Imagination

ImageOwen’s 3rd grade class read Charlotte’s Web this month. Each day they read a chapter at home and the next day in class they discussed the themes and meanings in each chapter. It was suppose to conclude with a class trip to the Oregon Children’s Theater to see Charlotte’s Web as a play but the snow last weekend put a kaibosh on that. Instead, we watched the movie last night for family movie night. 

I love this book. And the movie was great too. I liked the Wilbur in this version. The cartoon movie I saw a super long time ago had a really whiny Wilbur. This version’s Wilbur was much more relaxed and while worried about being served up for dinner, was overall pretty joyful.

I read an article about E.B. White and his thoughts on imagination. So, your nugget of wisdom for the day…

“in real life, a spider doesn’t spin words in her web…but real life is only one kind of life–there is also the life of the imagination. And although my stories are imaginary, I like to think that there is some truth in them, too–truth about the way people and animals feel and think and act.”

Happy Valentines Day

One of my favorite scenes in Despicable Me 2 is to this tune. It’s such a great one to get stuck in your head.

Hope your VDay has been filled with lots of sweetness. 🙂
