  • 11 Summer Reading Programs for Kids!
    Tweet Summer is a great time to catch up on reading and also build a love for reading for those who feel pressured to read for school purposes.

  • Kids Bowl Free All Summer Long!!!
    Tweet This will be the 5th year that I will be signing up for the “Kids Bowl Free” program. I know you think summer and think: OUTDOORS right. Well true but you can’t be there all day long. Sometimes it gets hot. Sometimes mosquitos try to join you. Sometimes the kids are pooped. Sometimes you are! Sometimes you want the airconditioning. Sometimes you want a cheap...
