The boys have been begging to go see a movie. When they found out that Toy Story 3 was in town, they asked to go see that movie. Used to, our town offered free summer movies, but now they charge $2.50/each to see the summer movies. We have not been to the movies yet this summer. Since our boys have seen most of the movies playing in the summer line-up, I decided to pay a little extra to see a movie they had not seen before. I have read good reviews about this movie.
Since I woke up with a summer cold and my head is hurting, I decided today would be a good day to go to the movies. It will be dark, and cool, and quiet (except for the movie of course.) I told the boys they would have to have everything completed before we left. They had to have their lessons finished, their room cleaned, and their reading finished. I have never seen them more motivated to do their work than this morning!
UPDATE: This has to be one of the best movies that I have ever watched! There are all sorts of moral lessons - good vs. evil, friendship, sacrifice, overcoming obstacles, moving on, pure love, just to name a few. There is adult humor but not any that would be inappropriate for anyone to watch - very clean fun!!! I will buy this movie for sure when it is released.
