So, September will bring a new column we are going to try. For years, I have been asked by many friends and readers to incorporate some simple recipes, preferably with video, but I am not at the video part yet. Let’s see how this goes and we can build together as time goes by.
Whether we are ready or not, even if you’re child was in a program most of the Summer; school shopping will be happening. I have gathered some of the items on our list as well as some that I think look like great options.
I’ve been getting some great messages and emails asking for more book recommendations. I am so glad some of you are finding them helpful. It really has been my escape these past few months, I love having a challenge set for myself and I spend lots of time making lots of books I want to read! Please share yours too.
The first one was suggested by a developmental pediatricau we saw recenthly for our son, she said age did not matter and we’d benefit from some of what isbeing offred in it. I will share what my husband and I find, we are both reading it.
I thought some of these may be helpful for you as well.
1. I have been escaping this Summer with my kindle. The ease of having it on me wherever I am and the night light, allow me to add a few minutes of my book so easily. If you love reading, I think this is a must. I still love having the feel of a book and the turning of pages, but this provides great ease!
With Kings Dominion so close to us in Richmond, and, having a child with Special Needs who loves spending time at Amusement Parks, I thought it would be a great idea to share some tips that work well for us as well as some of the great things Kings Dominion does to make it an enjoyable experience.
Here are some super simple ideas for the days that your kids are close to saying, or already saying, “I’m Bored”. Keep this handy and let your kids choose the one that makes them smile! Have another idea? Send it over, we’d love to add to ours.
This is a really neat app, RescueTime, it is free with a paid version as well.
It allows you to set goals to help keep you on track. You can see how much time is spent on your computer. You can also set an alarm to tell you when you spent more than 2 hours on Facebook.
10 Summers in Richmond, that is how many we have been here and every one of those Summers we have had a visit to Kingsmill. This is my first time writing about it and sharing a little about this family-friendly resort. I think the ability to be an hour from home and having so many of the comforts of home, give this an added perk for traveling with a child that has special needs.
