June’s Movies

Is it July already?!  I  can hardly believe how fast June flew by.  We had a few weeks of sleeping in, Gage actually slept past 8am a few days, and this week he’s been going to nature camp three hours a day plus a few other usual activities.  They actually took an hour and a half hike yesterday!  Needless to say, he’s been sleeping well 🙂  Onto the movies.  I loved both new movies we saw at the theater.

We made it to $100!!  Yay!  All reviews posted now will count toward to month when we start back at 0 🙂

I hope that you will take a few minutes to participate when you can each month.  It’s fun for me and for everyone else who reads it.  I’m not looking for a critical review, just a few words about how you felt about the movie.  This is ongoing so you can leave your 5 words anytime.

    • I liked the story of The Vow too, just wasn’t sure Channing pulled it off for me 🙂

    • Aw, thanks Kay! I am sooo behind that I haven’t even read about your break. This summer is kicking my butt.

  4. It sounds like you guys are having a good summer so far. 🙂 I am glad Gage is enjoying camp. (Mouse sends her hello to Gage. She found one of the train postcards she hid from me and asked me to mail it to her “best friend Gage” so I’ll get that in the mail this week for him.

    I only saw two movies this past month: Jurassic World (I agree with your review) and Jane Eyre. I was curious about Spy, so am glad for your thoughts on it.
