..."popsicles on the porch"...what a great afternoon treat and our favorite way to spend time together! These are simple and precious moments! Princess #1 and Princess #2 along with Little Man #1 and #2 are my inspiration for most of these writings.

Cool Educational Links!

For all you moms looking for some fun educational sites you've got to check out the links below! Some new friends shared these great links and I thought I'd pass them along.

The link to the handwriting worksheet even allows you to customize your own handwriting worksheets! You can type in your child's name - phrase - or short sentence and the program automatically creates a full sized practice worksheet! Isabella's been enjoying this one as she practices writing her name.

In addition, there are also some creative ideas for fun crafts you can incorporate into learning lessons, customizable chore charts and many more helful tools for parents!

Be sure to check out the following links:

Oh, you have to try Starfall.com! Monique told me about it and it's so great! Evy LOVES it! All reading readiness stuff and it teaches them the sounds the letters make. It's wonderful!

One of my favorite when I was teaching and now as a mommy is Jan Brett's site... Tons of activities, interactive stuff, fun coloring sheets, flashcards, etc... I LOVE her site... I guess this would go in your authors list, that is if you like it as well! Thanks for the new links...
