Since she has Serenity raring to go, I will probably start to see less and less of her now, which is the only unfortunate side effect of all of this success. I remember when I first got my license and car, there was no stopping me. I was hardly ever home and couldn't wait to hit the open roads and go my own way. That shitty little poo-brown Toyota of my mine was a God send, and I had some really fun times exploring the far flung regions of Victoria and heading into the city to find my own adventures. Ah, to be young and free....it really is a most wonderful thing.
Seth also came home with exciting news today. He has gone up another spelling level and had a major mathematical break-through as well. He was so enthusiastic about his new learning that he voluntarily did maths equations for nearly an hour and a half after school, this is uncharted territory for him and a thrill for Craig and I to see such enthusiasm. Hopefully, he won't lose his steam over this, because I am beside myself with joy to see him relishing in maths study for the first time ever.
What a brilliant day all around, my clever children have done me proud. It is days like these that make all of the hard yards so worthwhile.

Firefly fans all over the world rejoiced when Serenity was released, and I was one of them. After an amazing first and only season, Firefly was tragically and inexplicable taken off air, leaving fans everywhere in shock and dismay. Joss Whedon clearly heard the public outcry for more and released Serenity five years later.
Set in 2517, Serenity is a story about a captain and crew on board a 'Firefly-class' spaceship. The crew is a mish-mash group of rebels that travel the outskirts of space, keeping out of the way of the Alliance - a sinister regime that controls much of the universe. The crew takes in a doctor and his psychic sister River and as a consequence find themselves being pursued by an Agent that will stop at nothing to get to River. Before long, questions are raised about why the Alliance wants River so desperately.
This is great sci-fi, and you don't need to have seen Firefly to enjoy Serenity; but if you have, you are in for a treat. Filled with intergalactic action and adventure, speckled with well thought out humour and teaming with excitement, this is an interesting and enjoyable look at a possible future where everyone can travel in space, it's a wonderful ride.
FINAL SAY: A Firefly fan's delight!
