School Holidays at last! Which has been such a welcome relief to the daily routine of lunches and pickup and drop off deadlines. Thanks to Babyology; one of the activities on our to do list for these holidays was to go and see the movie Ponyo by the Academy Award tm Winning Director Hayao Miyazaki. Who also directed other memorable animated films such as My Neighbor Totoro which is a number one favorite in our household; Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away.
Ponyo did not disappoint; (with the boys were set with their popcorn and choc top ice creams) as soon as the movie started they were transfixed to the screen; as was I! Half way through the feature; Archer said to me 'Mum I Love this movie'; I then looked down the row to Flynn who was sitting there quietly his face was beaming from ear to ear!
There is something magical and uninhibited by the real yet innocent world that Hayao Miyazaki creates. His stories are to be cherished by the young and old (er); I highly recommend Ponyo for this holiday program, it will most definitely hold a special place in the childhood memories of my two boys; which makes me smile.
