School Lunch Planner {Free Printable}

lunch menu planner

Last year, I wrote a post on Back to School Organization, and I realized that the area I really needed help with was school lunches.  I have items in four different cupboards, and it is always a mad dash in the morning to throw things in my daughter’s lunchbox.  So imagine the frustration at the end of the day when half of the food comes home uneaten.  One of the suggestions that I saw repeatedly was to involve the children more in packing {Read More}

Monday Funday 07/19 + 10 Great Summer DIYs


Welcome back to Monday Funday Link Party! I can’t believe another week of summer has gone by!  We spent this past week vacationing in NYC, which was absolutely amazing, but holy cow croweded!  I never knew so many people could exist in one spot!  And the honking from the drivers?! Wow!  I was happy to get back to my quiet home, although we did have a ton of fun!  We went the wax museum (my daughter’s fave), saw Matilda on Broadway (Ah-MAZ-ing!), {Read More}

Monday Funday 07/12 + 12 Fun Summer Projects


Hi all! How has your summer been so far?  Ours has been crazy busy – we spent last week in upstate New York, travelling around the Watertown area and then headed over to Lake Placid and the Adirondacks – it was so beautiful!  Here’s one of my favourite pictures from our week: It was taken in Sacket’s Harbour, which we learned was a very important site during the war of 1812. We got to see the fireworks in Lake Placid {Read More}

Create Your Own Sunshine with an Iron On Umbrella DIY

This Iron on Umbrella DIY is a quick project and a simple reminder that any day can be filled with sunshine, even if its raining!

When I was a kid, we went outside in the rain, and we played in the puddles or took walks with friends under big umbrellas – and it was fun. We didn’t need the sun to be shining to have fun (because let’s face it, in Newfoundland, if you wait for the perfect weather, you’d only have fun about 5 days a year), and I really loved a good sunshower.  I try to encourage my own kids to do the {Read More}

Summer Adventures – Host the Ultimate Water War

Summer Adventures: Host a Water War in your own backyard with these fun and simple tips... like don't forget the sunscreen!

Every so often in the summer, we have a day where I really don’t want to leave the comfort of my air conditioned house.  A trip to the beach, or even the park, is just not happening on these kinds of days.  (Please jump in at any time and let me know I’m not alone here!) However, my desire to stay inside doesn’t seem to temper the childrens desire for adventure, and if anything, only seems to spark it more. {Read More}

Be ready for any summer sun adventure, especially a beachy one, with this prepacked Beach Day box - it will make prepping to go to the beach a breeze!  Just add sunscreen and you're out the door!

Although many of you have been out of school for weeks, our kids just finished school this past Thursday, which means summer is now full speed ahead. We still have soccer two nights a week for both girls and wrestling one night a week for Cecelia, so we like to play it low key and spontaneous during the day – which often means last minute trips to the beach. One of the things I hated was packing the beach bag {Read More}
