Bottle Cap Games for Kindergarten Readiness

As a mom of a preschooler, I am always looking for ways to user everyday objects to enhance her learning. Since I work at the library, Natalie is always surrounded by books and reading. She is working on learning sight words and I love encouraging her. Using bottle caps allows us to also explore topics of reusing and recycling within our learning. If you’re anything like us, you end up with lots of bottle caps. Read on for some great ideas to use bottle cap games for kindergarten readiness.

Goodbye, Mom

Goodbye, Mom

How do you even begin to say goodbye to your mother? It feels too soon; she was just 51. But then, no amount of time together would have been enough. It has been one week and I still feel like I can’t take a full breath. How is it possible that I am in a world where my mother is not? My heart is aching so deeply and the pain is indescribable. My mother’s memorial service is later today, and I’m not sure how I’ll get through it.

Goodbye, Mom. Rest easy.

In Loving Memory of Kim Marie Swiger

A poem from Henry Scott Holland:

Death is nothing at all. It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next …

In January of 2011, I realized my period was late. We were not trying to get pregnant and I was not expecting the pregnancy test to be positive. I took the test and I was completely in shock to see a positive result. With those …

To the Girl Marrying My Little Brother

To the Girl Marrying My Little Brother

You are one of the luckiest girls in the world.

You see, you aren’t just marrying the love of your life. You are marrying one of the most amazing guys out there. My brother is so many wonderful things. He is the type of man that other men should strive to be. He’s a typical guy in a lot of ways, but so incredibly different in others. He is hard-working and loyal. He is kind and considerate. He is funny and sweet.

As wonderful as he is, and as much as you love each other, I know that it won’t always be perfect. There will be times he frustrates you or makes you cry. He can be annoying – he’s my …
