Lucy’s Lab

I have several children in our home that love to read, and I will readily admit, that I’m thrilled that they love books. To me, a love of good books is very important. The ability to sit down and spend an hour or two reading is something that I love to see our kids do […]

Scholastic Monday ~ The Heart’s Song

Loss is a part of life. It is a hard part of life…a part of life that we often want to avoid, shy away from or ignore (if we can!). The thing is that the loss of a loved one can be very difficult. Whether it is through death or through moving on or moving away […]

Personalized to a ‘T’ ~ Wonderbly

We love to read in our home. From reading aloud to the kids, to reading our own books on our own time, to writing our own stories and then reading them! It’s a great pastime and you have already guessed, but I hope to pass on the love of reading to all of our children. […]

Scholastic Monday ~ If You’re Thankful and You Know It!

We love to sing in our home. We don’t find time for it every week, but when we do, the whole family gets involved…with singing, playing instruments and of course actions (or maybe some never-seen-before dance moves! haha) One song that has been a favorite from the very beginning for the younger kids is “If You’re […]
