N is for Nest - Willy the Sparrow

N is for Nest.
This is the first week that I'm straying from a Disney movie.
Shocking, I know...
but that's because I have an awesome nostalgic movie to share instead!
I'm interested to see how many of you have seen WILLY THE SPARROW...

I loved this movie growing up, and it has a wonderful message about being kind to animals & respecting all living things. I was so excited when I saw that I could borrow it from our library!

Church Theme: Nephi
Primary/Church Song: 'Nephi's Courage'
Preschool Song: '5 Little Chickadees'
Book: The Best Nest by P.D. Eastman
Movie: Willy the Sparrow

This week definitely didn't go as planned.
Both kids were sick, so we did a lot of taking it easy. Last year we barely got sick at all so I guess this year it's only fair that we have a constant cold running around our family.

Our little Princess had a constant fever & congestion from Saturday until Tuesday, so Monday was filled with lots of cuddles on the couch.

Congestion continues, but we made a giant nest in our living room with rolled blankets & pretended to be birds.

We needed to run a few errands so we did our field trip a couple days early & made a quick stop at the park to count all the different birds we could see. We didn't stay long though because I didn't want them to get more sick than the sniffles they already had & although I remembered their sweatshirts, I forgot mine.

I got about 4.5 hours of broken sleep Wednesday night after dealing with 2 stuffy, tossy-turny kids that couldn't sleep. Little Dudeman got hit with the fever so I gave him some medicine to help bring it down and in doing so, got a tiny drop in my eye as he was trying to spit it out. He was absolutely miserable all day & just wanted to cuddle on the couch, watch movies, & play Sonic with me.
Yep, you heard me right, he was asking for me to play Nintendo...
How could I not when he asked so politely?

Fevers & congestion continued throughout Thursday night, but we got more sleep so that was good. This morning there was lots of congestion & our little Princess developed a tiny cough. Not terrible, but no fun nonetheless. We weren't going anywhere & Little Dudeman wasn't as miserable as the day before so I decided to do the Muffin Tin & movie today...

While watching Willy the Sparrow we had a sliced egg, a ramen noodle nest, grape 'eggs', a Peep, a butterscotch nest w/ JellyBelly eggs, & Reese's eggs.

Hopefully the kids feel better next week!

FYI... If you want to stick to the Disney theme,
I can't think of any good ones that have a lot of nests,
but you can always use The Three Caballeros since they are 3 birds.
(although I plan on saving that for Cinco De Mayo)
If I think of something better, I'll let you know...
