Did you know?

Did you know that no piece of square dry paper can be folded in half more than 7 times? I tired it and can't prove it wrong, so I suppose it's right. After all, if anyone can fold a paper in's GOTTA be me, right?
Wrong. MythBusters did it. (See the video in the comments.) Granted it wasn't a square but they definitely busted the nature of this comment, by folding a football field sized piece of paper in half 11 times. Wow.

Did you know that yesterday I had 6 appointments on my calendar and only managed to make it to 2 of them? Wow. I'm not good at that. On the plus side my little brother moved to a great new apartment! (hooray!)

Did you know that I borrow more books from my mom than the library? That's because she's cooler than the library - plus she lets me keep them longer than 3 weeks.

Did you know that we fed Thomas berries this week? We're still supposed to be introducing foods to him one at a time for 3 days at a time. Somehow "triple berry mix" seemed like 1 food to me until it was already in his mouth...meh. He's fine.

Did you know that my child almost always sleeps with his ankles crossed? I think it might be a leftover "comfort position" from his days in the womb.  Remember back when there was no option but for him to cross his ankles? too.

Did you know that the 5k is this weekend? Then you can stop hearing about it. Won't that be nice?

Did you know that since we've started walking to church we've never been late? I'm telling you, walking to church is the greatest thing that ever happened to us. We talk about the lessons before we get there. We talk about the lessons on the way home. We hold hands, make faces at our baby and come home perfectly exhausted, happy and ready for our afternoon nap. What more do you want on a Sunday huh?


  1. Are you running the 5K at Thanksgiving Point? I know it's coming up sometime soon and it's pretty much the best race ever since it's through the gardens.

  2. Details! I want to see you run your race!

  3. It's Walk MS. But Running With Angels (Thanksgiving Point) might be worth doing another one!

  4. Do you take aother shoes to walk to/home from church?

  5. Yep. I walk in flip flops because they're comfy enough for the short walk and small enough to fit in the stroller or a bag once we get there. I don't worry about how big the shoes I'm actually wearing to church are, because I only have to haul them around during the walk and they don't have to look subtle during the meetings.

  6. Details about the 5K, my friend. De. Tails.

    The end.

  7. p.s. I like your slideshow with Thomas crying one minute and then the Ikea cups appear in a tower in front of him and he's no longer upset.

  8. I think we need to start walking to church 'cause we are always late! And here is a link for paper folding, (I hope it works), it is from MythBusters and I think you'll enjoy it. :)

  9. I heart MythBusters! And this is why. EDIT is IS possible to fold a piece of paper more than 7 times.
