It’s hard to believe, but it’s almost Valentine’s Day already! Rather than send your kids to schools armed with pre-printed cards for classmates, why not let them make their own? Or better yet, invite a few friends over and host a Valentine’s Day Crafternoon. Continue reading
The summer is winding down and so is the Super Fun Summer Challenge. See the recap for week 4 below: Continue reading
OMG! I can’t believe it’s already August! The summer just started and it’s almost over. We only have 2 weeks left before the Super Fun Summer Challenge ends. Here’s a quick recap of week 3: Continue reading
I am working out of town this week and have had the worst internet connection ever! I literally tried to post this blog for like 8 hours yesterday and it just wasn’t happening. So I’m a day late but I finally got it to go through.
Journey has finished camp for the summer and has taken her challenge on the road. I am so glad I have this to keep her busy! As we wrap up the challenge for week 3, here’s a quick recap of week 2. Continue reading
The Super Fun Summer Challenge is off to a great start! Journey literally screamed with joy when she got her envelope. I hope your kids are having as much fun completing their first challenge as she is. Continue reading
As soon as school was out, Journey said to me, “I wonder if I’m going to get picked to do that fun challenge again this summer.” Even though she’s in summer camp, she still has quite a bit of free time when she gets home.

But no matter what she has going on in the back seat, she still manages to ask me the dreaded question, “Are we there yet?” at least once an hour. Then she spends the next 5 minutes whining about how it is “going to take forever!” and blah, blah, blah. By the time we get to our destination, I’m ready to barricade myself in a room with a bottle of wine! Continue reading
