Going Beyond The Reef With Moana
Our Thoughts and Reflections on Disney's Moana

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Walt Disney Studios.  We attended a complimentary screening of Moana to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed are our own.

Welcome To Monster High
Teaching Kids About Self-Acceptance and How to Celebrate Their Uniqueness

This post is sponsored by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

In case you were wondering, we are still going strong with the 52 Books In 2016 Challenge.  This May book wrap-up would have been up sooner if I hadn’t misplaced the notebook I was using to keep track of our reads.  No worries, a little Summer decluttering helped me to find it buried underneath a pile of papers and coupons.  May was a very good reading month for us with a total of 62 books read for the month. Check out the  ...

    It’s a wrap!  Month four of the 52 Books In 2016 Reading Challenge is under our belts.  We hit the ground running this month to scratch off more books from our TBR list.   We ended April with a total of 49 books read for the month.  We read roughly 1.5 books a day.  Last month I choose to read the kids one short picture book each night.  In addition to the picture book I also read them a bit of their chosen chapter book for the week.
