Ever wish you had markers

My daughter loves to draw with markers My daughter sat down last night to draw and color. This was a night just like any other in our home.

These markers are guaranteed to not dry out if the cap is left off, for seven days! The great people at The Pencil Grip gave us the opportunity to try out these new markers, and boyRead More →

I have a science background and so it was easy when my kids were younger to fall back on the zoologist in me. I couldRead More →

Jeremy Camp Shared "The Answer" With My Teens

I Am So Glad I Discovered Jeremy Camp’s Music I had frankly never heard of Jeremy Camp before I had the opportunity to review new CD (The Answer) for FlyBy, but I am so thankful that I did.

My kids listen to this music over,Read More →
