I've instituted an unofficial Friday Night movie night at the house. Daddy plays volleyball on Fridays, so it's a good time to snuggle up and watch a flick. It's not every Friday, sometimes Pokemon wins out, or computer time. But the last time we did this was a few Fridays ago, and we watched "The Neverending Story." I had read that it was coming back to theaters for it's 30th anniversary and though I wanted to go, I didn't want to go by myself. So I set it up to record, and we settled down to watch.
They were really engaged, but had lots of questions. And I'll tell you, they were a lot less scared than I was back in the day!
Other movies we've watched:
Matilda. Sean LOVED it and has asked when we can watch it again.
Goonies. We did this one last year. Will thought it was great. I had forgotten about some of the crude humor in the beginning with the statue and Corey Feldman's character, but luckily it whooshed right over their heads.
Princess Bride. We did this one two years ago and Will just fell in love with it. I love it too, I always stop to watch when it's on.
I'm waiting til they're a little older for Spaceballs, but that's certainly on the list. Always looking for ideas.
