We sold a guinea pig and cage, a rabbit, collected dollars from another guinea pig sale, did some Christmas shopping and watched "rise of the guardians".
Homeschooling part: critique the movie. "I liked it mom. I wouldn't change anything except I wish one of the children would have dreamed up a Spider FBI person to help fight the bad guy."
So what do the people stand for? He remembered that Santa is wonder and the teeth fairy help you remember things. Oh... and Jack Frost likes to have fun.
My thoughts were: overall the move was a good movie. In our household we believe that God is the provider of all things, not Santa or the Sandman or anything else. But it was fun to watch. The lad thinks it is silly that people believe in Santa and such like because God loves us mom right?
I found it interesting how they brought out that the mature Guardians had for the most part forgotten about the children, and Jack Frost reminded them of the children.
But in this household we know that the holidays are not all about making children happy. They aren't. It's a good side bonus. But Christmas is remembering and looking forward to Christ. Easter is knowing what he did for us, his very own children. The tooth fairy...ack...it's just fun to get money for your teeth. Sandman doesn't even register for me. And the Bogeyman and Jack Frost? Well...they are pretend. And pretending makes for VERY good stories. :)
