A Back Yard War Film


A couple summers ago, while our three oldest were working their summer jobs and I was just trying to survive the third trimester of my last pregnancy by napping with the toddler nearly every day, I woke up one afternoon to see our remaining four children lying on the grass in the back yard editing a dramatic war film they had just created.

I was impressed. So were their older siblings when they got home from work!

I've been meaning to share it with you all ever since and finally uploaded it to YouTube. Enjoy!

In remembrance of those who gave the ultimate price for our freedom!


  1. That is so impressive!! The acting and the cinematography!! Well done, so impressed guys!!

  2. Well done! You have a future filmmaker and actors on your hands! :)

  3. That's so great! They did a fantastic job!

  4. Very impressive! Not only is the production professional, but paying homage to those who made the ultimate sacrifice reveals the filmmakers own compassion, respect and maturity. Their parents need to take a bow for instilling eternal values and encouraging amazing creativity. Brilliant all around.
