It’s Monday Funday for us, and I made the boys these easy DIY pirate ship snacks. The joys of homeschooling means we get to turn an ordinary Monday into a not so ordinary day. I get so caught up in the day-to-day and today I just wanted my boys to learn a few very important life lessons. It’s not all about counting, reading and writing. Today it’s about not taking your family and friendships for granted. It’s also about remembering that team work is not a chore, but a blessing. Last night I prepared this simple pirate ship snack to surprise the boys with.
My little pirate lovers have been in the love/hate stage with each other. They are finding their places as brothers these days. Fighting over toys and my attention is rough on all of us.
I heard about the Disney Fairies movie Pirate Fairy arrived before it’s available on Blu-ray™ & Digital April 1st. Although the movie sounds to be focused for girls it is anything but a girl only movie. If you have Peter Pan or Jake and The Never Land Pirates fans, the Pirate Fairy is a MUST-OWN. The story focuses on Zarina the dust-keeper fairy who is obsessed with the magic of fairy dust. She gets herself into trouble in Pixie Hollow and flees only to get in more trouble. Zarina finds herself joining the Pirates of Skull Rock, where she becomes the Captain of their ship. Tinker Bell and the friends take you on a magical journey to save Zarina and take her back to Pixie Hollow. With friendships tested Pirate Fairy, is a movie that even mama enjoyed.
My boys enjoy each others company, but sometimes they forget how lucky they are to have each other on their team.
