Pete the Cat Hot Dots Review
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Well summer is almost done and my kids will soon be in school. Selah a 2nd grader and Titus a preschooler! I am so excited for them for the new year... we are expecting great things this year!
Titus was very excited to get this Pete the Cat Hot Dots set! We have other Hot Dots sets so this new one made him very excited! There are so many different activities that hit every educational area! The Set has two different work books that allowed my son a lot of fun. He loved the stickers he earned that was a part of the set. He is also anxious and excited to earn the certificate that came with the set.
When I sat down with my son it was so fun to see him thinking! It was as if I saw his confidence grow while playing! I recommend getting a Hot Dots set and having some fun with your child!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
