Happy Monday!

Good Monday Morning! I woke up to an unexpected day off. A crazy rain storm blew through here last night and early this morning causing downed trees, impassable roads and power outages so school got cancelled! I am now happily sipping on my second cup of coffee while laundry is going. I like to use these bonus days to catch up on chores and also do some fun stuff like reading.

I am currently reading this book...


It's my first Kristin Higgins book and I am loving it! I hope to finish it up today so I can start my new book..


As I told you guys on Friday, I am hooked on Leah's show on A&E about Scientology so I thought I would pick up her book. I know a couple of people who read it and couldn't put it down. If you are interested, I picked mine up yesterday at Barnes & Noble. It was on the bargain shelf for $6.98. I am a member and they were having member days this weekend so I got an additional 20% off. While I was there, I also picked up a couple of Christma…

First up is my new favorite show:

Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. Oh my Word! I was perusing the channels a few weeks ago and I came across an episode of this show and I was immediately mesmerized. I quickly binge watched season 1 and I'm all caught up. They are currently on Season 2. I never knew anything about Scientology. I mean nothing. After watching the show, I feel like I can have an intelligent conversation about the "church" and it's practices, policies and beliefs. I love exposes and investigative type shows so it's no surprise I am completely hooked on it. Leah and Mike Rinder, both former Scientologists, go around and expose some of the "church's" less than honorable practices and policies. They talk to former Scientologists, …

Scarecrow Crunch

A couple of days ago, Andrea from www.momfessionals.com posted a blog entry where she created this super cute snack idea she did with her kiddos. It had math and sorting and following directions and it looked FUN! I immediately thought about how much my preschoolers would love doing it too.

On Fridays, we usually do something food related. We always try to incorporate learning in there as well. Counting, sorting, measuring, taking turns, etc...

I made a few adjustments and called our snack mix Scarecrow Crunch. Here are some photos I took...


I created bag toppers becaues I'm a crafter at heart and it's what I do. LOL!


Then to keep the mess to a minimum, I put the snack size plastic bags inside cups labeled with each child's name on it. Another learning tool ... name recognition. Each child had to find the cup with his or her name on it.


Then I organized the ingredients on brown butcher paper and put the number (the amount of each snack ingredient) directly under …
