The Best Movie in the World

Today the kids and I went to Sanford to get their picture taken for Father's Day. A group shot of the brood is our annual tradition. I think my husband forgets that we do it every year, that is until he opens the gift and sees the picture. I have no fear of blowing the surprise though, becasue he gave up on reading this long ago, LOL. We told him we were goiong out there to get Scott's 11 year old picture taken, and we did that too. It was a busy afternoon. Throw in a trip to JoAnn's to get material to make a "beach" bag for my Uncle's wife to give her as a gift when we go up there, and a few quick dashes into other mall stores, and it really was tiring, but fruitful.
I LOVE the kids' picture, and Scott's is really great too.
By now you are wondering what this has to do with a movie, LOL. Well, Scott grabbed a movie to watch in the car, and it is the BEST movie ever.
What movie is it? Facing the Giants.
I know I've blogged about it before, but it REALLY is not only a must-own, but a must-watch-regularly movie. It is soooo amazing in Godly example. And it's about football, of all things. I HATE sports. But this movie is really the BEST. It makes me cry over and over. It really could be the basis for a whole character study curriculum. I certainly want to watch it with the remote in hand to just pause the movie and TALK with the kids about what has just happened because it is sooooo rich with lessons.
You MUST at the very least rent it. I'd let you borrow ours, but... we'll be busy watching it over and over again.
Pin It!

FIREPROOF looks sooooo good too. I saw the trailer a few months ago. I can't wait to see it. I was just thinking TODAY that I was wondering when it was coming out.
My oldest son prayed at dinner tonight, and he said, "Let our family look like the people in Facing the Giants." I love that my son is praying for REVIVAL :-).
