Why We Can't Hardly Wait for Summer: Cars 2

Okay. It is March. Almost April. The time when we all start slugging our way through school and wishing el verano was already here. We are restless and itching to run and stretch our bodies. Our daily list of things to do now includes kick a ball, climb a tree, dig in the dirt, or ride a bike.  

The good news is that now's the time when we can finally bust out of the house and take our classes outside: science fair projects, art classes, math, and even reading. There's nothing quite like reading a great book with the spring sunshine warming your body, a gentle breeze rustling the pages and filling your nose with the scent of green grass and blooming flowers.

After a fun Spring Break that included a visit from los abuelos, we are now re-energized and ready to buckle down and get this school year done. I am already planning what subjects we will be "studying" this summer (astronomy, Ancient Egypt, maybe some anatomy) for fun.

And I will admit. There is one more thing that has us itching for summer to get here:

Cars 2 hits theaters on June 24th.

I read this promo to my kids:

"Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in Disney*Pixar's "Cars 2" when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix. But the road to the championship is filled with surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile (voice of Michael Caine)."

Mi'jo is beside himself with joy.

And my daughter - who is currently fascinated by anything spy/detective related - is excited, too, but trying not to show it. The only thing that has me slightly worried is that it is coming out in 3D, which is okay for me, but my kids have had a real hard time keeping the gigantic 3D glasses on their faces and wind up watching the blurry show without them. My husband and I opted to avoid 3D versions for now and go with the regular ones. I'm hoping our theater offers both.

So what about you? What is your family looking forward to the most this coming summer?

Con mucho cariño...
