The Solar Eclipse – A Teachable Moment

If there is anything that I have learned since becoming a parent, it is that every moment is teachable.  And believe it or not on this journey, I am sure that I have learned just as much if not more than they have.  Simply because children are inquisitive and they very rarely accept that you do not have the answers.  And, if in fact you don’t, they expect you to find out.  I am almost convinced that kids are the one that coined the “I’ll Wait” movement.  So in teaching them, I find myself fascinated by things that never even remotely peeked my interest before, such as the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse.  Fueled by the fact that both the School Board and the Internet are making a big deal about it, it has become an ongoing conversation in my home lately. I love watching how my children soak up knowledge and then are able to just spew it back out to you at a later time. may they always be like little sponges.

After discussing the Solar Eclipse with your little ones.  Here is a fun Solar Eclipse Word Search that you can do together or separately.  You can always make it fun, by giving the person who finds the most words a special treat or privilege. In addition to it being a teachable moment, you have now created a fun memory that they won’t soon forget.

The 2017 – 2017 School Year has officially begun here in Atlanta!!  As a child, I always loved the back to school season, the smell of new clothes and new school supplies!!  I am sure that shocks no one, since I am still all about new clothes, new pens, notebooks, etc. etc.  Back in my day… we used to actually carry physical books and bought all different kinds of cool book covers and decorated them to our liking.  But, these days pretty much all of the books are available online.  So, my daughter and I simply dress up her three ring binders.  We love doing this every year, it’s kind of our thing.

This is the third year that we have shared our Binder Covers here on the blog.  To grab these simply right click on the links below.

Get Ready for Back to School with these Free Personalized Binder Covers

Back to School Binder Cover Blog

As always, summers around here don’t seem to last.  There are literally just 16 days left until the start of school here in Atlanta.  So, I am in full Back to School Planning Mode, much to the chagrin of my little ones who are still very much in “lounge mode”. Most of our School Supplies have been purchased, and the only major thing we still have to do is clothes shopping.  I don’t know how it is at your house, but for me, my Middle School-er is the hardest shop for.  She after all, has strong opinions on her look and fashion in general.  Who knew??  I thought I had a few more years, lol.

Last year, I made a Binder Cover for her and somehow I ended up having to make one for most of the girls in her class.  We had to have the whole discussion about volunteering Mommy’s services.  But, they were such a big hit, that I added a few to the blog right before School started last year and they, to this day are one of most downloaded and shared items.

And, you know I am all about a freebie.  So this year, I gave you a few more options.  Five Funky & Fancy Binder Covers for you to choose from and Personalize for your little ones.  To Download – Right Click on the Picture – Save.  You can choose to hand write their names and grades or if you choose to edit it via the computer.  You will be able to open this document in pretty much any program, since I made it a JPEG image.  If you like these and decide to download and use please share your pics on Instagram with the hashtag #spbacktoschool.

Spring is Here + 3 Spring Prints

Spring is Here!!  And, I for one am super excited.  We had a pretty mild winter, but I am still ready for warmer weather, tulips, walks on the trail and just the all around joyous feeling that comes with the change of the season.  Once the Spring Cleaning is done and the Winter Clothes put away, next on my agenda is always decorating.  I am not sure how much of that I will get to this year.  But, at the very least, I thought that I would put up some Spring/Easter Printables.  I went a little crazy creating these.  So i thought that I would share them with you.  I hope this makes up for the lack of a Freebie Friday Post.  Print and Enjoy (Right Click on the Print Name Below Each Print- Download and Save!!)

hooray for spring prints!!
