There’s nothing I love more about Summer than the excuse to be outdoors making a mess.  I’m also always on the lookout for fun ways to explore painting with kids.  So when I found Crystal, Jewel and Rosie sharing 5 Ways to Paint with Balloons, I knew I had to jump onboard and spread the word.

It may be a tiny bit early to start tooting the Fourth of July horn, but I know that within a blink of an eye, June will be over, and the 4th will be upon us.  In year’s past, I have literally missed getting out a 4th of July “you made it” out due to this phenomenon, so this year I decided I’d start early.

Do you know the difference between Memorial and Veteran’s Day?  If you had to pause before answering, you’re not alone.  Both holidays are meant to honor those that have served in the United States Armed Forces. The difference is that Memorial Day honors those who have given their lives in the service of our Country.  Veteran’s Day honors those that are still alive.  So, although the sentiment may be there, you don’t really want to wish a veteran a “Happy Memorial Day”.  

In my world we are CA-RAY-ZEE busy - which can only mean one thing...Summer is approaching.  And if you are thinking Summer, I can think of only one thing that can make it sweeter...Popsicles!

If you've got 15 minutes to spare, and you happen to love heartstring pulling stories, you have got to check out this video.  My mom sent it to me about 2 weeks ago. I just can stop thinking about it.  It touches me on so many levels and reminds me that there are so many stories out there.
