STEM with Blaze and the Monster Machines- Race into Velocityville

Image
Is STEM a thing your kids are into? I knew nothing of it, until Broxton started Elementary School and brought home a flier about "STEM NIGHT."  That had me trying to figure it all out.
S - Science
T - Technology
E - Engineering
M - Math

Now, it seems like STEM is everywhere, or either I just notice it more now than before.  Did you know that great kids shows like BLAZE  and the Monster Machines also teaches STEM?

Roald Dahl's The BFG

Image
March is reading awareness month, so I wanted to share with you a reminder of a childhood classic.  If you remember The BFG by Roald Dahl, you might know that it was released as an animated version back in 1989, well, did you know they re-released it last year?  Yes, they did, so make sure to keep reading!
I am going to share other books with you, leading up to March, but wanted to kick it off with an animated adaptation, just to change it up for you all!

Charge it up for Valentines! #myCharge

Image
Do you celebrate Valentines with Chocolate, Flowers, Jewelry, or any other traditional gift?  Why not throw him (or her) for a loop and change it up this year!!! Keep things charged with the HubPlus by myCharge.  This is great, as it is not gender specific and it isn't seasonal.  I can't lie, after things recently, I think everyone needs to have a back up portable charger!

Want to know what I mean?

Does Your Insurance Company Really Have Your Back?

Please take a minute to think about your insurance.  I know it isn't one that many think about all the time, but since watching the destruction from the tornadoes in Albany, Georgia, I can't begin to imagine what they are going through right now.

Insurance Claim Nightmare: Does Your Insurance Company Really Have Your Back?

Imagine returning from a vacation to find your house has been robbed, flooded, or covered in toxic asbestos and harmful fiberglass.  Sadly, this scenario actually happened to Todd Kozikowski's family. An unexpected home renovation error ended up costing his family their health, home, and resulted in long legal battles—all because the insurance carrier didn't provide the coverage the family thought it did. Today, Todd has made it his mission to spare others from the same nightmare his family experienced. He and his team recently launched Clearsurance (www.clearsurance.com) the  world's first company to level the pla…

An update on Albany, Georgia. #AlbanyStrong

I know I shared with you about the Tornadoes that hit my hometown on January 2nd when I asked for Prayers for Albany.  Now, I want to share with you about January 22nd.
(If this is a repeat for any of you, sorry!)

So, the tornadoes hit on January 2nd and there was NO coverage, minus the local news.  Lucky for the locals, someone immediately started a Facebook page for people to check in and say if they needed things.  It was bad.  The tree covered streets that we were known for were hit and people said it was like a bomb went off.  The community reached out to one another and really was "neighbor helping neighbor."  It was a blessing that there were no casualties and sadly, I think that is what kept the news from reporting on how bad they were hit down there.  I tried to do what I could from here, but in the grand scheme of things, it wasn't much.  Then... Tragedy hit again.  January 22nd.  I hate to report that this time, there were casualties and it was much worse th…
