Disney Dollars


On our drive home from Disneyland, my husband asked me what my favorite part of the trip was. Upon reflection, I realized that one of my favorite parts was our money system that we used. We called it “Disney Dollars”.

Elevator Etiquette


I am always amazed at how fascinated my kids are with elevators. We can be at the most magical place on earth or visiting my small hometown and it doesn’t matter. As long as the hotel has a pool and an elevator, the kids think they have died and gone to heaven.

Service Saturdays


We watched a video recently about families serving all over the world in different capacities. I was inspired by the video and the importance of service, and kids are less likely to be snotty and entitled, if they learn to serve, right? As I watched the video, I asked, “How can our family serve more?” Almost as I asked the question, the answer came to me: “Service Saturdays”.

Paying for Peace


My kids have been fighting like cats and dogs for a while now and it drives me crazy. We were headed out on a 12 hour car ride and I wanted to deter the fighting. I went back into the archives of my childhood and pulled out an idea that my mom did with us on one of our trips- she paid for peace.

Manner #15: Drinkware Do’s and Don’ts


I set out a glass, tumbler, cup, mug, and a goblet. I asked my kids, “What do all of these have in common?” The kids knew they were all used for drinking beverages. I also wrote the different names on index cards. Then I had the kids match the name with the correct object. It was time to talk about drinkware do’s and don’ts.

April Fools’ Day Ideas


April Fools’ Day isn’t even on my radar until I wake up that day and try to throw something together. It is not my favorite holiday and I don’t like pranks, but this year my kids have been reminiscing about what I did last year. The giggles and sparkly eyes, as they’ve remembered last year, are motivation for me to come up with something for this year.
