Dolphin Tale 2 #giveaway


Friends, I just got home from a really sweet movie.  Dolphin Tale 2, the continuation of the story of Winter, the dolphin with the prosthetic tail.  


Friday, September 12, is homeschool day for this movie.  Let's show the movie industry that we want family friendly movies!  Vote with your wallet and see a great movie.


Honestly, one of my favorite parts of the movie was during the credits at the end when they show all sorts of people wearing prosthetics getting to meet Winter.  As the mom of 2 girls with limb differences, it made me want to pack the whole family up on a field trip to Florida to go meet Winter in person.

Walking out of the air conditioned theater into the warm summer evening, I had a big smile on my face.  Driving home, I realized why.  Winter's story helps normalize limb differences.  Maybe the kids who see this movie won't be the ones who come up to Hannah and Katie at the park and say, "Why do you have a robot leg?"

Along with the release of the movie, there is a supplemental homeschool curriculum you can access online!  It goes over everything you could ever want to know about dolphins in video or .pdf form.


Check out the cool Dolphin Tale 2 sunglasses!  Brianna's favorite character was the crazy pelican who followed the sea turtle around.


Along with this cool t-shirt that Eli wore to the movie tonight.  Eli liked the prosthetist the best.  I have to admit, his line, "I have jars of peanut butter older than you," was pretty hilarious.
