Keeping Kids Creativity Flowing this Summer! #KeepBuilding

We are in the middle of a heat wave in Boston, and even the kids are water logged from the pool and choosing to lounge around in the air conditioning.  However I refuse to let them spend their summer stuck in front of a screen.
I want them to use their imaginations, be creative, and when needed follow directions.  Luckily their favorite activity, building with LEGO bricks, allows them to do all that!

What to Keep in your Priority Moving Box, Plus my Top Moving Tips! #CleanHomeSavings

Are you planning a move?  We are!  We announced to our family last week that we are are moving down to the Tampa area of Florida!
For the past 5 years or so, my husband and I have debated between moving to South Carolina or Florida, and a couple years ago we took a road trip up and down the east coast and all around Florida, trying to decide on where we wanted to transplant to.  We ended up staying in Massachusetts because I chickened out at the idea of being away from all my family while the kids were so young.  However they have gotten older, and easier, so the move was back on the table.  Then my parents made the sudden decision 6 months ago to make their Florida home, their permanent home.  Suddenly the idea of moving became easier.  My father is home during the day and my mother is working from home so they were able to find us an apartment to transition into and they had already gotten to know the area towns and local establishments.
Plus my brother is only 5 to 6 hours away from Florida in South Carolina, and visits the Tampa area every couple months.  We had been taking a long road trip to South Carolina twice a year over the last few years, so being closer to him is a huge perk.
