Today, Jaden, Danielle and I went to the park for awhile. Boy, does Jaden love playing in the sand!

Scott came home for lunch - it's so nice to see him during the day!

Then, in the evening, we all went swimming in the pool for awhile. After the kids were in bed, Scott and I watched a movie called "The Sea Inside". It was about a man who was a quadriplegic who basically fought his whole life for the right to to assisted suicide. It was a good movie, but I couldn't help but feel conflicted about the main character. He obviously touched some people in very real ways, but it seemed like he had really wasted his life just because he didn't think that it was good enough to bother living. He didn't want to use a wheelchair because he thought that it wouldn't help him enough, so he just basically laid in his bed for 28 years. It was interesting to imagine how someone could be stubborn enough to spend 28 years fighting to die and refusing to live.
