Summer Break Starts Today

Summer break starts TODAY! Believe it or not it has started out as a cold, wet day outside...52 this morning!

We decided to snuggle under the blankets and watch this!

Don't you just love Anne of Green Gables? I remember as a girl going to many spend the night parties and watching the entire series...Oh how we loved Gilbert!
I love watching it now as much as I ever did , only this time I get to enjoy it with my girls! I am not ashamed to say that I still cry when Matthew dies and when Gilbert tells Anne that he hopes that "he breaks your heart, whoever he is"..and I still love "I don't want diamonds, or sunburst halls, I only want you!!!! ..oooohhh my!
Today promises to be a fun filled day snuggling on the couch watching Anne and Gilbert. I am so glad that my girls love watching Anne as much as I do.... and as for B, well, he likes it too. What choice does he have really with a house full of sisters!

Just the other day, I was feeling discouraged and thought, "Well, at least I'm not in the 'depths of despair.'" That brought a smile to my face when I thought of Marilla's stern reply about not being able to imagine being in the depths of despair because to despair is to turn your back on God (paraphrase). It also made me look forward to when my girls are old enough to enjoy the movie with me.

What a great day to start summer break! And good job, B, to hang in there with the girls.

I haven't seen that movie in forever--more than forever! I'll have to see if it's at my library.
