7 Quick Takes v.5

Woah, 7 Quick Takes twice in a month – unheard of! Just a few links, thoughts, and nerdy excitement for you this week. ๐Ÿ™‚

She Only Said Yes Once
This post makes me want to keep Catherine at home forever and ever and never let her go anywhere. Knee jerk reaction? Maybe. But she is so innocent that it is easy to never want anyone to take that away. Parenting in the midst of our current culture is a daunting task.

On Being a Catholic Under Bad Government

This is such a great post and I think many Christians could read this and empathize.

I went to a work conference on Monday and Tuesday so I was away from Catherine for 2 nights for the first time. I enjoyed the conference and getting to watch TV (woot!) but Catherine has definitely been having some separation anxiety since I’ve been back.

The Tesla Model X
This is my current dream car and it hasn’t even been released yet. Once upon a time, my dream car was a VW Bug. Well, times have changed. I love the Tesla cars. So much cool technology and they are super safe. It is amazing how much safer a car is when the front doesn’t house the engine and is a crumple zone instead. I love that they are willing to re-imagine things that are normally assumed design wise.

New Star Wars trailer! So, revoke my nerd card, but I hadn’t heard about Rogue One. I knew that they were planning a Han Solo and Chewbacca origins movie but this one caught me by surprise. Anyway, the trailer looks awesome. I’m totally okay with having a new Marvel and Star Wars movie to watch every 6 months. Thanks, Disney.

Speaking of Marvel, less than one month until Captain America: Civil War. I’m excited to see the full story unfold. I think it is going to be intense.

Can’t have 7 whole takes without a picture of this girl. Yesterday she got to stop by Dad’s office and fit some medical textbook reading into her busy schedule. Andy is hoping that this is good sign that she will be just like him. We’ll see about that. ๐Ÿ˜‰


More quick takes at This Ain’t the Lyceum.
Happy Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I love that they released a more consumer priced car. Hopefully by the time we’re in the market for one, they’ll have one we can afford. ๐Ÿ™‚
