Bit of a Disappointment

Saturday, June 25, 2011

Cars 2 was more than a little disappointing. While it was visually impressive, it lacked the charm of the original with a contrived and overly complex story line for this type of movie. Our youngest daughter got bored about midway through the film. To me that's a sign that a movie geared towards her age group is not working.

Pixar has made a lot of great films for families and children. They're allowed to have a dud every now and then. I guess the spy motif was designed to entertain us adults, but it just seemed a bit out of reach for some of its intended audience.

Our youngest daughter made the most telling remark when she said, "Well, I guess we won't want to get that one when it comes out on DVD."

    I was afraid of that. After the emotional roller coaster that was Toy Story 3, I don't see how they could keep up.

    My wife just told me we'll be going to see Cars 2 anyway, she loves Mater.

Another Day!

Friday, June 24, 2011

I was able to enjoy a nice run on a beautiful morning here in Mid-Mo before heading into work this morning. Later today, our family is planning to head to the movies to see Cars 2. Our youngest is especially excited about this one. Days like this remind me so clearly of what really matters. I am exceedingly grateful to God for the life He has given me. Hopefully, if you have not already, you will come to the realization of how truly blessed you are.

Blessings.

Thursday

Thursday, June 23, 2011

After a productive meeting this morning it's time to catch up on some things at work and get some things done for the days ahead. Also, we are continuing to prayerfully seek God's direction with respect to what His next steps for us are in ministry.

Your prayers would be much appreciated.

Blessings.

It's nice to be back home. While we enjoyed our time in Branson for a few days, it is good to be back home. We are back home with our dogs and enjoying a night together. Hopefully, your Wednesday has been enjoyable.

Titanic Day

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

After a hot day at Silver Dollar City yesterday, we are looking forward to taking our girls to see the Titanic exhibit this afternoon. Our youngest daughter is especially excited about this. Ever since she read a book about a girl on the ship in school, she has had quite a fascination with this historical event.

Looking forward to a nice afternoon with the ladies after the conferences are completed this morning.
