#1 Son and I saw Sky High tonight while other family members went to the Musical Arts Center to see HMS Pinafore, whatever that is. Sky High rocked. It’s all about high school kids with assorted super hero powers. Some kids have powers that are less than impressive, but even melting like a popsicle or turning into a rodent can help when the world needs saving.
#1 spent last week at a YMCA Adventure Camp where he learned skills for surviving in the wild. By Friday he and his pals were able to make fire, with counselor assistance, and he demonstrated his technique for us at home, using these tools that he carved himself. I asked him how long he thought he could survive in the wild and he predicted, “About 24 hours probably.” Wilderness survival might not be one of his super powers, but like the kid in the movie, he probably has other powers we don’t know about yet. Maybe we all do.
