Summer Time Learning – Avoid the Summer Slide! Free Infographic, too.

July 10, 2017

As summer approached, I struggled to find a balance between summer time fun and summer time learning.  I wanted my 3 little girls to enjoy their summer break, but wanted to ensure that we, as parents, did not allow our children to fall into the ‘the summer slide’ or ‘summer learning loss.’  According to Little Scholars, “learning loss is inevitable when kids take the summer off from educational activities” with students losing as much as 15% of their educational ability if they don’t read, write or practice math and possibly up to three months of academic progress over the summer.

So, just like me, you may be wondering…what can I do to make sure my child(ren) do not “slide” academically over the summer months?  Well, our friends of F.C. Kerbeck Buick GMC provided an amazing infographic with tips for summer educational fun!

Goldfish Swim - Family Swim

As you probably know from my recent posts, my girls have been taking group swim lessons at Goldfish Swim in Mt. Laurel. Just to reiterate, they still love it (lol). This past Easter weekend, my nieces traveled from Connecticut to visit us. So in addition to our 3 girls, we had to find a way to host 4 more little girls – what a blessing! I had to put on my mommy hat and figure out an affordable way for all 7 girls to have fun. Thanks to Goldfish Swim, it was a breeze and affordable too.

Mommy + Me Plus a Freebie!

April 26, 2016
Mommy + Me

I love gifts…who doesn’t?  However, over the last few years, I’ve been less of a “gift” person and love to focus more on creating and enjoying the experiences.  To see the smiles on the faces that I love, gives me complete joy and that is my gift.  Needless to say, I honestly do not want an actual physical gift for Mother’s Day.  It will mean more to me to actually do something unique and exciting rather than the typical going out to eat, opening up a gift, blah, blah, blah…boring (to me at least)!
