Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:03

Narrator: Male

Polite Parrot Excerpt:

As the sailboat wondered where Zig-Zag had gone she spotted a bright red bird zig-zagging her way. She smiled and announced to the others in her best pirate voice. “Be ye ready? I spy a scurvy pirate bird on the wind.”

Manny the motorboat followed her gaze to the red bird. Sure enough, there were blue and yellow feathers on the bird’s wings and a tell-tale patch of black feathers over one eye. Manny responded eagerly in his best pirate voice.  “Aye! Zig Zag be returning to seek out the lost pirate booty.”

Sandy the sailboat had been teaching all the boats how to speak Pirate ever since Zig-Zag’s last arrival. She giggled as the pirate bird grew closer and asked, “Yarrrr me hearties. Is everyone shipshape and ready for an adventure?”

“Shiver me Timbers.” Teagan the tugboat said. “Be Zig-Zag returning this day?”

Almost in response the pirate parrot landed on Sandy’s bow and said, “Good morning, fine yacht. Would you be able to assist me in the search for my treasure?”

The boats sat silently, surprised at how the pirate parrot’s manners had changed.

Ronald’s Turn: a calming kids’ story

Ronald’s Turn: a calming kids’ story

The bridge project is almost done. Today is Ronald’s turn to shine. The roller gets to put the finishing touches on the bridge!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:05

Narrator: Male

Ronald’s Turn Excerpt:

“We get to finish the bridge today!” Dizzy said. “Are you excited Ronald?” Ronald smiled and said, “Absolutely!” Although he started to feel a little sad. That was the second time someone mentioned that the bridge would be finished today. It would be completed, and the roller had hardly done anything. Ronald took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath) and concentrated on the fun he would have working with the team today. While Ronald talked himself back up, the contractor joined the construction vehicles.

“Good morning, everyone. Today, as I’m sure you all know, we’ll be finishing up the bridge. Barry the Barge will meet us at the water again and is ready to carry you across. Connor, Barry will help you place the slabs that Dizzy poured last week. Ellie, Barry will carry you, Danny and Dory to add the asphalt. Ronald, you’ll finish up by smoothing the road out. Dizzy, we don’t have anything for you today. We’ll see you when we get back.” Then with a smile the Contractor said. “OK! Let’s get this done.”

Today’s Meditation: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.

Bridge Building Excerpt:

While the construction vehicles shared their support for Ronald the contractor joined them. “Good morning, everyone. Today, we’ll be getting a little more help.

Ellie, Barry will carry you, Danny and Dory over to the other side so that you can clear out an area for the foundation there. Dizzy you’ll be busy pouring the slabs for the road base. Ronald we’ll need you next time, I promise.”  Then with a smile the Contractor said. “OK! Let’s get started.”

Ronald watched as the crew departed, wishing he could help, but happy he would be there next time. As the crew approached the water, they saw a gigantic flat ship waiting for them. Barry the Barge smiled broadly when he saw the crew arriving.  “Hello everyone! Good to meet you.

Then Brianna shared her striped orange shirt. Mia shared the sunny yellow t-shirt that made everyone smile, and Owen shared his super soft green shirt. Owen gave the old shirt one last hug and handed the it to James. Anora shared her favorite blue t-shirt and Billy shared his purple one. Soon there was a pile of shirts in the family room.

Terrific Toys: kids’ relaxation and story

Terrific Toys: kids’ relaxation and story

There are some terrific toys stuck in the bottom of the toy box. Will Alyssa the doll and Uli the unicorn be able to help them out?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 5:59

Narrator: Male

Terrific Toys Story Excerpt:

“Oh dear.” Alyssa said. “You’ve been stuck down here a while, haven’t you?”

Then Uli asked, “Would you like to be moved where the kids can find you?”

The toys responded, “We’d love that. Do you think the kids will play with us again?”

“Of course!” Alyssa encouraged. “They just need to see you.”

Uli added. “They’ll be excited to see you again. It will be like you’re a brand new toy! Sometimes, the kids forget to put us where we belong, and that’s how we get lost.”

The kind doll shared their plan. “Blocks we just need to get you back into the block container. Cars, same thing, if you’re with the other cars the kids will play with you.”

The unicorn continued, “Books, you belong on the bookshelf. Puzzle pieces, we have to get you back to the puzzle before the kids discover you’re missing. They might stop playing with the puzzle if we don’t. And stuffed animals, you need to be with the other stuffed animals.”

The toys perked up, feeling confident in the plan, and moved to one side of the toy box. Now Uli and Alyssa had space to organize they got right to work.
