though they might've lost a little steam towards the end. trying to direct an 19-month old proved challenging i think.)
