GOODBYE BLUE'S, HELLO BROWN!


.


Steve's back! My kids have grown up watching Blue's Clues. And I won't even pretend that I didn't love it as much as they did. The adorable dog, the catchy songs, the great host. We have loved Blue's Clues with Joe, but Steve Burns as the original host was the one who really grabbed our hearts.
.

When he left for college, er, left the show to pursue other career goals, we mourned the loss of new shows featuring Steve but were thankful for dvds. Now he's back on kids' tv, at least in a cameo appearance.

.

While in my room this morning listening to my favorite online Bible teacher (Steve Brown), my teenagedaughter B started excitedly banging on my door telling me to come see....Steve was back! I hurried to the living room to find Steve rocking out to I HOG THE GROUND on a JACK'S BIG MUSIC SHOW video while all seven of my kids happily looked on.


.


We still miss Steve's BLUE days, but this stirs up in us a little hope that one day we'll get to see him performing again on a regular basis. He really does have that something special.
.


WE LOVE YOU, STEVE!

In case you wonder if you're all alone in your great admiration for Steve's talent and your grief over losing him to "college," Roy and I felt the same way about it. Roy had a special appreciation for Steve because he had understood that Steve did all that acting with nothing to work off of other than a still blue screen behind him. Everything else was added in later. Glad to hear that he hasn't completely abandoned kids' shows.
