While we stood there waiting a while it ended up the ride was having technical difficulties. Okay well, we will go somewhere and then come…Continue

My son is 4 almost 5 and this is his first time in a "school" environment. Only 3 months in and they are wanting to switch his teachers in Pre-K. I'm concerned that the teacher is "giving up" on my son. He does have "antsy" pants and he has the selective hearing. He's gone through the normal behaviour issues of all boys and that's cleared up, however, the teacher is frustrated. I've put him on "calm child", however, that made his hyperness worse. So I've cut out sugar, candy and even…Continue
Tis the season! It's almost time, or past time for some, to deck the halls, trim the tree and hang those thousands of lights. We love Christmas here and I do say I love the decorating and the more lights the better :).
When do you hang your lights and put up the tree? Is it done already or do you wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving? For us that weekend right after Thankgsiving we are working on the Christmas decorations. I love it and my son does too. My hubby, eehhh..…Continue
