I Dream Of Faraway Places #madetoholiday #thesearethedays #makingmemories

I don’t spend hours on Pinterest like I did in the beginning. Part of that is I have gotten busier and therefore made less time for it, and part of it is shifting my focus from PINNING, to DOING. My pinterest is filled with Cute Kids Stuff, Food I Love, Inspiration, Things That Make Me Laugh, and more…so much more. I love looking through each album to get new ideas or remember something that has helped me….but the one that…

While I Organize…

While I was organizing the kids schoolwork so it was all ready when I put their next Blurb books together, Jonah had some sticker fun! Miraculously, they all made it to the paper. Well, except for the ones that didn’t, of course ūüėČ He actually made a storyline on paper and had me watch while he lined each piece up. Then asked me take a photo of him in front of each party of the story. Strangely, he never shared…

A Craft With My Kiddos #makingmemories

I really love finding crafts the kids can do. It helps keep the tv off and gives them the opportunity to really tap into their creativity and try something new. As an added bonus, some even involve little science lessons which can also be fun. I had some of these plastic bears leftover from nearly 15 years ago {sometimes keeping things comes in handy lol} and was so excited when we came across them. I got Jonah settled in at…

I Dropped The Ball {And I’m Proud Of It}

Jonah is absolutely SMITTEN with Kindergarten. He loves everything about it and comes home each school day exclaiming that it was SUPER fun! One of his favorite things so far has been his *special day* – a day close to his birthday where he gets to be the leader and helper all day, plus got to have his mommy there {yipee}, and bring a special treat to share with his class {I made cake pops – his request}. A couple…

A Date With My Boy {Eep…my FIVE year old!} #makingmemories

September was a bit of a crazy month, as you may remember. And between school starting, watching other kids, the regular busy-ness, and starting work I know Jonah has been starting to feel a little bit *tossed around*. From one place to the next, without much down time…so when I finally had a day off without ANYTHING else going on, I set a date for him and I. He was pretty excited for a jelly filled doughnut so off to…

Making Memories EVERY Day {#Free #Activitiesforkids}

One thing I’ve really started focusing on is putting the effort in to making memories. Making the conscious effort to create them EVERY day. It doesn’t have to be big things all the time like Disneyland or Beach Vacations, though those are obviously wonderful, but little things in the every day and making the time to BE together – enjoying and learning together. I mean, we’ve always made memories and spent time together, and LOVED it. But it’s been a…

A *Pinterest* Date A Day {Day Seven}

I had to pin this activity myself so it would qualify for this particular feature. lol So, it is now on my Pinterest, but I actually found this fantastic idea from Domestic Charm – who originally found it from Smashed Peas and Carrots {which have both easily been added to my favorites list}. I was on my way to pick my daughter up from school but was determined to try this as soon as we got¬† home. I am so…

A *Pinterest* Date A Day {Day Six}

Wow – life sure gets busy! But even though we’ve had lots going on, making it difficult to squeeze in our *pinterest* date, it doesn’t mean we haven’t spent time together. We’ve gone for bike rides, walks, played at the playground, cuddled, roasted marshmallows on the campfire, had a bbq with family, and more. We have had FUN! But, as promised – to myself and you – I couldn’t wait to get back to doing these fun ideas from Pinterest.…
