Earth to Echo opens in theaters this July 2nd, 2014 near you.  It will remind you that we may not be alone on this planet after all.  The story begins with three best friends, Tuck, Munch and Alex, all have to move in three days because the city has imposed eminent domain.  New highway construction is causing the fate of the entire neighborhood to be demolished.  All three of the boys feel helpless and sad by everything that is happening.  Two days before the big move, the boys start receiving cryptic signals on their cells phones which spark their adventureous curiousity.  They start to believe there is something behind these signals and all three boys agree to go on one last adventure to find out what is happening.  Without telling their parents they follow what has turned out to be a map on their phones.  The boys are lead to a location in which they find an extraterestrial that resembles an owl when strange things begin to happen.  As their adventure continues, they connect with their classmate and neighbor Emma, who helps them on their adventureous journey to save Echo the modern E.T. of 2014.  This movie made me realize just how smart, savvy and resourceful kids can be when they are given the opportunity.  This message continued when our family was invited to interview the young cast of the movie.  Please watch the interview of my two boys and Roman, from as they received a rare opportunity to be movie critics and media for a day.

Earth to Echo is a great family movie with lots of adventure.  Being reviewed as the modern day ET, Earth to Echo delivers an amazing family message.  The movie depicts true to life family struggles and engages audiences as a result.  In addition to the interviews with the cast, we got the opportunity to interview the producer, director and writter of the movie allowing for a well rounded movie experience.  The message is incredible from these gentlemen.  Listen below, you won't be disappointed.  If you enjoyed The Iron Giant and ET, go see Earth to Echo!

"You are never to little to make a difference!"

Cast: Teo Halm, Brian "Astro" Bradley, Reese Hartwig and Ella Linnea Wahlestedt

State Testing and a letter of encouragement

State Testing CCSS SBAC is starting next week for our area.  This semester, my son's fourth grade teacher has asked that I write him a letter of encouragement.  She gave us a few weeks notice. I have, in the past few days, written a few handwritten notes of encouragement. Then, I would wake up the next day realizing that it was not loving enough and second guessing myself. This task has been a little hard for me.  Then, the final email reminder came from the teacher. It read as follow: "This is just a friendly reminder to please send a letter of encouragement to your student to be opened this coming Monday, May 1. Students will be given the letters prior to taking their first test."  Oh my goodness, I have to get it done!!! So, I put on my big girl pants and re-wrote the letter for the 5th time. This time, I made it classroom friendly and left out lots of the I love you's and all the mushy stuff I had written before. The letter went something like this:  Dea

How to make a California Mission Model.

Learn how to make a California Mission Model at home or in the classroom. We made this project as part of the California Public School Fourth grade requirement in a group setting. Continue to read on to get the supply list and instructions for a successful mission model. On an ordinary day, I was reminded how amazing kids really are when there are no limits. Just as equally amazing are the teachers who guide them and teach them everyday.  I am very thankful for the opportunity that I was given as a parent volunteer.  The day was like a beautiful dance where parents, teachers and students came together for a common goal. The goal was to make models of California Missions from a simple picture and lots of cardboard.  I can honestly say the goal was reached and everyone deserved an "A".
