Finally getting back to this (06.13.2004): Aunt Jess took Shane to see his first movie at the theater. We were a little nervous that he would have some trouble sitting still for the entire film. But as we watched him bouncing with excitement as he marched through the rain to Jess's car, he seemed like such a big boy. According to Jess, he was a very good boy, even while standing in a line for popcorn and drinks that would have given his line-averse dad a coronary. He was so wide-eyed is seemed as if he was trying to savor the experience with every sense. As far as the movie, like the rest of the nation seems to be, Shane was mesmerized by Shrek 2. Thanks Jess -- I know this was very special to him!
