My Snapshot(s)


The past few weeks we've been reading through a really great book (Child's Introduction to Art) and of course one section covered Michelangelo, so when I walked through the kitchen and saw this going on, I knew immediately what Gv was up to.

She even thought about the fact that paint might drip on her face, so she used our little marker-and-water paint trick (you know, where you color something with marker and then paint water over it to make it bleed?) to keep things dry.

I've seen the Sistine Chapel in real life and it's amazing, but let me tell you, this little masterpiece was way cuter!

At last week's party, we shared our favorite ways to keep the marriage spark alive.

This week brings us International Museum Day, so we're sharing our favorite museums around the world.

I love visiting museums, so this list is pretty difficult to whittle down to just five. There are many more that could make this list, but here are the first five that come to my mind when I think of museums that I love:

I don't know about you, but in our world, photo gifts never get old. We've given out projects like this and this for Christmas in the past and I came up with an idea for Father's Day that would take care of that holiday's present for years and years!

Do you remember my "Top Learning Tools" series? Well, even though I'd shared my posts on the alphabetreading, and math, I'd had one planned out for general learning sites that I completely forgot to post!

It all worked out, however, because several of you have been asking me recently about which websites I think are best for overall learning. 

Here are five of my favorites -- helpful for letting your little ones loose on in the summer during those times when you just need a little break or even great for the school year, too.

These sites range from lighter to more serious material, but they're all Gv-tested and the ones that she wants to spend her screen time on the most.

Creamy Zucchini Casserole

Around here, summer squashes are popping up everywhere! Try using some in this dish that can be used as a side or even for the main dinner event!

If you grow zucchini in your garden, you're going to have more of the stuff than you probably know what to do with, so make life easy on yourself one night and throw together this easy dish that can serve as a side, or be the main event!

Susie Homemaker, hard at work!

Gv's been able to independently make her own PB&Js for a while now, which has been a huge help, but now she's added another food prep to her list: guacamole!

G and I are especially excited because this is the first thing she can make, from start to finish, all by herself that we also enjoy eating! 

Next up, lasagna. Cook our dinner, Gv! Chop, chop! (Just kidding! Kind of...)
