I spent the evening with friends and it was just what I needed to de-stress.
Then I came home and Josh had finished the Lego video. There was a point today that I was pretty sure the video wasn't happening. There was just too much to do and not enough time to do it. But when Josh puts his mind to something, he accomplishes it and he worked his butt off to get it done. And seriously, it is awesome. I could not be more proud of that kid. The sound effects and background music that he added to it this afternoon are awesome and the video is really cute and funny.
We're on such a tight deadline to finish it because the contest is actually in my hometown, four hours from here, and they have to have the entrance fee and an actual hard copy DVD of the video by Friday. It's not something he can enter online and we can't be there to enter it in person. So tonight we got it burned to the DVD and filled out the paperwork and tomorrow morning Shawn is taking it to the post office to be next day aired. Seriously, I'm still amazed that Josh pulled it off because that was not an easy project. It was a TON of work in a really short amount of time. At this point, I don't even care if it wins, I'm proud of him just for finishing it.
I'm going to share the video here in a couple of days. I want to make sure that it gets officially entered into the contest before I post it online. It's super cute and I'm excited to share it. The festival is on April 27th, so we're going to make a weekend trip over there so he can participate in the fun activities they're doing.
And now I'm going to bed. It was a satisfying end to a busy day!
