I think it is time to get more purposeful in my preschool planning with Tiger Boy.  We have been loosely following a curriculum until now, but I think he is ready for more.  I am going to try to figure out more things to do with him this weekend.  I know I need to find things that hold his interest and are fun.  I want him to enjoy doing school and not just get it done.  Hopefully, by my spending more time with him on school he will learn and enjoy it at the same time.

Veggie Tales: Robin Good

Today I sat with my two big kids and watched Veggie Tales newest DVD.  It is called Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men.

About the show:
Theres no hurt too big for God! Robin Good has a mission - fundraising from the rich and giving to the poor! But when a greedy Prince starts stealing the townspeople’s hams, donations are down and Robin’s band of friends desert him to give robbing a try. Can Robin overcome his hurt, show his friends what’s right and restore the townspeople's hope? 

My thoughts:
I enjoyed this very much.  Once again Veggie Tales has done a great job in making a quality story for kids and adults to all enjoy. It tells of the importance of giving all our hurts over to God because he is always there for us.

Tiger Boy's Thoughts (age 4):
I liked it. I liked when Bob gave a ham to the monster.

Sugar Plum's Thoughts (age 6):
My favorite part was when the Prince was sleeping with his teddy bear and said Mama.  I learned that God never stops loving you and you can talk to God when you are sad.  I liked it a lot.

The DVD also features:An adorable short video starring Junior Asparagus: "Lenny and the Lost Birthday". Plays at the start of the show before the main feature.

A digital short that is both hilarious and educational, teaching kids about what a Leap Year means: "Larry's Leapin' Leap Year". Watch it on the DVD and also here:

I am happy to say that Veggie Tales has offered to give a copy of this great new DVD to someone who reads my little blog.

As we went to bed last night it was snowing big fluffy white flakes.  This morning we work up to everything covered in the most beautiful white blanket of snow.  I am very anxious for spring and getting to be outside more but it sure is beautiful to look at.
