New Moon Movie Experience

I want to encourage single parents to take time out every once in a while and do something with your kids that you would not normally do, even if it means you lose sleep or study time.  Last week, I decided to pre-order New Moon tickets for the midnight showing of the movie for my daughter.  I am so very glad I did this.  She had a blast!  And it will be something she remembers for a long time.

So, I don't want to spoil the movie, but here are a few observations---there were a few changes from the book, but nothing as to ruin the book.  I got a kick out of going to the midnight showing.  The excitement of several hundred teenage girls was palpable!  When Edward appeared for the first time the girls screamed.  When Jacob took his shirt off for the first time, the girls screamed louder.....LOL.  And when the movie ended---well mayham broke out.

What was great was the absolute joy it gave my daughter to not say "Oh, I don't have time."  OR "Oh, it's too late."  I believe she is going to remember this for a long time to come.
