Goodness. This year has been a doozy.
I know I'm not the only parent feeling emotionally drained from all of the "news" that is constantly pushed in front me. There are so many opinions on what should be happening with schools and with our kids, but for us the answer wasn't easy to come by but it was obvious. Homeschool.

Homeschool Online Science Labs

This post is sponsored by Greg Landry of College Prep Science. Thoughts and opinions shared here reflect those of my own.
With all the uncertainty surrounding children returning to school this year, many families are turning to homeschooling as
their best option. Just like so many other parents you might be searching for homeschooling resources and curriculum to
help your child succeed. The task of homeschooling can be daunting to some parents. Many families look for
homeschooling experts to outsource certain subjects and for science and biology they turn to Greg Landry.
Greg Landry's College Prep Science has been helping virtual schooling students gain the lab credits needed to move on
to college with the confidence and knowledge needed for success.

Science labs have always been a challenge for homeschooling families: supplies, specimens, equipment, writing
lab reports, knowing how to perform labs, smelly frogs on the kitchen table, etc. Some families attempt to remedy
those issues by getting together with other families and doing labs together - pooling resources or doing science labs in
a homeschool co-op setting. But, that too is sometimes problematic and often doesn't end well. The newest challenge is
not being able to do labs with other families or in a homeschool co-op setting because of COVID-19.

Our preschooler loves watching her favorite pals on Nickelodeon. Even while staying safe at home this summer she's been running around our house with blazing speed. I don't think this kid ever slows down, except maybe to catch an episode of one of her favorite shows like Blaze and the Monster Machines or Shimmer and Shine. She loves the fast-paced action of Blaze and his crew as they learn so many things and she's drawn into the colorful genie world with Shimmer and Shine. Whichever pals your preschooler is in love with they have new releases to enjoy this summer! Check them out below and enter for a chance to win a copy of each.

Baby Banana Teethers Are A-Peeling To Toddlers!

I received the products mentioned below in exchange for this review. All views and opinions reflect those of my own. 

Toddlerhood is a wild ride. Right when C had gotten through her recent sleep regression and nap-fighting, we find ourselves diving right back into TEETHING. Poor girl was really showing signs of being uncomfortable, and even at nearly 2, she was back to putting EVERYTHING in her mouth. And sometimes, perhaps even most times, those things were not safe. Baby Banana came to the rescue YET again.
