One of my five-year-old’s favorite movies is this one….The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

I really should say, “One of my almost six-year-old’s” favorite movies….but Jenny likes me to wait until the day of the birthday to claim the “6-year-old” status….something about premature aging being kind of traumatic.

I think that she wants them to stay “little” as long as possible.

Anyway, when Nate says, “Let’s watch Walter Mitty again”, I don’t complain.

It’s a great movie….and I pick up something a little different every time I watch it.

Here’s one of my favorite scenes:

I love this scene so much…..”sometimes…I …just want to….stay in it…”

We went over to the new property today….planning….dreaming…planning.

One of the beauties of not having a lot of money is that it helps you make your decisions slowly….but “years and years” would be ridiculous….so we’ll have to make a move sometime soon.

Cleaning it up is keeping us busy….but that’s really just a distraction….like endless organizing before you launch into tackling a project.

Anyway….it’s beautiful over there….peaceful.

Where we live now is pretty peaceful….but over there, it’s a little bit farther off the road, so it’s really peaceful.

We’ll figure out something.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty….good for grownups…..good for children.

How many movies can you say that about?
