Horton Hears a Who

Just wanted to let you know that kids got a good point out of that movie. Shawn said, even though there are little people, they are still important and still a person.

Yep, that is what they said in the movie too. Even though you may be a small person, you are still a person!!!!

Also in the movie, the female kangaroo, (Carol Burnett's voice) said about Horton talking to the spot on the flower, if you can't see them they must not be real!

That is a good point: Just because you can't see God the Father, does that mean that He is not real? No wonder it is hard for people to grasp things at times and understand the true meaning. Anyway, I have to go outside and do some raking and Shawn going to shoot his 22.

Take Care!

Hey Shelly, It was a cute movie, and that point sure wasn't lost! Thought I'd answer your question about Super Word Saturday. The kids pick out their word by opening the dictionary, closing their eyes and pointing or sliding their hand. whatever word they stop at is their word. If it's a word they already know really well we may do it a second time. I explain it further in the origninal post here: http://astonegatherer.blogspot.com/2008/02/super-word-saturday.html
The kids and I really have fun doing this!

I loved that movie too. It had such a pro life message to me. Just because you can't see your baby doesn't mean that he/she is not there.

Blessings, Joanne
