My recommendations this week:
You know you’re on to something good when you like “kids’ music” as much as the kids do! Elizabeth Mitchell has always been one of our favorite artists and we have many of her albums.
Her songs are calm, soothing, & remind me of how happy I am to be alive.
I discovered these marbles when researching games Laura Ingalls might have played in the 1800s (before we left on our Little House trip). We wanted to have some era-appropriate gifts on hand for those who hosted us.
Side benefit is that my kiddos have spent happy hours playing with them, too. (And I just really love the box!)
Looking for a resource to help your kiddos keep up with spelling, phonics, and vocab over the summer?
I bought a couple of these Daily Word Ladder books recently and find the format really fun! (So I may do them myself even if the kids don’t. =)
