Review: Disney Hilton Head Island Resort

Recently, we spent our family vacation at the Disney Hilton Head Island Resort in South Carolina. It seems to be a well-kept secret, but it quickly became one of our favorite Disney Resorts.  We had used this resort as a stopping point to rest on long drives down the east coast, but we had…

First Time Tent Camping

I hope that something I say will help you to give you permission to relax and enjoy the toddler years.  I wish that I had been a little easier on myself while thinking about the homeschooling process.  My son is four years old, and I have spent more time worrying about all of the &#8220…

Slow Down, You’re Growing Up Too Fast

Window Cling Letters

I found these window cling letters at the Dollar Store.  I used it this morning with Joshua to see if he could put them in order.  With a little guidance and a lot of singing the ABCs song, he was able to do it. I will be looking for more things like this…
