I Finally Took the Leap

I did a thing.

An awesome and exciting thing.

I have finally made the jump into selling Usborne books!

Our shelves have been slowly filling up with them and we are constantly checking them out from the library. We absolutely adore these books. Both the kids and I have found ourselves diving into them and loving all of the wonderful things that we have learned. Every book we have read has been so well done and prompted much laughter, many questions and discussions.

Laughing Kid Reading

As my kids are getting older and starting to read themselves I knew that our home library needed to expand so they could freely explore various topics without daily trips to the library. We will always go to the library but there is something about going to your own shelves and finding love.

I want our kids to be able to devour their favorite books until the bindings can no longer stay together. I want my son to carry his books down by the river without me worrying about library fees. I want books to be a part of their life. Their everyday life.

You know, the life that includes curling up with a blanket and chocolate chip cookies with your favorite book. Mountains of pillows and piles of books that almost seem to reach the ceiling. A semi disaster in a mom’s perspective but magical as a kid. This is the life I want for my kids.

I would give my kids the world if I could. I can’t so instead I will give them books that will transport them around the world and through time. Books that will stretch their imaginations and expand their knowledge. I can’t answer every question my little’s have however I can teach them how to find the answers they seek and where to look.

Usborne is already a part of our life and I can’t wait to bring it to the homes of many wonderful families. Follow along with us here for deals and discounts! I have extra special deals for those that host an online party in the next two week. Double Points!!! Yeah, more books for you, from me.

Desert Habitat Unit Workboxes for your Three Year Old

Desert Workbox 3 yr old

The world is kind of a funny place. An amazing place that I am blessed by everyday but its still kinda funny. Some places around the world are crazy hot, some freezing cold and other places bounce around in temperature.  In all of the various locations you will find different habitats and within those their own animals and separate ecosystems.

We love animals so while I was planning our home school preschool edition I thought it would be perfect to learn about different animals and their habitats. Every other month I have chosen a new habitat to learn about, starting with the desert.

I already know that Bee will love this unit.

Check out our bins for this week!

Our Pre School Product Choices

They came. They finally came.

Two beautiful brown boxes of supplies to help us reach our educational goals.

Every year as I prepare for Christmas I write a list and start a amazon cart of some items I want to order for gifts. I like to brainstorm and then re-evaluate my plans a few weeks later.  It helps me to make sure that I have made the correct choices for everyone that I am buying for.

I used the same strategy but instead I had a cart growing of supplies I was interested in for school. It was filled with all types of goodies for all three of my kiddos but mostly for my almost four year old.
