This week is Spring Break for us and we have been busy prepping for our annual family Easter egg hunt. My boys helped me fill a bundle of plastic Easter eggs with candy and we had a few left over to do something fun with. My kindergartener is loving learning to read so I thought these Easter Egg Phonics would be fun. [Read more...]
Can you believe that it is already Easter time?? Easter is actually later this year but it still seems like the time is going really fast. We have a tradition of making up fun and easy holiday breakfasts and last year we made fun Easter Bunny pancakes. This year I decided to make this Baby Chick Easter Breakfast. [Read more...]
Dancing Fruit Experiment
Satruday Science Blog Hop and Link Up
It’s Saturday which means it is time for Saturday Science. Every Saturday I will be linking up with some amazing bloggers to bring you the Saturday Science Blog Hop and Link Up. I still remember the day in 5th grade when my teacher showed us the Dancing Fruit experiment for the first time.

This is probably one of the simplest science projects you could possibly do, and you know how much we love simple science.

We received: [Read more...]
Little Boys Treasures
I’ve been a mom of boys now for going on 11 years and pretty much everything I have learned has been taught by experience. But there is one thing that I wasn’t prepared for and that I didn’t realize was a “boy” thing until I had boys: They love treasures and not the kind of treasures you would expect. In fact, any random object can become a treasure to them. I always had envisioned my boys’ rooms decorated like Pottery Barn magazines with everything in its place and organized and my boys acting like little gentlemen (I was WAY off on that one) but what I failed to realize is that the silliest things can become prized possessions for little boys and getting rid of little boys’ treasures is harder than you might think.
