Thumbs up.

Phillip and I watched High School Musical 2 last night. I'm kind of embarrassed, but I have to say that I LOVED it! West Side Story meets Sound of Music. It was clean, fun, clean, entertaining, clean, oh and did I mention it was clean! I guess I expected it to have some suggestive dance moves and such, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The girls even watched some of it today and liked it as well. Of course they had to get into the dancing action. Becca even got some booty shaking done!

It's got me thinking though....
I think it's our responsibility as Christian parents to know what's out there in pop culture like High School Musical, Hanna Montana, Avril Lavigne, Cheetah Girls, Natasha Bedingfield, etc. We're supposed to be "in the world but not of it", but the problem is that many Christians are both not of the world and not in it as well. Could this be why 2/3rds of our children are turning their backs on Christ when they get to college? It may be a part of the equation.

Now I'm not going to fool myself into thinking I'm hip, but I'm going to do what I can to stay current on pop culture. Right now that pop culture includes a really fun and clean show called High School Musical. Ya'll should check it out!

I'll have to check out HS Musical. Wanted to let you know that the water table came from Toys R Us. I think they are on clearance next year. Park loves it!
