weekend movie: soul surfer

on saturday, my mom, sister & i went to see "soul surfer"! we didn't get the chance to see it when it first came out, but they were showing it at the dollar theater near where we live, so we thought we would go see it! we had lunch before the movie at red robin! & went to baskin robins for ice cream after the movie! yumm!!! it was a perfect day!!! & wow! what an amazing movie...

it is based on the very inspiring, true story of bethany hamilton... (in case you don't know) she is a pro-surfer from hawaii, who lost her arm in a shark attack in 2003, when she was only 13 years old. it was a miracle that she even survived & it was her amazing faith & family that got her through everything, so she could surf again! i can't imagine how hard it must have been, but she never lost hope in God's plan. the story was so inspiring! the cinematography of hawaii was so beautiful. & the surfing scenes, which bethany did herself, were amazing! it's definitely a good one to see!

& this week... it's all about vbs at my church... yay!!! my sister & i are teaching the 1st & 2nd grades! on Sunday afternoon we decorated our classroom with the new york theme for lifeway's "big apple adventure"... anyway, all the fun is about to begin, so i am sure it will be a crazy week, but i am looking forward to it!! i will share a few photos soon....

i hope you all are having a happy monday!
