After several weekly zoo, park, and library trips with our 16 month old daughter, I'm more than ready for some new adventures. Yesterday, we attempted seeing a movie for the first time at the theater. I knew she'd only sit for a few minutes here and there, but to my surprise, she sat peacefully for half of the film. The beginning of the movie started with a vintage Disney sketch involving Mickey Mouse so she was hooked from the get go. Addie sat cuddled on my lap with her hand in a bag of popcorn in awe of the massive screen and surround sound, and dancing to the sing-a-long songs of Frozen. And then she discovered the stairs...which lead to half-time in the arcade. I was so excited that our new adventure went better than I anticipated and Addie had a blast experiencing something new and unexpected.
40 Day Challenge--Day 16:
Try something new! We all have a bucket list that isn't fully checked off, and today is the perfect day to start marking off another item. I say "start" because you don't need to successfully complete it, yet. (Addie wasn't ready to watch a full movie, and although she didn't sit perfectly through the whole film, she still had fun.) Give something new a shot, don't expect perfection the first time, and remember that God will guide you in your new endeavor.
