GIRLS NEED TO GET THEIR HANDS DIRTY TOO

Everyday when I come home from work with the kids, the first thing they want to do is go in the backyard and play.  They both love to ride their bikes, scooters, trikes, jump in the trampoline or play in the dirt.  It works out great because it keeps them busy while I am cooking dinner. Yesterday she went straight for her favorite dirt digging spot.  Oh that little face… It is so cute to listen to her while she…

I WAS POSSESSED…

One of my favorite things about this past weekend was that the temperature is finally cooling down! It is so nice to just have a light sweater on while you are outside and there is a slight breeze in the air. I Love fall! Another one of my favorite things was, The Hubs and I went out for a late lunch/early dinner date. We went to a Mexican restaurant that we hadn’t been to in years. Their food is sssooooo…

Bryce and I glued all the feathers and feet on with a hot glue gun. On the back of each feather is something he is thankful for. Some of his feathers got a…

All I found in reading a couple of studies is that the majority were concerned about the lack of movement/exercise that the child could miss out on . Also the…

TRICK-OR-TREAT

We had a great Halloween, a little over whelming but overall a good day. In the morning we did school and them we made these really cool spiders.  The instructions said that we just needed regular glue; but that wasn’t cutting it. I had to break out my handy-dandy hot glue gun! He loved it! That was the first time I had let him us the hot glue gun, but he did a great job. Aren’t they cute!? Then in…
