Cancer on the Brain by Jay Lefevers Review

I don't know what it is but if someone offers me a book about cancer I have to read it.  Now I really hope I don't sound gross when I said I had to read it.  I just relate to people because of my mother's story.  Let's get honest everyone knows someone close to them who has, had, or passed away from CANCER!  Thanks to the Greenleaf Book Group who gave me copy of the book "Cancer on the Brain" to conduct my review.  


When I read the title I was reminded of my High School friend who is winning is battle with Leukemia.  He wrote an online journal and a book which I have read.  He always made statements about how "cancer is always on your mind."  So I was unsure if this story would relate to dealing with the emotional toll of Cancer or if this man's battle was cancer on the brain.  I know most people would pick cancer is on the brain.  


Indeed Jay did have a cancerous tumor on his brain! On top of battling all that comes with cancer Jay coaches baseball and heads up a successful company!  This story is encouraging to many and is a quick read due to the authors humor!  :)  When I expected to read a story that would bring many tears back just reliving my personal story I actually found myself laughing instead.  Beyond the humor inside the story Jay does a great job of being real and gentle but most importantly INSPIRING!  I will admit that anyone who gets cancer, fights cancer, and lives to tell there story has received a gift.  A gift of a new life because life is never taken advantage of after going through surgeries, chemo, radiation, and the many drugs.  This is a good read for anyone!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
