We've had a pretty horrible week. Wonderful vacation last weekend. Returned home Monday night. Decided to take Tuesday "off" from things like laundry and dishes, and woke up Wednesday to no water. Two nights of working with the well made us all hot, sticky and miserable. And we finally got water again on Friday afternoon.
So sitting down last night, as a family, to watch a pre-release version of Field of Vision was a very welcome break from reality. And you can watch it too. Tonight. On NBC at 7:00 or 8:00, depending on where you are. Since this is part of Family Movie Night, brought to you by Wal-Mart and Proctor & Gamble, you can watch it knowing that it is family-friendly.
My family loved it. The general topic of the movie is bullying. Specifically, it dealt with the decision to do the right thing even when it will most likely cost you a lot.
My kids really identified with many of the characters, particularly the little girl -- a voracious reader, who befriends the older foster kid (the one being bullied). The best part for Dale and I was the opportunity to talk about issues like being a friend to people who need one, and about doing what is right.
Check out their Facebook page, or Moms for Family TV. Think about watching the movie tonight.
Quality family programming is something worth supporting.
