Get Organized & Make Study Time Easier with Post-it Brands New Line of Products

Many people already know I have an addiction to Post-it Brand, I have them all over my desk, the kitchen and on our craft desk. Any possible place that I may need a Post-it Note, you will find a pile of them somewhere. Recently Post-it Brand sent me a bunch of their new lines to assist in making study and back-to-school time a lot more organized, fun and efficient for us! While I am usually really good at offering organizational tips, I tend to be inconsistent in my ways and that is why once I received this product line from […]

Today is day 5 of what to do on Spring Break in New Hampshire and this is what we did …. having no boys until 2pm on this particular day my daughter and I enjoyed breakfast out at Country Kitchen.Of course, I can’t eat eggs but I went ahead and ordered a bagel with sausage and cheese on it. I ended up taking the egg out for fear it would make me sick. I love eggs so much but they don’t love me anymore. My daughter ordered a sampler plate, and honestly I wish I had to, it was yummy! […]

College Tuition Costs What?! Let CampusBookRentals Help Your Student

Last night as Lee and I sat watching an episode of Parenthood together, the topic of college tuition came up. $60,000 a year was the price for this Ivy League school in the show, I watched as Lee’s jaw just about dropped to the floor, apparently somebody hasn’t been up to par with just how expensive college is today and how much more it will cost by the time our children are there. That is why I love sharing sites like CampusBookRentals with you all, because no matter how much college tuition costs, it’s so worth getting your child the […]

Squam Lakes Science Center Field Trip #NH #science #nature

Last week I went on a field trip with my middle child’s class to Squam Lakes Science Center in Holderness, NH where we were able to walk on trails and learn a bit about the nature around us. We saw bears, river otters, foxes, a skunk, a mountain lion and much more. Each chaperone was given a group of children to “watch” and run the trails with, rather walk the trails with. I was with my son and four of his classmates alongside his teacher. Our group, as well as the other groups we ran into during the trip, were […]

He is All Boy – Flashcards for those Raising Little Boys #raisingboys #learning

I have two boys and one girl, or make that one girl then two boys as the girl is the eldest of my three kiddo tribe. This three kiddo tribe is full of fun and laughter but no laughter more than the day He Is All Boy Flashcards showed up for the boys birthday party! These flashcards are truly made for people like me raising a double team of boys who get a kick out of the sound of ketchup bottles making farting noises and blaming their gas on the dog. It’s a boys world around these parts most days, […]

Examination Grades on the Decline

Throughout education there is a large amount of pressure on students to perform, to reflect the things that they have learnt and to earn the grades that secure their futures and will look good on the establishment where they have undertaken their learning. Every year, students are subjected to examinations to test the knowledge they have gained throughout the educational year. It is important for students to listen, learn and revise in order for them to perform well during exams which will not only allow them to pass their courses and schooling but will eventually shape their futures. The recent […]

School Being Restored But Kids Still Learning

It was a sad day when I learned that a water pipe had burst sending thousands of gallons of water through my two younger children’s school, leaving the old building of the school in shambles. The library was full of wet books, the office and the cafeteria where a few places in the school I had heard were full of water and showing signs of damage from the water pipe bursting. I literally cried. Yes, I am an emotional lady these days, but this is a school I went to as a child, the old part of my children’s building […]

Our Spring Break Fun Times Without Spending Money

We didn’t have much for extra cash and it’s a normal work week when Spring Break happens in April here in NH but we made the best of our week, even while going through a medication change with the five year old.

Remember to Give Thanks Where Thanks are Deserved

I am a firm believer that you can never say thank you enough where thanks are deserved! Can you believe that two little words, such as Thank You, can really brighten ones day? Well they can. Case in point, my son AJ, never really had much of an interest in school type work. I couldn’t sing the ABC song nor get him to attempt to sound out words. He has never really had much of an interest in trying to learn school type concepts, that is until this year in Kindergarten. I am friends with Aj’s teacher on Facebook and […]

Just Because They Do It, Doesn’t Mean You Can

Now I am not one to stomp on another parents right to allow their child to do whatever that parent deems fit. A parental choice for a child of another person is not my business, but I must say I am concerned about a few things: The number of elementary children having to babysit their younger sibling(s). The number of elementary children walking from school to an empty home. The number of elementary aged children on Facebook. I do not recall how old I was when I started walking the streets of the town I grew up in, but I […]
