7 Ways to Get Your Teen to Read More This Summer

Reading is important any time of year but especially during the summer to avoid the dreaded “summer slide.” The “summer slide” refers to children losing skills they learn during the school year because they aren’t using them in the summer. Reading during the summer months can help make sure your teen isn’t falling behind when school starts up again.

Bottle Cap Games for Kindergarten Readiness

Maintaining my blog is a creative outlet, but it is also another way for me to make money or receive products or services that benefit them. I started my virtual assistant business because I want to …

It is so inspiring to watch incredibly talented athletes from all over the world come together to compete. Side Note: I cry during the Olympic Games – a lot. It is amazing to watch the triumphs and (sometimes, failures) of the world’s most talented athletes. My favorite events are gymnastics, swimming and track & field.

Now, just a few years ago, I may not have included track & field among my favorites. But ever since my older …
