Friday Show and Tell: Butterfly in the Sky…

Happy Friday! We are finally home from our travels and back into a normal groove. It was a fabulous trip and we wouldn’t change a thing, but it is nice to be back in our own house again. I’m especially grateful for my down pillows. 😉

I have just one thing to share today. Let’s start with a hint: Butterfly in the sky, I can go twice as high…

reading rainbow is on netflix!

READING RAINBOW IS ON NETFLIX! Nate and I discovered this last night and the first thing I did with the kids this morning was put an episode on. Reading Rainbow is a show that I’ve always been sad my kids didn’t have to watch – it ended right before Cate was born. PBS aired episodes until 2009, but I didn’t figure it out until it was too late and our DVR series recording never produced a thing!

My kids are watching the show as I type and all three of them are mesmerized, from age 3 to age 10! And, as a parent, I think the show is even better than I remember it. I love its slower pace, how the show is educational while still fun, and that it’s filled with books, of course! I just wish that Netflix was going to air all 21 seasons (right now they have a selection of episodes on service).

Also, in case you were wondering, I DO still have every word of the song memorized. Impressive, eh? (Okay, I think probably all of us do.)

Happy Watching and Reading!

    Off topic, but can I ask about the awesome looking chair in your picture?? It looks so comfy! Redecorating a lot of our house and I’m curious if this would “fit” my vision. Thanks!

    And Reading Rainbow is amazing! 🙂

    • so, I found that chair at a furniture outlet store – it was the only one in the store and it was only $300! nate wasn’t sure he liked it, but I went and bought it anyway and I am SO glad we did. it’s the best. I had been looking for a midcentury style chair that was still comfy, and this is it! sorry I can’t send you to a website where you can buy it yourself!
