Home Schooling - Leisure Reading - Diary Of A Wimpy Kid
Song: Safety Dance
Group: Men Without Hats
Alex loves the Diary Of A Wimpy Kid series.
Although he reads many advanced books...
he is still an innocent child in many ways.
Every so often, he likes to read light hearted
books with a comical theme.
He has seen two of the movies and has read many of the books.
The first movie he had seen at home.
He really enjoyed it.
He even enjoyed writing about it.
He had written a movie review as a writing assignment.
When the next movie came out a few months ago
(Dairy of a Wimpy Kid...Roderick Rules)
Alex said he wanted to see it at a movie theater.
I hadn't been to a movie theater for close to fifteen years...
I hate crowds.
However, my wife explained that we could go to the late showing
on a weekday (10:30 pm start time) and that it
probably wouldn't be crowded at that time.
We were the only people there for that showing!
When we got out...
there were not even workers to be seen.
Now that is what I call going to the movies!
We shall be going to the late shows from now on!
Alex enjoyed it...
I, of course, found it to be light hearted and a little silly...
but then again...
so is this posted song...
and I like it...
I really cannot complain.
