Sponsored post written by me for Pentel. All opinions are my own. I absolutely love pens. There is something about using a colorful pen makes writing that much more fun. Don’t ask my husband how large my pen collection looks, because he will start laughing, but I am obsessed! What’s not to love? I change ink color depending on my mood, and it gives me the pop of color that I need to brighten my day. Just think a list of things to do in black ink is boring, but that pop of hot pink stands out from all that black, and it tells me I need to do it … READ MORE
Product Testing/Review. All opinions are my own. My son is entering middle school next year while his younger brother attends elementary school. They will be on different schedules, and I might start subbing next year. We still have a couple of months of summer to figure out commuting whether it be bussing or carpooling, etc. I would love some tips if you’d like to share them with me. I have considered letting him to walk to school and back, but I am not 100% convinced neither I nor he is ready for it. I have thought about ordering him a bus (since it is not provided for free where we … READ MORE
The month of May is Ride Your Bike Month. There are so many benefits to riding your bike to work or school. It saves money on gas, and it is also eco-friendly. Some people ride for exercise, and it becomes their way of life. I see my neighbor fine-tuning his bike almost every day, and he rides every morning before work. He is in his fifties, and he looks fit! The children in the neighborhood are starting to ride their bikes again which reminds me we need to check the condition of our bikes again. Honestly, I don’t think my family do enough outdoors. We all have bikes and should be … READ MORE
Sponsored post written by me for ScholarShare 529. With the rising costs of college and higher education, my husband and I are always looking for ways to save for college for our kids. It is coming up quickly because in less than ten years, our oldest will be faced with hefty tuition that will require not only our help but financial aid. His brother will follow shortly after. We really don’t know how we are going to pay for it all, but we don’t want cost to be a factor if they want to go to college to pursue their dream careers. We have already signed up for 529 tax-free savings … READ MORE
It has been about two months since we tried Mathnasium – The Math Learning Center in Laguna Niguel. My son who has special needs is in Gen Ed this year for 5th Grade and although I know he may or may never catch up, Math is his strength. What is holding him back is reading and comprehension so he struggles with word problems. It is hard for me to gauge how he is doing and where he needs to be, but as long as he is learning that is all that matters to me. I wanted to try Mathnasium to see if they can help close some of those learning … READ MORE
One of my boys struggle with reading and comprehension in general which makes it difficult for him to solve math word problems. He has an IEP, and I love his teachers this year, but there is only so much they can do in the classroom. I have partnered up with MATHNASIUM in Laguna Niguel for two months to see if they can help close some of the gaps. What I have seen so far has been impressive. As a learning center, their objectives are to uncover and address the gaps in the student’s knowledge. They hope to build self-confidence and self-esteem in the children. They want to teach it in a way that will make sense for them, and they want to help the children strengthen their math skills. The groups are kept small and the children are rewarded for their efforts. If they accumulate enough points, they spin a wheel at the end of the session for bonus points which are redeemable for prizes. My son looks forward to going back bi-weekly.
