Percy Jackson Lovers Live Here

Just got back from seeing the new Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters movie. Loved it!! Girls afternoon out for us. Percy Jackson is something me and Grace have shared over the years, always reading the book aloud so both of us can share the experience together. I can credit the Percy Jackson series for igniting a love of Greek mythology in Grace. Actually for a love of all things mythological. We started with Greek because of the book but have dabbled in Egyptian, Roman, and now Norse. The Norse mythology ties into our Middle Ages study for history this year. It is so interesting to hear how other cultures explain the creation of this world and different events that took place. Of course we believe in the Bible and the literal creation from the book of Genesis but we still find it interesting to compare and contrast to how other peoples and times tried to explain it. Now we are anxiously awaiting the release of House of Hades Book #4. Also the new movie left you hanging for the next which would be The Titan's Curse. Of course very bummed that the next movie will be out in like 2-4 years. Why couldn't they have made this series like The Hobbit and The Hunger Games with filming one right after the other without any lag time? I guess this series just isn't as big as the other in grossing money and doesn't warrant the same treatment.

The girls and I are anxious to see it while it is still in the theater. I hope that we can get there sometime this week......
