Fun Friday, CD Edition and a second giveaway!

We tease a lot in my house that what History my sons know they learned from Adventures in Odyssey.  Sad to say, that may not be far from the truth!  We started collecting this series years ago when the girls were small and they listened to them on- wait for it, TAPES!  Now we have graduated to CDs- lot and lots of them.

Do you have any?  They are about a great little town called Odyssey and a fun place called Whit's End.  Through the magic of imagination, the characters visit all sorts of places in many different time periods.  Lots of fun fiction telling lots of fun real facts!  And all from a Christian point of view.  Though my older son listens to them almost every night before he goes to bed, we also listen to them when we are traveling.  It is one of the few series I know of that is enjoyable to listen to at any age.

In fact the kids have listened to them so much they can name a CD and start reciting it. It has become sort of a game in my house.   It is like living with a group of actors around here.  Cute most of the time, annoying, well sometimes!  ;)  But I can say, there are far worse things to have memorized and I love that they can listen to something that has good clean fun, biblical morals and standards and teach a little history on the side.

This week for you I have Adventures In Odyssey Christmas Classics, a collection of 12 Christmas episodes, to giveaway!  Have fun entering!

  7. My favorite Christmas tradition is on Christmas Eve we get up early and go see Santa and get pictures. We then go to the 3 o'clock service at church and head home for pizza dinner. The girls open their Christmas Eve gift, new pj's and we exchange secret Santa gifts. We read The night before Christmas before bed.
