Marble Mania From The Learning Journey Review & Giveaway Ends 5/13/14!   I loved playing with marbles when I was a child. I remember trying to set up different marble mazes and building contraptions for my marbles to go through. Recently thanks to The Learning Journey I was sent a fun Techno Gears Marble Mania Quest for the purpose of this review. The Marble Mania Quest arrived at the perfect time....spring break. It was day 3 of spring break and my home was filled with children who thought that they were board.

I handed him the box immediately and told him to have fun putting it together. As soon as he opened the box the kids screamed with joy and ran over to help him.

Turkey Taco Bites

TacoBites2done

Turkey Taco Bites   I have been focusing on eating healthy this year. Basically if it is not healthy then I don't want to put it into my body. This has actually been a lot easier then I anticipated. I cleaned out all the cupboards and freezers of all the junk and I make sure that I am not hungry when I go grocery shopping..that helps me stick to my list better. :) One of the ways I have been focusing on eating healthy is by cutting down on the amount of red meat that my family eats. We have been trying out new recipes that contain fish, chicken and turkey.   Ingredients for Turkey Taco Bites -   1 lb. ground turkey 1 packet of taco seasoning (any brand) ½ C. shredded cheese 3-4 romaine leaves, ripped to fit the tortilla chips ½ C. diced tomatoes Sour Cream (optional) Taco Sauce (optional) 1 bag of regular size tortilla chips   Directions -   #1. Cook the 1 lb. ground turkey and drain grease. Add the taco seasoning … [Read more...]

Noah’s Ark Animated Feature Film

D2A1AF0C-83C2-42DC-A783-CD63A209937B

I was sent a copy of this title for the purpose of this review. However my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Noah's Ark Animated Feature Film My Thoughts   I love coming across any animated films or books that depict bible stories. It is a great way to get those stories into the heads of the kids. The animated feature film Noah's Ark brings to life the character of Noah and helps the children to understand what it might have been like for him to build an ark. The trials that his family went through as well as the work he put into finding the animals and caring for them.   I love the cute little twist that this animated film put on the Noah's Ark story. Of course it is not 100% to scripture...but it still lets the children know the importance of the story. As you can imagine this was something that not only changed Noah and his life forever...but the life of his family. I can imagine that it was not easy for any of them! On The … [Read more...]
