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.

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!

Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"

A Visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke

A few weeks ago we had a great visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke. There was lots of cousin love...  Oom Emil love....
 And Oom Wilbert and tractor magazine love...
 There were lots of walks with Oma...
 And trips to the beach...
 They were here over Canada, so there was the annual Church Picnic, of course...

 It was a cool day, but no rain.
 But yes, I did wear my sweater on the beach.
 We also took a family morning and visited The Butterfly House
 It was lovely and peaceful and most of the family enjoyed it. Zeke was a little nervous the whole time, but over all did well. We also had a picnic lunch and saw the Young Company Show at the Confederation Center.
We had a great time and were sad to see them go. Hopefully the time will just fly by until our next visit.

What's Going On?

So I have been really bad at blogging lately. Anyway, here are some highlights from the last little bit.

And the biggest news is that Joash's other front tooth fell out. He was pretty excited about this and now has a pretty big hole in his mouth.
