TheGoodDinosaur55ae6d5f1e9f5

My family is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Disney/Pixar’s newest flick, The Good Dinosaur!

The Good Dinosaur asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa) makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. Check out the preview here! 

I have some coloring sheets, a memory game and a hexaflexagon to share with you while we all wait for this sure-to-be family favorite to open.

Have you been looking for something fun and unique to do in the area? Located at the National HarborBobby McKey’s is the place to check out! Whether you are looking for a fun family day activity, date night, or a girls’ night, they have it all

Each night, two to four piano players in teams of two take your requests and keep the crowd singing. You write your song request on the napkins provided for just that. These entertainers can play it all! We heard everything from Journey, to Taylor Swift, to Neil Diamond, to classic nursery rhymes. We were at the family friendly show. I’ve heard it can get even more entertaining in the evening, where you’ll see the entertainer play everything from drums, to fiddle, to guitar, all while taking your requests.

Perkley Agents- More Than A Video Game

163cc76

Over the summer my son had the chance to play the online spy game, Perkley Agents. It was fun and entertaining, and great for a 9 year-old. Perkley Agents is a secret agent organization that solves mysteries and fights crime.

Once signed up, you become an agent. Agents gather clues, solve mysteries, and save the world, one operation at a time. As a Perkley Agent, you will be assigned missions and report your progress to Headquarters through your Back Office. You must be smart and determined. But don’t worry, they will give you the classified training and resources you need. You can also opt to buy extra spy gear to enhance the game play for your child. This makes the missions more real and you child feels more involved.

FullSizeRender-7

Let’s face it, we all like to make sure our kids’ first day or first few days are perfect. By perfect I mean lunches made, homework done, no one yelling, “I need my folder!” as you close the door, and no one eating a pop tart for breakfast. We like to start our kids off on a good note, but why not keep it there? Why not maintain the level of organization, planning, and readiness all year just as well as you do the first week. I have a few simple, relatively easy things you can do to make you and your child’s year run smoothly, like a well orchestrated machine! Check out these great ideas and the how-to thanks to some of my fellow bloggers 🙂
