Another Fun Family Saturday

SAMSUNGYesterday was another fun day on Guam with the family. We headed out early in the morning (well at 9.30) to watch Titus’ 2nd basketball game. You can see himSAMSUNG sitting on the end of the bench in the picture on the right. We enjoy the game and getting to spend time with our co-worker at PIU, Celia Atoigue and her family. Her grandson Michael and Titus enjoy playing together. They have some very interesting conversations. In the picture on the right Celia is watching Serenity and Chloe working together on a coloring book. And our team won again. We are 2-0

When we first arrived on Guam 22 years ago there were only a few movie screens on island, but now we have three multi-screen movie outlets in the malls. I enjoyed this movie more than any kid’s movie I have seen since Up. It is a story about a little girl growing up from the perspective of the emotions that are personified in her brain. I laughed all the way through it and I thought it had a good message – that life is made up of happy and sad events and we should not try to over-shield children from sadness that comes from failure or changing circumstances. We should teach them to deal with it so they can grow into responsible adults. I would recommend this movie even if you don’t have grandchildren to take with you.
