Thing 13

I am always amazed at what you can find on YouTube! My children are constantly sharing different wacky things that they have found and I don't even know how you would even think to search for some of these things! I was surprised at the number of educational type videos you can find. I recently used a YouTube site when I was trying to help one of my kids with their math homework and we were disagreeing on how to apply a formula. We found a demonstration of the formula on YouTube that solved our dilemma. In my own classroom, I use YouTube every year to show part of Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech.
There are some very cute videos that I can watch over and over. A lot of people know about Charlie bit my finger and I like that one. I had never seen the Evolution of Dance until 23 Things and that was pretty funny! I also enjoy the wedding dance down the aisle (JK Wedding Entrance Dance). My favorite YouTube video has to be 99 Goalie Diving Save...with my son as the goalie. Brendan has wanted to post a video forever and he finally got his chance when he made an incredible save in overtime during the International Silversticks Tournament in Sarnia in January. The video quality isn't superb, but I am grateful that someone actually captured that save on tape! You'll see he makes the first stop and then dives across the net for the second stop. Their team ended up winning the game and the biggest tournament in North America! Not many moment like these, so we are pretty proud of him and his entire team :-)
