Here We Go

If you haven't seen this DVD you need to watch it. Historical, educational, inspirational, motivational, thought provoking, moving... all on 7 wonderous discs. I especially love the Abigail Adams part of it.  Now don't let the 7 disc thing hinder your curiosity. Once you pop in the first disc it won't be daunting, you'll be so into it. Its like Harry Potter, you're so sad when its finally over. I have one warning though- there is a tar and feather part (in the first one or second, I can't remember) that may have scarred me for life. Only boys should see that scene. Then there's the part where they saw that guy's leg off. I'm not old enough for that part yet either.
On a lighter note, this is officially my favorite children's book. I've probably posted this book before but we've been reading again lately and its one of those books that gets better and better the more you read it. The illustrations fill my soul, it rhymes, and the story line is super clever.
