Watching Secondhand Lions after way too long of a break tonight with my wife - both enjoying a quiet night at home before more work tomorrow.
I've forgotten how good this movie is, and how many good lessons it will have for my children as they grow up. I could share a ton of brief quotes, but simply watch the movie if you haven't - and if you have a child in the right range they may enjoy it as well.

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

I loved that movie. I saw Big Fish for the first time last night and I loved that one, too.
*Love that movie*
We LOVE 'Secondhand Lions' in this house. It's a great film for the raising of boys. :)
Beth - I was hoping it was on your list, considering some of our past talks on here!
