This is a really simple busy bag to make and the kids love it! All you need is a clothespin, a small piece of green felt, and some pipe cleaners. The green felt is your grass, the pipe cleaners are your worms, and the clothespin is your bird. The kids use the bird to collect all of the worms. You can even use this to practice color recognition and simple counting by asking your child to pick up 2 blue worms and 1 red worm. read more »
My son has a crazy dad. But its that craziness that creates a balance. When I say something is too high, my husband says its not high enough, and encourages our son to go higher, faster, longer, wilder. The result is a happy, fun, engaged little boy. I remember when Miles was born, his doctor [...] read more »

Last summer, we spent many Saturday mornings driving around and checking out yard sales. We found some really great stuff but the best find by far was an inflatable bowling set which we payed $2 for.
We have used this bowling set a lot, and for a lot of different purposes. We have used it for bowling of course.
And for "Davis Bowling"...
And most recently, we used the set for an indoor baseball game.
This set is perfect for indoor use since it's inflatable so it won't hurt if you get hit with it a... read more »

In April, I wrote about our gardening project and I realized that I haven't updated since then. Oops! Here's the state of our garden now...

The beans didn't start sprouting until after we transplanted the others so we still have them in their original containers but they will need to be transplanted soon. The sunflowers, sadly didn't sprout a... read more »
