Celebrating Dr. Seuss’ Birthday with Cat in the Hat Breakfast and Oobleck

My kids love "Green Eggs and Ham," "The Cat in the Hat," "There's a Wocket in my Pocket," and "Fox in Socks," just to name a few. Every … [Read more...]

Red White & Blue Glitter Slime

I think July is my favorite month. It's the one month my kids are all home from school for the entire month and our family probably spends the most time together just relaxing and enjoying each other's company. The kids asked to make some glitter slime, and we thought we'd get a little patriotic while we were at it. We love to make slime and make it often, so we had everything we needed … [Read more...]

Sawyer has missed more school this month than we normally have from all three kids all year long. I knew Sawyer … [Read more...]
