We are gearing up to move to a new house; piles of boxes surround us and dust covers our clothing from sifting through all the detritus that piles up over the course of ten years. And of course, weighing heavily in the back of my mind is the fact that the new school year is also just around the corner. So much to do...
After a long but satisfying Saturday of cleaning out our basement, my husband and I sat down with our daughter for family movie time to reward our hard work. The movie? Meet the Robinsons, one that that none of us had yet seen.
The film itself offers a great message--that failure should be celebrated rather than feared, and that the best reaction to any failure or roadblock is to "keep moving forward." That alone made me happy we chose it for today.
The movie left me quite satisfied. But then, just before the credits, we were greeted with this screen.
