REVIEW:
So much fun!
What an awesome soundtrack too! I found myself singing along right from the beginning.
I really liked how this film gently explains to young minds about death and dying. The explanation given was fantastic. Usually kids wouldn't understand, but this film had a clever way of reasoning and reassuring the child. I loved how it all went down.
Parents will enjoy this movie but it really is for the kids, aged 6-12.

3/5

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
