Day 1: I remembered!!!

This is what I was going to tell you about on Friday!
Have you heard about the Rachel and the TreeSchoolers Kickstarter Project? It's Rachel Coleman. You know... Rachel from Signing Time! We have loved all of the Two Little Hands products. And I'm pretty sure we were the first to have a Turtle Rock birthday party! We've just introduced Cupcake to Potty Time {affiliate link}. She loves reading the "Hopkins potty book"{affiliate link}. Well, you didn't think that this amazingly talented family was done, did you? They are working on putting together a complete pre-school curriculum that has been deemed "too educational for TV". Yeah, they're pretty proud of that (as well they should be)! But that means that if the project wants to get off the ground, they need backers. If the TV execs aren't going to do it, then it's up to us to demand better quality shows for our kids and support them. You can get a sneak peek below:

Check out their Kickstarter Campaign. They've got some great rewards for different donation levels. After only 6 days, they are over halfway to their goal! This is going to happen! Tweet it, share it, blog it, spread the word!

Oh, and while I was poking around on Kickstarter, I found this Zach Braff project about a movie he wants to produce. It's already more than fully funded so, watch for it! Here's the synopsis:

"Wish I Was Here" is the story of Aidan Bloom (played by me), a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he'd always dreamed he'd be as a little kid. 
When his ailing father can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids (ages 5 and 12) and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them. 
The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to scrap the traditional academic curriculum and come up with his own. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn't find.
It was written by my brother, Adam, and me last summer.
