Five For Friday

1.  This amazing video about Zach Sobiech's last days has made the rounds this week, but just in case you haven't seen it, it's definitely worth watching.  "You don't have to find out you're dying to start living."  What a remarkable young man.  Warning:  this will probably make you cry, but watch it anyway.

2. I've been dreaming of getting away with John and the kids.  If money was no object, I'd totally rent this private island just so I could say, "Oh, yes. I remember that summer we rented that private island."

3.  On a far more serious note:  The weather around here has been so lovely that it's hard to imagine what has happened down in Oklahoma.  One of my favorite bloggers, Ashley Ann, lives down in OK and put together this list of ways we can help the victims of the tornadoes.

4.  As a Bears fan who grew up smack dab in the middle of the Ditka era, I was thrilled to hear this news.

5.  Jack and I really want to see this movie.

Have a wonderful weekend.  Those of us in the US will celebrate Memorial Day on Monday--a holiday set aside to honor those who have served our country.  It's also the "unofficial" start of summer, so there will definitely be a parade (Emily will play in the marching band), some grilling out, and maybe a boat ride (yahoo!).
