Five Question Friday

  1. Flu mist? Flu shot? Or take your chances? I always go with the Flu shot.  Being asthmatic, it's pretty important that I get it.  That, and the fact that they give them to the whole family for free through my husband's work.  (One of the advantages of him work at a major University/Hospital.)
  2. Do your kids have iPads? What are some good educational apps? Price? No iPad here.  I do have a Kindle for myself that the kids use occasionally and Pete has a VTech Innotab with a bunch of cartridges.  For the Kindle, one of my favorite educational apps is Tracing ABC (Free).  It's a free app that teaches the kids how to trace various letters and numbers.  Since we've had a hard time getting Pete to work on his letters, this has helped a lot.  
  3. What are your favorite boy/girl baby names? I've got a few of them.  My all-time favorite boy name is Theadore.  It's my dad's name, which is why I made sure that my eldest son was named it as well.  I also really like the name Galen.  (And the name Peter has grown on me - that one was Rich's choice, after his grandfather.)  For girl's names, I've always loved the name Anastasia.  I don't know what it is about it, but I absolutely love it.
  4. If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, which apple do you choose to eat? (red/green, gala, red delicious...) I've never been a big raw apple eater.  I'm the opposite of my husband in that way - he hates cooked apples but loves them raw, and I don't care for them raw but love them cooked.  If I've got to eat an apple, though, I usually will go for a gala or a jazz.
  5. What is your favorite place to escape to for peace & quiet, to think? Why? I don't really have a place any more.  When I was younger, it was the pond next to my parents' property.  There was a rock just on our side of the property line and I would sit and think, watching the stillness of the pond. Now that I'm older and have a lot more responsibilities, I don't have the time to escape and think as much as I need it.  Most of the time, when I can, it's escaping to my room for some quiet time.  Usually with either a book to read or a pen and paper to write on.
