Last Day...

So, this month was nearly a failure. We did not put our all in to the challenge. Maybe it was because I didn't find it too interesting, which is okay because I'm not sure if Annabelle would have found it interesting either and this is all in memory of her, of course.

Tomorrow we will announce March's challenge and I PROMISE we will be on top of our game this time!

Love, Peace, Hugs, and Kisses to everyone!

We Suck

Ian and I have been so busy that neither of us have taken the initiative to update our blog. We have learned little about the art of war, but what we have learned has just completely blown my mind.

In the beginning of February we watched a documentary (Ian made me, of course -- I swear Annabelle would have had such a similar personality to her daddy) about the Mongol Empire. Never thought I would say this but it was SO FREAKIN' COOL! My goodness I was on the edge of my seat. I definitely would suggest it. It's also mostly on youtube too, Part 1 introduces the warrior Genghis Khan who was born *apparently* holding a blood clot, which was a "sign from Heaven that he was destined to be a great warrior". Anyway, there is this one part of the documentary where they go over some specific war tactics that Genghis is famous for. My most favourite was when a group of his soldiers left a battle in disguise that they were running away. Instead, they were taking their opponents around the corner of a huge rock-type-mountain. Upon this rock-type-mountain were numerous soldiers of Khan's team (and numerous like... hundreds and hundreds) ready with bow and arrow to strike the opponents as soon as they turned the corner. It was SUCH a fantastic idea! If I ever happen to be at war, that is the tactic I will try to convince others to use.

Hmm. What else can I talk about? I think this is the only "war" thing I have on my mind right now. I hope Ian will post something before the end of the month. We kind of failed our challenge this month which is very unfortunate.

On another note, we are having an awesome time volunteering :)

Peace to you all,

I keep forgetting to post the February Challenge.

It is.....


Now. You may be thinking, "What does this mean?" Well, I've been asking my boyfriend the same thing for the past two days as this was his idea. He has yet to give me a straight answer lol.. he sometimes mumbles something about learning karate, or self defence, or reading books upon books about tactics used in Wars over the years.

I've come to decided that I think I will do a comparison. One comparison each week between war tactics 50 years ago, and war tactics today. I don't think war is positive in terms of art, but I must admit that the minds of some of the people who create war are very creative. Okay maybe the comparison idea isn't the best. Does anyone else have "Learn the Art of War" ideas? This 30 day Challenge is really only a 28 day Challenge and I've already lost two days so I better figure it all out!!

On another note, we can begin volunteering this week :) Finally!
