I did not share with the kiddos what we were doing. Instead we just all packed up and headed out for a special treat. I am REALLY surprised that ALL (except the baby, we left baby with my parents) our kids sat still totally enthralled with the movie. Wanna know what we watched? Tangled! It has a little bit for everyone! Romance, comedy, adventure/fighting (sigh) and more! I was impressed! Not totally thrilled with a few of the ideas, but that comes with EVERY movie these days. Just like I can’t make everyone happy, neither can the movies. Hehe…
It was a GREAT day though and I’d make the same choice tomorrow if we could. It really is a different experience to watch a movie on the “big screen”! And 3D movies are very awesome! The lantern scene had all our kids sitting forward on the edge of their seats and a few of them reached out to see if they could really touch something! That was cool.
I do have to say that I might have missed a bit more of the movie than most because I kept glancing down at kiddos to see their reactions. Hehe… That was worth more to me than the movie anyway.
Have you ever had a two hour delay in homeschooling like this? Or at least made one like this? Hehe…
PS-I am OFF my crutches and moving around as usual again too! SO HAPPY to be back to normal. That was a long week!
