Arbor Annie’s Spring Forward Weekend Picks March 9-11

The first thing to note about this weekend is that Daylight Savings time starts and the clocks jump forward an hour. Be sure to factor that into planning your Sunday – although with our connected society, it’s a lot harder to miss the time change than when we were growing up. But, even if my devices automatically update the time, I like to be able to plan for it.

    The big movie release this weekend is A Wrinkle in Time. I loved the book when I read it in middle school, but have to admit that I don’t really remember the story. Unfortunately, my daughter didn’t enjoy the book when her teacher read it aloud in first grade. So I guess we won’t be seeing the movie this weekend – not that we really have space in our schedule.

    The big question is whether it can unseat Black Panther’s rein at the Box Office. Have you checked out our Black Panther Review with Parental Guidance?
