Free State of Jones (movie trailer)

I so wish we lived closer to a bigger city so I could go see a screening of this movie! "Free State of Jones" stars Matthew McConaughey. Based on a true story, Newt Knight (McConaughey) is a Southern farmer during the Civil War who rallied those who believed that "no man ought to tell another man what he's got to live for - or what he's got to die for." He and his group of men fought for freedom, equality, and the ideal that no one can own a child of God. Here's a link to a really nice clip. Here's a trailer from YouTube: I can't wait to see the movie myself. I don't know much more about it, ratings or anything, but it looks good. I enjoy historical films and Matthew McConaughey. Disclaimer: I am sharing this because it looks good. I got the trailer from a media group I resource through. 

May update, into June, and Happy Father's Day

May was crazy! June is crazy! July is birthdays so I'm looking forward to August. I think. I think the biggest update is on Moose. His surgery went fantastic. It was June 1. It's like he's had no recovery, seriously. He came out of the operating room in no pain and hasn't complained of pain since (that's 2 weeks of no pain, amazing, miraculous. Thank You, Great Physician). The procedure was a success - they took out the tissue/tumor they were hoping to obtain. He's had no seizures since (which is not an indication one way or another since he is still on his anti-seizure meds). waiting in the hospital - looking at something not-so-serious, I'm sure my sister and I coloring while we wait Big A took him for his two week follow-up yesterday (I was home sick). They said only 4 more weeks of no swimming (versus 6 weeks). Everything seems to be healing fine (despite his picking at the scabs on his head). He will have another MRI December 20 and if that
