I have to say we enjoy our time in the library as much as we enjoy the books we check out to read at home. Next time you’re in need of a time-filler, or even a Friday night activity hit up your local library. Find a cozy corner with a stack of books and just read! Then get another stack to check out and take home with you. So many books, so little time!! Happy reading!
This is the first year in many years that I’ve had a child at the public school. 5 are at home with me, being homeschooled, but my 8th and 10th grader are now attending the public school, and it’s going great. I love homeschooling, but it’s also been a perfect time for both of the oldest to transition. A lot of things are new to me, such as having to think about their bodies being fed, outside of the home. Most of the time they eat school lunch, but they’re already getting burned out and have been itching for something new, or something from home. So, I’ve been looking into making lunches for them, at least for some of the days, and I’ve found some awesome top-rated school lunch products that I’ve been contemplating.
There are lots of ideas online of ways to ask to school dances, but what about ways to ANSWER to school dances?? ‘Or so she says…’ to the rescue! My oldest son is a sophomore and just got asked to his first school dance, the Fall Ball. The girl that asked him did it in such a cute way. Now, it’s his turn to answer. It sounds like the ‘answering’ part isn’t a tradition in all states, from what I’ve gathered. But, it definitely is a tradition here in Utah. Simply saying ‘yes’ is way too boring. It needs to be clever and fun, and we’ve had lots of fun coming up with these 25 creative ways to answer to school dances.
This summer my kids and I will be world travelers! With the help of the internet, the local library, and the smattering of cultural restaurants in our area, we are going to learn about a new country each week. I am so excited to expose my kids to the colors, sights, sounds and tastes of other nations.
If you are planning a trip to Disneyland, you’re definitely going to want to get your hands on this book of Disneyland tips!
And, guess what…
Get Away Today already saves you as much as possible on your Disneyland vacation, but we have a little EXTRA something’-somethin’ for you in the back of the Disneyland tips ebook, worth even MORE than the book itself. Because their prices are already so low, they don’t offer any extra money off very often, so this is AWESOME, you guys. If you’re looking to save a few more bucks, this will definitely help!!!
Every little girl wants to be a princess, so today, we are going to show you some fun and easy princess hairstyles you can do at home or on the road. The best part – most of these styles can be done in less than five minutes!
I love getting together with my family to spend quality time together, laughing, enjoying each other’s company and indulging in some delicious food. Luckily I’ve never had to host a big Easter dinner or brunch, but I do have little kids that get anxious and impatient when it comes to waiting for everyone to arrive. I love having things available to entertain them as they wait. This free printable Easter word search would be a great addition to any Easter family get together.

My kindergartner is just starting to learn math facts. So far she is doing really well and has caught on quickly. I thought it would be fun to create a math fact sheet centering around Valentine’s Day. So cupid counting was created. I wanted to create something that could be used over and over again and help understanding the various combinations in adding up to different numbers.
It’s a good time of the school year to check in with your kids. How are they adjusting to the new year of school work? How are things going with friends? How are their study habits? For us, it’s been just long enough to get familiar with the new schedule but still early enough that there is plenty of time for adjustments to prepare our kids for success at school! Reviewing these twelve habits and techniques can ensure that your student is adapting to the rigors of the school year.
