Iowa History Bus

The Iowa History Bus was in my town this holiday weekend!  It was free so of course, we went in and learned a few things about our state.  The kids now have a better understanding of the farming state we live in.   It was about 75% farming and now down to about 35% farmers.  The kids saw some old roller skates, records, rotary phone, and so much more.  

Congratulations Graduate!

How can both of my nephews be graduated?   My miracle nephew Devin graduated high school this week.   This little one pound 13 ounce boy has made me proud!  I am praying you enjoy this next chapter in your life!  Love you Devin!

My Review:
Thanks for sending me these dog treats for free in exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% my own. 

These lamb treats are grain free and my dog seems to really love them.  They are about quarter size but thicker and my dog gobbles them up in just a couple bites!  Kiah was given a choice to pick between these treats and some dog bacon treat and all 4 times she went back to these treats!  Which surprised me a lot because the other treat was much bigger and the aroma fo the bacon treat was much bigger which made me think she would go for that one but she kept going back for a good quality treat with the oven baked snack!  

They are currently on sale so go and order!  Only $2.99!

My Review:
Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.  
Ok, let's talk about the handle right away because my kids love it!  I think all kids are going to love carrying this Bible all over the place because it has this awesome little handle!  It is easy to bring it anywhere with the handle!   I know my kids will enjoy passing it on to younger one once we are complete with it.  As for as the stories go, they are very similar to all the Beginner Bibles.   The pictures are bright and capture your attention immediately when you turn the pages.  This book is a hardcover book but the pages are normal pages and not a full board book.  This book is available for $12.99 on Zondervan.
