Hello? Is this thing on? Is there anybody OUT there?
I am in a weird and cheeky mood this morning, having been up since 2:00 a.m. planning our fall curriculum and watching this movie. I am giddy and over-caffeinated.
My biggest new idea is to switch Cate from Seton over to Catholic Heritage Curricula, just to keep things fresh & lively. I spent a lot of time at CHC’s table during the conference and I was drawn to their 3rd grade program, especially their Behold & See science and their “Tour the Countries.” Any opinions? It seems like a very sweet program and I’m thinking that Cate, being a sweet girl, would enjoy it.
It’s a big move, a big switch, and I’m nervous. We’ve used Seton since day one.
Across the Universe, on the other hand, was not that big a decision. I had it on hand and so I watched it while I planned. It is a trippy, historical look at the late 60’s–and a bit like the Pink Floyd movie The Wall in that I felt that I should be drinking something much stronger than coffee as I watched it. (Not a very sweet movie, shall we say. Not for my daughter Cate.) There’s a fair share of free love and a whole lot of psychedelic stuff going on—it is, after all, a movie about the 60’s—but the music is quite good. Are you a big Beatles fan? If so, it may be worth your renting it.
Otherwise, I don’t know that I’d recommend it.
Hey, look! Here comes the sun! Time to greet the day and pretend that I’m awake for it.
Which I’m not.
Whose fault is that?
