Tonight, the boys and I got to preview BLEU! from Compagnia TPO, an Italian theatre group that specializes in “interactive theatre in immersive environments”.  I have to admit, I was excited to learn about the show having dance and music in a format that sparks children’s interest and creativity, but I was anxious that my children would not actually be able to sit all the way through it.  Especially with tonight’s performance beginning an...

We were provided a sample to facilitate this review, however all opinions are our own. It’s no surprise that my kiddo is big into science.  He will be attending a STEM magnet Elementary school next year, and we are so excited!  We plan on doing lots of experiments and fun things this summer to get him really excited for school.  I feel that it is incredibly important for young boys, and especially girls to start in the pre-K stage with activities like this...

I received a discount on rental fee for this feature, however, all opinions are my own!   Growing up, my mother, Aunt, and cousins took spontaneous trips on occasion to various places.  Gatlinburg, TN was always one of our favorites.  We would arrive, try to find a cheap hotel, and see the sights.  My cousins and I would get to wander around the strip when we were a bit older.  We’d do all the crazy bungee rides, Old Time Photos, buy some fudge,...

We have a Walt Disney World trip planned for this Fall. I am SO flipping excited about it. We have hinted to the boys but not told them yet that we are going.  I am certain my husband and our 7 year old will love the famous Disney Dole whip.  They are both big fans of pineapple and who can resist a cold treat in the Florida heat? It’s going to be a few months before we go so while waiting for our trip they will have to be satisfied with Dole Whip Cupcakes. I don’t...

  As an adoptive Mom I am the beneficiary of two beautiful gifts that came via addiction.  The Birth Mothers of both of my sons struggled with addiction. One was addicted to drugs and the other to drugs and alcohol.  Addiction is such a scary thing in the life of the addict and those around them. While I am thankful for my sons I am saddened by the circumstances of their births.    I recently learned of a drug rehab center that uses music to facilitate...

We recently got the chance to enjoy the exciting Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Presents Legends. The girls were beyond excited for their first trip to the circus.     Ringling Bros. offers an all access pre-show one hour before the start of the show. This is a great time to go down to the stage an interact with the performers. They also had a variety of clowns and stage actors performing lots of different acts. Susie got her picture taken with...

While we were provided sample copies to review the opinions expressed are our own. Susie is homeschooled, as I have said before and we have recently been focusing on biology. More specifically we have been exploring the animal kingdom, and how the different animals are classified and interact in their environments. I was recently given the opportunity to review some new and exciting science based dvds from NCircle Entertainment. Sid the Science Kid Encyclopedia of Discovery –...
