Kid Friendly Picnic

Some of the best memories I have are from when the kiddos were 4 &5 and we would grab a picnic basket and head to the park. I always loved the idea of a picnic, but laying down the blanket and setting up our meal was never quite as perfect as I envisioned it to…

Legoland- safe to stay!

We just returned from such a fun visit to Legoland! I know it may seem odd that I’m speaking about travel during such a strange (and scary) time. However, a little backstory, I’m originally from South Florida and every summer we meet my parents in central Florida for a short visit and to be near…

The reality is, if you’re shaky on the basic foundations of math, you’re limited in the skills you need to move onto the next steps. I remember when my son would come home with failing grades (after failing grades) in math, last year. My heart sunk. I was terrified…

Before you think, eww, aren’t those candy bars way too old for use? Calm down, Karen. I’m just talking about the ones that have a long shelf life and have clearly NOT expired 🙂 Safety first, guys. On to the sweet stuff (and why you’re here)! So if your kids have special training in being…
