Ireland Unit: Dublin Castle Model One of the things I like to do with our unit studies is make a model or diorama of a major landmark or place. In 2015 I visited Ireland and loved Dublin castle, and thought it would make a fun project for my oldest and I. First, we gathered some parts - I used a oatmeal container for the tower and a milk carton for the main part.

St. Patrick's Day Themed Sensory Bin My girls LOVE sensory play. Every time I make a sensory bin, my kiddos go nuts for a long time feeling, sorting, arranging, etc. Most of the sensory bins I make are geared for my oldest because my youngest likes to put most everything in her mouth and so I have to watch her closely, which defeats the purpose I made it for.

The Big Easy Our second major detour en route from Colorado to Florida was New Orleans. Even weeks after Mardi Gras, beads were still visible in the trees and tourists were inebriated before noon. But we focused our afternoon's stroll on the beauty of the buildings in the French Quarter, eating beignets, and checking out the waterfront.

Being Healthy As a Stay at Home Mom When most people think of stay at home moms, they usually imagine someone who is always home cooking and cleaning and changing diapers.

Week 31 I can tell it's Spring around here. This is usually the time each year when outings ramp up and structured lessons begin to wrap up.
