Weekday evenings are the busiest time of day for my family. We have to do school/babysitter pickup, dinner, homework, and our bedtime routine – times 4 – all in just over 2 hours. It can be difficult to make evenings enjoyable and not just a rush to get everything done. I am always looking for creative ways to make ordinary moments extraordinary, and this week Goldfish crackers helped make that happen!
There are many reasons why my kids and I set a “resolution” (we prefer to think of them as goals) of writing letters to their friends & family. Many of our friends live 3 thousand miles away in NY and with the time difference and our busy schedules, we do not call as much as we should – plus the kids LOVE getting mail! When I heard about the Post Pal Club, I knew that would be a super fun way to kick off implementation of our goal!
My oldest is a bright kid, but math has never been her strong suit. We have struggled for years with trying to help her catch up at home. We were thrilled to discover the Mathnasium – a center that not only focuses on Math, but does so in a way that is fun and customized to the child.
