Two things we did this summer that I forgot to tell you and you should put on your “to do” list…
See the movie “The Help”
I read the book last year and couldn’t put it down. I admit that I have low expectations whenever a book is turned into a movie. The people in my mind don’t match who they cast in the movie role. I also know you can’t cram all the depth of a book into 2 hours.
But in this case, I thought they did a stellar job and the casting was excellent.
Read the book before or after. Elizabeth bought the book after we saw the movie. Big endorsement as reading is not her favorite activity!
Either way, I believe the movie will entertain you, make you laugh, make you cry and most importantly make you think.
It’s worthy of discussion as a family.
See Keith Urban in concert.
Even if you don’t like country music. Even if you don’t score bargain last minute day of the concert tickets on craigslist like I did. Go ahead and splurge.

One of the top three concerts we’ve ever been to.
This is from rocker PhilBillPaul who is not the biggest country music lover in the house.
The darling twins are.
They grabbed last minute tickets after they found out I did so it was fun to meet them in the lobby before the show.
They agreed and said best concert E.V.E.R.
Leave a comment and let me know if you’ve already seen the movie, read the book or fallen in love with Keith Urban in concert…
