If We Had A Coffee Date

If we had a morning coffee date this week at my house the first thing you would see when you came in the front door is the Little People slash Imaginext castle village that the little kids built and played with all weekend.

The trees are in full bloom, the grass is turning green again, more flowers are trying to add some color to my front lawn, my kids have outgrown their jeans, and my allergies are already starting up ....more

Finding Fun Activities For Kids On Pinterest

Finding fun ideas to keep my kids entertained during the last little bit of winter has become a full time job for me. I would like to keep them from watching hours of shows on their tablets or playing mindless video games all day.

250 Books In 365 Days: Books I Loved In March

So I’m still going strong on my mission to read 250 books in 365 days. I read a lot in February- face it there’s not a whole lot to do when you are stuck inside for multiple snow days. You can only watch so many kid shows before you start to develop a noticeable twitch ....more
