Dinosaur Escape Game Review/Giveaway

  I recently reviewed a very fun children's game from Peaceable Kingdom, titled," Dinosaur Escape." This game is one of Peaceable Kingdom's cooperative games.  A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each other. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun! Peaceable Kingdom’s cooperative board games use familiar game mechanisms – spinning a spinner, matching cards, moving a token, figuring out how to win! The difference in their games is players play together instead of fighting to be the winner.

Homeschool - To Do or Not To Do?

   Texas allows any parent to home school their child/children without any person coming into your home and insisting upon proof of what you have taught and what you haven't.  This is the state I live in and I have actually home schooled 3 high school students for 1 year each and they all proceeded to get their G.E.D's with each one passing their test the very first time.  All of these students were aged 17.
  Many parents today are afraid that home school means quitting or copping out.  I have talked to many parents who feels this way and they will not take the time to gather the facts and understand mine, and others, reason for homeschooling.
  So the question is - to home school or not?  What are the pro's and con's to each side?
  Let me first give you my reasons why I choose to home school:
 1. I am very concerned with what my children are being taught that is against our beliefs as Christians.  God has been taken out of our schools and this is a horrible decision made by our government.
 2. Bullying has become a major concern across our country in all schools today.  Suicide has become the answer to some children who can not cope with bullying.
 3. Children in a classroom of 20+ students are not able to get that one-on-one attention that is a must-have for many children.  Some children are sometimes embarrassed to seek out the teachers advice because they may be to shy which can result in a child failing due to lack of understanding.

Fun Wraps BSI Inc. Review/Giveaway

   Have you heard of these really cool wraps for children and adults?  Fun Wraps began when a little girl named Kori, sprained her wrist and her father, Dr. Mark, gave her the usual dull colored bandage to wrap it with.  When Kori got home she took markers and made her bandage look like a wild leopard print.  Everyone loved the newly designed bandage and hence Fun Wraps were born.  
   I was so happy to get to review 2 different Fun Wraps.  With 11 grandchildren and 3 of them that live with me, someone is always hurting something.  Below are the 2 Fun Wraps I reviewed:
