Gotta love Spring Break. I had the kids home all week, and we had a great time! We are adding a new feature to this week's blog... movie reviews! Yes, I seem to have spent far too much time at the theater this week.
*** How To Train Your Dragon: a touching story about a young misfit boy living in the Viking world and trying to please his father. Great animation. Jake says, "It's a lot like Avatar." While I agree that people were riding flying dragons in both films, I'm not sure I can fully agree with "Siskel" in this case.
** Diary of a Wimpy Kid: cute story about a sixth grader who's not quite ready for prime time, i.e. middle school. Both kids approved, but both agreed the book was better. My kids just love those books.
* Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Squeakquel. It gets a star because it was on pay-per-view so I saved on movie tickets and snacks! It's all good, baby.
But, most importantly, Spring Break brought me another kind of break. I have had far less pain this week... week one on my new injectable arthritis medication. I can hardly believe it could act this quickly, but I'll take the placebo effect, too. :)
