Tonight for family home evening we had a guest speaker. hee hee.
We are teaching our littles on everything Italy for our trip this summer. Tonight we watched a spot on Venice. The little girls kept saying "we have been there" when they would show highlights of the inside of churches. The seem to remember last summer more than we imagined they would.
Caroline asked if they have sharks in the water where the boats are and informed us she does not want to go back on the airplane with no windows. (you and me both girlfriend!)
Sally Jane said she wants some of the crab they showed at the restaurant.
And we learned a Lion with wings is the mascot of Venice.
Also today "Wonder Pet's" show was in Venice perfect lead in to tonight. I was able to buy the episode off of itunes so the girls can watch it over and over. So when we ride the gondola they can say "hey this is where ming ming was"
So thanks Rick Steves for coming to family home evening and getting us excited for our trip.
Thanks to everyone who has been sending me Italy tips. Cinque Terre was at the top of our list and after every one's recommendations it will for sure stay there. We are staying at military bases all through out our trip which such a blessing and so cost effective.
