invictus




we saw invictus friday night and just loved it. i think all my favorite movies are sports movies. i appreciated this one even more though because of all the years of watching grant play rugby. he played in high school and then BYU for five years. i've grown to love the sport and since grant ran out of eligibility he has missed it like crazy. i will never forget when his coach, said to me in our wedding line (to tease me), "in all my years of coaching, nobody has ever hit as hard as grant barnes".

we also always appreciate a good clean film. it's not that i only like the warm fuzzy kind but it's a great feeling when your mood can change from ordinary to inspired after watching a movie. that's when a movie is really worth your time. the history in this was great, i loved learning more about nelson mandela. what a brilliant and honorable man. if you haven't already, go see it!

p.s. speaking of movies.... can't wait for this.

These are great pics of Grant. I think David misses Grant playing more than Grant misses playing. We need to cheer for someone!!
