  • Poetry and Preschoolers

    Poetry isn’t necessarily something that interests everyone. Some people like it and some people don’t. What you might not know is that, more often than not, preschoolers are drawn to poetry!

Preschoolers are “born poets.” Poetry is all about using your imagination {which we all know preschoolers have an abundance of}

  • Bored with Board Books?

    It is no secret that you or your little ones can be bored with board books (pun intended). Of course the classics like Goodnight Moon, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt are classics for a reason. Kids love them and they are well written books! But you can only read them so many times…at least that’s the case for me! I love when books are entertaining for the adult …

  • Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

    I believe there is no place like home and consider myself a homebody, but I absolutely love traveling! I have been very blessed to go on a few mission trips with my church and have always had a “fun” travel day at the end. Last summer was Wales {so much hard work-not qualified for a wood-chipper ha} and we were able to spend 2 days in Dublin at the end. Such a fun city and I would love to go back! …
