Making Friends After A Big Move



Well, it has been 10 months since we moved out of Wisconsin into Iowa!   10 months that has gone extremely fast!   My kids have both made some new friends and my daughter loves her new school.   

Moving can be frightening for kids so here are some easy to do steps:

1. Make sure you only speak about the move with excitement and keep it positive!  (hopefully this is naturally the case)

2.  Tell them as soon as you know so they have time to adjust to the idea. 

3.  Let them be involved with the entire process-looking for a place to live- timeline for move- packing up!   

4. Plan a time/date/party for your kids to say good bye to friends.   Exchange information to stay in touch. 

5. Once you arrive have fun exploring your new area!   Take one day a week to go and find a new adventure- be a tourist in your new hometown and surrounding areas.  

6.  Visit and tour the school as soon as possible.

7.  PRAY through it all!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
