A Japanese television show asked to use a video of Jason running from his shadow, and it turned out pretty cute. For some reason the video may not appear on your phone - sorry, you need a computer for this one!
If you'd like to see his Japanese television appearance, click here. He appears at 3:45.
We've added a playlist to our Youtube account that our children enjoy. It's a short compilation of workout videos. I like the Fitness Blender the best, but the kids enjoy pretending to be animals. If you know of any other good workout videos for kids on Youtube, please share them.
You can create a video of your family dancing to several Christmas songs and it doesn't take long at all to set up.
Here's how I've been doing:
I am expecting a new baby brother or sister in March (I don't know what it is, since my parents aren't finding out) and I'm now learning how to read. I love books.
My brother seems to be quite the character too - click here to see a video of him running from his own shadow and yelling "No!" At one point he thinks he's gotten away. It's cute and very funny if you'd like a laugh.
Shaquille O'Neil tweeted about my video the other day. Click here to see it. It's so funny to see who has discovered the video!
A little while back Rachel went to her first play. It was Grease (she's a huge fan). We were in the front row, and she behaved wonderfully. She had two dates - Daddy and Papa (her grandfather).
It was put on by the Coast Guard Academy, which is near where we live, and Rachel kept on pointing out when "they got a part wrong," since the play was different than the movie. She knows the movie too well!
She did NOT like it at all when Sandy slapped Patty Simcox towards the end.
"I don't like this Sandy, Daddy."
("Yes, she's not very nice.")
However, all was forgiven when she was able to take a picture with Sandy after the show. Rachel was in her Rydell High outfit, which was a Halloween costume we brought out again for the show. It was a hit with the cast. I've included a picture of her at home before the show with her red jacket and pin, one during intermission with a sideways pose, and one with her and the girl playing Sandy.
Hope you enjoy the new pictures! Summer is approaching here in New England and we can't wait!
Lately Rachel has been learning to read and do simple math facts. We may have mentioned this in a previous post, but Starfall.com is a great site for children learning their letters and letter sounds. Please feel free to add any sites you know that you enjoy as well.
We recently posted a video of Rachel saying all of her presidents (click here to see it), and wanted to post a private video for blog visitors only. It's Rachel singing "Five Little Monkeys" and learning subtraction. It's really cool to see her learn these things each day right in front of our eyes.
