Owlegories Volume 2 - A Review

I was asked by, 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 for the great DVD!

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

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!

I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

 The little home is full of all sorts of Mo…
