We also got many compliments on how well the boys behaved. "Oh, they have to learn how to behave and sit still," I'd say with a smile. "An Amish church service is three hours long!"

  1. I'm not sure if I'd enjoy Plain Faith or not, although it does sound unusual. I'll have to read more about it before deciding.

  5. It's hard enough for a child to sit through a normal church length church service. I know, my Mommom was a minister. Love her tons, but she could talk forever. :-) But 3 hours? You're going to get a lot of squirmy butts!

  9. I just found myself a book on Amish community last week! When I told my kids that Amish services were 3 and almost half a day long they just about died....not sure if I should be concerned or tickled by their reaction ha ha ha XD

  15. Three hours long??? I could never sit in church that long. My feet would hurt. I would want to giggle. No way for children to do it. Have fun reading this week.

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
