Kung Fu Panda is the story of Po (Jack Black) a panda who works in his father's noodle shop and dreams of being a Kung Fu Master. When he hears that the Jade Castle is going to be choosing the Dragon Warrior, he makes his way to the celebration.
The Furious Five are competing for the title of Dragon Warrior when Po unwittingly puts himself in the center of the contest. He is chosen as the Dragon warrior, yet he knows absolutely no Kung Fu.
When the evil snow leopard, Tai Lung, escapes from prison, Shiftu (Dustin Hoffman) knows he has to train Po to defeat him. It's a wild old time and if you want to find out what happens in the end, you will have to take in the movie. We all enjoyed it.
In other news, my first husband's uncle passed away on Sunday. He and his wife were in a car accident last December and he has been in hospital ever since. I grew up with all of these people and before my first husband died, the deceased was my uncle by marriage, which made him Michelle's great-uncle. We decided that since the boys have never been to a funeral home, this was a good opportunity to take them. They met some family members that they hadn't seen in some time and met some they had never met before. They were very well behaved and shook hands and greeted everyone. It was a good lesson for them as there are other family members who are not well that are close to the boys. They did a great job and made Mom & this Grandma proud.
At the funeral home I met many old friends that I had not seen in some years and that was especially nice. I talked to several people I went to school with and also got to introduce Michelle and the boys to my grade one school teacher. That was also special.
Hope you are all enjoying the summer weather. It's been around 30 Celcius (90 F) here but with the humidity it seems much warmer. Last week we had beautiful weather with very little humidity and cool breezes. August is on its way and it's typically our hottest month. We shall see. Wherever you are, try to keep cool and enjoy your week. ~Blessings, Mary~
