I have been teaching swim lessons since I was 17 years old. No one needed to tell me the importance of learning how to swim and what an impact it can have in a child’s life. However, having a child changes how you view everything.
These easy homemade Halloween Handprint Wreaths make the perfect gift for grandparents and parents. I grew up making crafts in my Grandma's basement. There she taught me how to sew, knit, crochet, and just how to make all sorts of different arts and crafts. Every weekend it was something new. Every time Anthony and I do an arts and crafts project together, it reminds me of the special time I got to spend with my grandma. The one-on-one bonding time, letting our creative sides flow, and just creating all sorts of different projects.
One of my favorite things to do on a Sunday is spend time with my family. Lately we have been enjoying the latest craze in mobile phone gaming; Pokemon Go.
When I had my son everyone, including our pediatrician, warned me about the witching hour. That glorious time of day where your newborn is fussy and it is nearly impossible to console, let alone get anything done because you are wearing holes in the hallway or doing squats while singing. Really, doing whatever it takes to keep your baby from crying, counting the minutes until your husband gets home and takes over while you cook dinner. As the witching hour phase passed we entered a new phase, the phase no one warned me about! For me, it was a much less enjoyable stage - the one where my husband and I were both back to work… and someone still had to make dinner.
When I was a preschool teacher some of the best activities were during Spring time. With the changing of the weather the kids were able to spend more time outside which we took full advantage of. Not only were they able to run around to get rid of lots of energy, but things were also changing all around them. Flowers start to bloom and grass starts to grow. Bugs appear from hiding and birds are out and about building their nests. You can feel the sunshine on your skin and the breeze on your face and everywhere you look, the colors are becoming more vibrant and things are starting to become alive. Just being outside provides so many teaching opportunities to take advantage of.
