Spring Break usually includes at least one movie. I already had a movie day with my great-nephew last week. Today I am off to the movies with him and and my sister. After the theater, we will head to my sister’s place for old movies on TV. Her mom (she’s my step-sister) lives with her. Mary just celebrated her 93rd birthday. She enjoys the old movies so it is a great activity we can all share. Since my mom passed away, Mary has begun to “adopt” me. We really knew this when Mary said while planning some errands for my sister, “Well, if you can’t get to it, maybe Diane will do it. ”
Later this week will be one last movie day- the promised mother- daughter day. We are going to Beauty and the Beast. I’ve heard critics didn’t give it the highest rating (don’t care) and some tried to create some controversy (again, don’t care). I am just looking forward to revisiting one of my daughter’s old favorites- but more than anything the time with my daughter! (Her hubby is having a father- son golf outing on the same day. So we will have lots of “just us girls” time!)
These times with family are the very best part of every break from school.
