Kane – That’s a Wrap!

Woah, is it that time already?  Seems it is.  The movie Kane’s been working on in Oregon is wrapping up.  They’re still putting it all together (so it will be coming out in August), but Kane’s job on that movie is done.  He had a really fun time working on it, and he’s not usually this proud of the movies he gets to work on.  He says “It’s actually rare that I don’t feel ashamed and/or guilty about the movies I work on.”  But this movie… it’s awesome.  And definitely something to be proud of, for everyone who worked on it.

Here are a few photos (not taken by Kane) of Paranorman in progress:

Look how tiny! They built that! Amazing.

This is the kind of detail we're talking about here.

Tiny knitting!

I’m really blown away by this work.  No words.  We can’t wait to see it when it comes out, I think, August 17th.

And now we find our little family back in that land of the unkown.  What’s going to happen next?  We still don’t know.  And we admit, that is a little scary.  But adventure seems to be the name of the game for us, so we’re taking it as it comes.  And I really believe that a place of more stability and security is in our future.  We just get to ride an exciting roller coaster of life circumstances and corresponding emotions to get there.

This weekend was designated as a relaxing time, the calm before the storm.  (Monday we start figuring out what, in the name of all things good and holy, we are going to do.)

So Kane’s keeping busy doing relaxing things.  Like painting…

And other relaxing things, like tackling our out-of-control lawn. We thought about having the girls braid it, but then decided the grown-up thing to do would be to mow it.  So we bought a push reel mower off craigslist and sent Kane to work.

There he is, mowing away. He makes it look easy!

But it’s really not easy.  This lawn is like Cousin It’s massive, flat sister.

Is that our lawn dressed as a beatnik? No, it's really Cousin It!

Here is our lawn. Poor Kane.

But then, how could anyone complain about having to do ANY job, with a cheering section that looks like this?

"Go Papa GO!!!"

Eila and I raise our glasses (hers a bottle, mine a cup of tea), to Kane for working so hard on Paranorman, and in appreciation for all he does for our family, and in total confidence that he’s going to continue to do well.  He’s a good one.

Stay tuned to find out what the heck will happen next with this family!  It’s anybody’s guess.

Oh, and I was reluctant to post this, but my shameless husband (good though he may be) requested that I include his Amazon wish list in this post…  he’s kind of a weirdo.  A lovely weirdo.  And it’s true that his birthday is a few weeks away.  So I’ll humor him.
