The Titanic

This picture is about a year old, but it still plays a big part in our lives...:)

Richard loves the Titanic. We have watched every movie, documentary, and every book that our public library has about the Titanic. Ben recently recorded The Titanic (you know, the one with Kate Winslet and Leonardo de Caprio) from DVR and Richard constantly asks to watch it. It's great from TV because there is nothing you have to fast forward though...:) I used to have to watch it with him so I could get through certain parts that aren't meant for 4 year old's eyes or ears. I don't like watching it because it always makes me cry...He loves the sinking part the best as you can see from the picture. This is an egg carton that Ben covered with construction paper and is complete with 4 funnels (the last one is fake of course) and they come out as the ship sinks. It's quite fascinating, you should read about the Titanic! "The Titanic is sinking!" is a very familiar phrase around our house.
