This whole month we’ve been concentrating on getting our kids ready for school and preparing them to have the best year ever! Today, I have a fun little experiment to stretch those brain muscles that have been lounging on the couch all summer (at least in my house they have!) My boys love anything to […]

The 2017-2018 school year has just begun here around Ft. Stewart, Georgia! It was a bumpy start but our mornings are becoming more and more organized… we aren’t early risers in this family so besides the first 15 minute fight with trying to wake everyone up, I’d say we are making our way towards successful […]

Tis the season!! The stores are overflowing with pencils, crayons, and glue sticks. The kids are antsy – not quite ready for the structure of a classroom and new responsibilities but suffering from slight boredom due to too much freedom. Or is that just my kiddos?? 🙂 Here in Georgia, the new school year is […]

The boys and I are back with another super fun craft! Last week, we painted with squirt guns here! This week we painted with bubbles! It was fun. And messy. HA! It’s been raining all week, as per usual, here in the south so we’ve been stuck indoors just waiting on a chance to try […]

It’s been birthday party CENTRAL around here and we have accumulated so much junk from all of the goody bags, it is insane.  I’ve been on both ends of the goody bag game – the receiving end, and then I’ve also been the parent putting them together trying to determine what knickknacks would be appropriate […]

Summer break tends to bring out the creativeness in all of us, doesn’t it? Trying to keep these kids busy for two solid months can be quite the challenge… and I don’t mean necessarily entertaining them all the while, but providing the resources to let their imaginations soar. I recently read an article (find it […]

We recycle and all, but it’s a shame to see some of the neat containers that get discarded on a regular basis. Are your family members cereal lovers? Have you ever taken a minute to enjoy the bright colors and cool designs that most boxes feature? I know that sounds crazy, but really, take my […]

My four year old has become quite the outdoors adventurer lately. I am always encouraging my children to spend as much time as they can outside but it seems like they have just recently started to get it. To understand how great fresh air and afternoon walks are. To realize how indispensable the sunshine and […]
