Get Ready to Swim with Limeapple!

I can’t help it. As the weather warms up and the snow disappears (it’s nearly all gone! 🙂 ) I find myself making plans for the summer. You know…beach plans, swimming lesson plans and all sorts of other plans for fun summer activities that we want to do together as a family this year! The list is pretty long…but it just goes to show how much we are looking forward to the hot summer weather.

As our kids have gotten a little older, our pool time and swimming time seems to be increasing every year…and I’m thrilled about that! Swimming is a very important skill for kids to learn, so I’m all for spending more time at the pool practicing skills and learning how to swim well. However, I am NOT a fan of the pool change rooms…at all.

The Love Of Reading ~ GIVEAWAY!

Reading is something that we’ve always encouraged in our children. We’ve read to them (and still do read to them) from the time they were young, and now it’s so neat to see our oldest two branching out and becoming kids who love to read on their own.

DK Discovery Day ~ My First Colors ~ GIVEAWAY!

Colors are one of the first things that young children learn when it comes to “school-ish” topics. Right now we’ve got a little 2 year old who is learning her colors, and it’s always so fun to watch them learn, discover and delightfully share their new-found knowledge of colors with everyone around them. The My First books from DK Canada are one of our favorite ways to introduce colors in a fun, simple way. These books have recently been refreshed and redone and are newly released with updated photography and a fresh, new design.

Easter at Hallmark!!

It’s hard to believe it’s nearly Easter! It was feeling spring-ier last week, but this week we had snow again (ugh!) and it sort of makes you forget that Easter is nearly here too! The Easter crafts started coming home from nursery school this week and it was a good reminder though. Hallmark does their […]
