April showers bring May flowers, right? This popular proverb certainly rings true in most places in around the world, especially here for my family in Oregon. In getting excited about the Spring season and the month of April, we’ve been checking out books that celebrate everything fun the rains bring. These things include dancing in the rain, spring planting, and puddles! Speaking of puddles, we’ve been enjoying the book Puddle Jumpers – by Anne Margaret Lewis (author) and Nancy Cote (illustrator)!
I like to give back whenever I can, especially when purchasing gifts for special occasions or needed things for family, friends, and those who may need a helping hand. I’ve been teaching my children the impact of this choice in hopes they will share this practice with others they know and follow in my footsteps. With that being said, I’d like to shed the light on World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice.
The GeoSafari Jr. Sneak & Peek Periscope is great for exploring and staying hidden while doing so. My four and half year old son has used this when hiding behind trees, sneaking around corners, and in many other out of sight places.

Mom’s are pretty diverse but they all have one things in common and that is caring for their children . The stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks to My Mom are as diverse as mothers themselves. There are stories of hope, determination, life lessons, and so forth. I guarantee if you pick up this title that you’ll laugh, cry, smile, deeply resonate, be encouraged as a mother, and feel appreciation for the ones that mothered you in life whether biological or not.

I’ve been on the look out for things that my children can do whether at home or on the go that can nurture and grow their Faith in God. Specifically, around this time I start collection a little of this and that to bring along during our family vacation for the year. Things I tend to gather include coloring books, card games, stickers, a minimal number of art supplies, and a few music albums I believe they’ll enjoy listening to when riding in the car for several hours.
