Super Hero Kids Contest #Giveaway with David C Cook

Disclosure: I am posting as part of a blog tour. Opinions shared are mine.

My kids are HUGE into fandoms.  They love talking about characters from games and books.  Sometimes they also role play, a fun game of pretend that I remember playing as a child.  My son is a big fan of comic books in particular, and he really enjoys drawing.  The Super Hero Kids contest is perfect for him!

Does your child love comic books and super heroes?  If so, here’s a chance for you to make your child’s dream come true.  He (or she!) could be illustrated as a super hero!  This contest is in partnership with the Action Storybook Bible which my children LOVE to listen to in the car.  I bought it for around $20 a couple of years ago, and they listen to it all the time.  It’s been a fun way to learn about Bible stories, and it’s very different than the typical Sunday School class story!  [Read more…]

If you’ve been in the store recently, you’ve probably fought the crowds trying to buy school supplies.  Many new teachers get overwhelmed when it’s time to set up a classroom. That is totally understandable!  This is year 21 for me, so I have my room pretty stocked at this point.  I’ve figured out my teacher must have items, and made sure those were plentiful.  These 3 items made my list.  [Read more…]

Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things by Betsy Aldridge and Carrie DuBois-Shaw

Craving a cute, sassy book that is delightfully derpy?  Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things will give you a good giggle or two.  Imagine Elizabeth Bennet in Naked and Afraid, and you’ll have a little bit of an idea of the book’s concept!   This reality-TV version of Pride and Prejudice blends lore with the loony.   [Read more…]

Disclosure: Thanks to Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud for providing us with tickets. We enjoyed it! Groupon referral links are used; opinions shared are mine.

Every time we drive through Pigeon Forge, my kids ask if we can go to the Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Feud. The building is so eye-catching, you can’t miss it!  We were grateful to receive deeply discounted tickets to attend the dinner show this weekend.  The show was scheduled to start at 5:00 pm; make sure you arrive at least 45 minutes early.  I advise going at least an hour early so that you have time to enjoy the atmosphere before heading in for the show!

On-Trend Denim to Start School #Crazy8Denim Paypal #giveaway


Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links. I was compensated for this post.

It was a February afternoon when my son reminded me about the night’s choral performance at school.  No problem, I said.  Since we didn’t have time to run home before the concert, I’d packed a bag with his required clothes — a solid color shirt and denim jeans.  We stopped at a restaurant to eat supper and I sent him to the bathroom to change into his outfit.  Except there was a big problem — his clothes were too small!   [Read more…]

Blight by Alexandra Duncan book tour #giveaway

Favorite moments of summer:  Being still long enough for my cat to take a nap on my lap. Soft blankets.  Great books.  Working in my garden.
