Owlegories Volume 2 - A Review

I was asked by FishFlix.com, a web site that sells Christian DVDs, if I would be willing watch and review a DVD they carry. I of course said sure. I mean who doesn't want a free movie? I asked for kids video and just a few days ago Owlegories Vol 2 DVD arrived in our mailbox.

I had my kids (age 5 and 3) watch it with me. The DVD started with a catchy opening song and cute owls. This dvd has three short episodes that follow the same formula. The owls arrive at school and their teacher gives them a mission to accomplish at the place they are visiting for the day. The mission always have something physical they need to find and something they need to learn about God or what it means to be a follower of Christ. There is also a "bad guy" who tries to stop the kids from accomplishing their mission. But he is never successful. At the end of each episode there is a quick little recap and a teaching moment from a well known author or pastor to really bring the lesson home.

It was clear from the start that both of my kids were enjoying what they were watching. They laughed and they learned things about God. They walked around the house singing the songs and told their dad all about it at supper time. But the real thing that told me they liked it was when they asked to watch it again the next day. My 5 year old said it was funny, but he was a little scared of the bad guy.

As a parent, I liked it as well. The lesson from nature are simple enough that we can continue to talk about them in our day to day lives. The humor is one that both kids and adults can find funny. The only thing that really bothered me about it was that in the episode about "The Ant," the owls go to collect maple syrup for pancakes and it appears as though maple syrup that you eat comes right out of the trees like that, which is not right at all. But, the truth about God and what it means to follow him greatly over shadows any inaccuracies like how maple syrup is made.

Thanks to FishFlix.com for the great DVD!

I was a given a copy of Owlegories by FishFlixs.com in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
