I think it is no secret that my all time favorite movie is “The Sound of Music.” Has been since I was little. I remember watching it and “The Swiss Family Robinson” nearly every Sunday. Loved, loved, loved them. Shortly after we were married Dave bought me the VHS version. Then a few years ago, he surprised me with the DVD. We watched it at that time, and it has been put away since. I decided it was high time I introduced the awesomeness to my kiddos. It was Sunday and somehow all the Veggie Tales got deleted off the DVR, Dave was at choir practice, I needed a shower and wanted some peace & quiet. I really didn’t think they would last more than 15 minutes. Well after nearly an hour I came down and found this:
they were glued; they loved it! Conner told me he thought he understood the story. I explained it to him – how could he possibly understand WWII, and I realized what a history lesson it really is. He also can now sing Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Do. I am so excited that I can now sit down and enjoy it with my family…..I hope they get as excited about it when they are my age!
