The Worth of a Challenge

If you give a child a fish, you feed him for a day.
If you teach a child to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
But if you teach a child to learn, you feed him for a lifetime
and he doesn't have to just eat fish.

My very first movie review!

Last night we promptly went to Target to get the movie Tangled. I heard lots of good things about the movie and thought my family would enjoy giving it a whirl. Everyone was so right. The movie was great. I wasn't sure at first how a "princess movie" would be received by my two boys, but they really enjoyed the movie about a "girl with lots of hair". The songs were wonderful and enhanced by the choicest of actors Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi. There is a moment toward the end of the story where I found my self not wanting to look knowing what was going to happens since I have heard this story when I was a young child. True to all Disney movies though, the movie does end "Happily Ever After". I did have one small rift with the movie and that is from the "step mother" who sings to Rapunzel "Mother knows best". I often say this to my boys, but just like the magic, it's all in the movies! I am certain this will be added to the long list of classics and will be favored for years to come.
