Certainly every one of you knows that we are still waiting on our household goods shipment and that my children have been limited to about one toy and a few odds and ends we've picked up or been sent since we packed in January. And now that we're coming to the end of month 4 in suitcases, we're all growing a teensy weensy weary of it all.
Mr. YH had the biggest conference of the year two weeks ago and we hardly saw him. Desperate for something novel, I showed the kids You Tube videos. We watched elephants, camels, horses, and pigs being born. We watched bullet trains in Japan, jets landing on air craft carriers, and volcanoes exploding. And then my friend Kelly told me about Sesame Street's online site where we could watch classic clips from the show.
Oh. my. word! My kids love these! And truth be told, I love them, too! We just sat here for 30 minutes watching one clip after another before their bed time and had so much fun laughing and snuggling together in front of the computer. After I put them to bed, I looked around online and found the Old School Sesame Street volume 2 (the episodes from when I was a little girl) on half.com for about half the price it was retailing for. This is going to be such a fun surprise for them! And I can't wait for them to see Lily Tomlin sitting in that huge chair looking so small or when Big Bird wants everyone to meet Snuffy but they don't believe he really exists!
