Our Summer has been flying by! I cannot believe it’s almost August! How on earth did that happen? It feels like just yesterday that Little One got off the school bus on her last day of grade 1! It’s hard to believe that she’ll be going into grade 2 soon!
Our Summer has been jam packed with Summer camp, activities, beach days, swimming, playing, farm chores, traveling, camping, birthday parties, BBQs, get togethers, play dates, camp fires, dinner parties and more. It sounds fun and exciting, but I’m feeling like some downtime is much needed.
The idea of mandatory quiet time sounds good!
For moments of quiet time, Little One and I have been snuggling up and watching Dragons: Race to the Edge on Netflix.
Little One often lives in her own little world. Though she is in the presence of many friends a lot of the time, she is also an only child. I often wonder if that has much to do with her being so imaginative — having to make her own fun and adventures since she doesn’t have a sibling around all the time to play with.
One of her latest interests is the world of dragons and mystical journeys.
Dragons: Race to the Edge
Soaring beyond their home on the island of Berk in search of new dragons, Dragons: Race to the Edge introduces some of the most exciting dragons yet, each with its own amazing abilities — shock
waves, cannon balls and fire blasts, just to name a few.
This summer, Hiccup and Toothless, from the critically acclaimed How to Train Your Dragon films are embarking on unparalleled adventures in the all-new Netflix original series Dragons: Race to the Edge –
and inviting you along for the dragon ride.
Let us know if you and your family are watching it too!
Some other titles we have watched this month:
We watched Penguins of Madagascar the Movie as a family. 92 minutes of fun! Little One loves penguins, and these guys were funnier than I expected them to be! Lots of action-packed scenes and lots of laughter too.
Netflix has enabled me to relive my childhood with some old school titles from my vintage. As a kid, I remember The Goonies being one of my favourite movies in the 80s.
Though I did recall some parts of the movie being a bit scary as a kid, I didn’t think it would be too scary for Little One. She watched the movie all cuddled up with me and enjoyed it, but at night she woke up because she was dreaming about the movie and being trapped in the pirate ship. Maybe she is a bit young for The Goonies.
This brought to mind the types of movies we watched as kids. I’m surprised at some of the movies my brothers and I were allowed to watch back then. I’m not sure if it was because my parents gave us the option to choose what we wanted to watch or they just didn’t know what the titles we chose were about. I recall being a really young child and watching movies like Chucky and other scary movies!
