This past week, Patch the Pirate visited our church and led our children’s choir in a concert on Sunday night. It was a great time! I grew up listening to Patch the Pirate on cassette tapes, so this was nostalgic for me.

My kids actually haven’t listened to many of the Patch the Pirate stories that I had growing up, but they do know most of the songs.  Our brilliant Juniors choir leader, Mrs. Lanett Grant, gave us a CD of all the songs that the children were supposed to know for the concert, and my kids loved it. I think we are going to need to find a way to get some of the stories on CD for car rides now!

I only have one video that I have to share in this post. My middle child, Ian, has a fun personality, and he is very good at making people laugh. We never know what he is going to do when he is onstage!  In this song, Ian was having trouble with telling his left from his right!

I apologize for the very bumpy video that quite possibly will make you seasick! I was laughing so hard that I was crying and was having a very hard time holding on to the video camera! Note to self for next time: Bring a tripod!

    Great video. Very funny.

    Left/right is hard for some kids. There are strategies I’m sure but the easiest one I can think of, off the top of my head, may be combined with a fashion statement. Some kids (even boys) wear friendship bracelets, woven out of leather or braided cord. Putting it on one particular wrist … the right if they’re right handed and have them get used to associating the bracelet hand with right may help.

    I’m sure he’ll get it eventually. 🙂

      I’m sure he will too 🙂 He just took a history test today that had to do with telling north, south, east, and west and he did great on it. I like the idea of the bracelet though. I’ll have to remember that for my younger kids.

Be geeky with us!
