Two Good Family Movies

We have watched two fun family movies in the last two weeks. The first one was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which was much more fun than I remembered. It was produced the same year I was born (1968). The music is great fun, and we've requested the cd from the library. Just one note - there's a slightly risqué underwear scene in the big duet between the king and the queen. Scene-skipping is good! Just in case you want to check ahead of time so you're fore-armed. :) I thought it was an odd scene to include since the rest were so very kid-friendly.

The other movie was Ballet Shoes. This is the story of three orphans (who are homeschooled by their foster mother!). It takes place in London in the 1930s. One wants to be a ballerina, one an actress, and the other an aviator. We thought it was very sweet, and the kids enjoyed it too.

Wow, two good ones in a row. That's a record for us lately.
