Random Tid Bits

  1. It's finals time at the school I work at, so I've been busy! 

  2. Every day Mica asks, "So what are we doing tonight? Are we going to the theater?" Ya I'll be glad when Aunt Angie takes him to Avengers: Infinity War tomorrow!

  3. Isaak wanted to do his science project on rainbows and prisms. I bought one, printed images out for him, and Travis thought because people wouldn't be able to see rainbows at his display it wasn't good enough. I was thinking, Why not draw what happens? 

    All the sudden he decided to have him do his project on hydroelectricity. He carved a wax something-r-rather downstairs for a few nights. He got a small bulb and a small motor. All the while I was saying, "Don't you think this is too hard for Isaak?" He said, "No it's not." Well his whole something-r-rather wouldn't work right. The motor wasn't strong enough. All that happened, was that he got water all over the floor. I was thinking I told you so. and Man! What are we going to do now? I knew he was pissed with himself when I heard a bunch of cussing downstairs. Me saying anything that he already knew wouldn't help. I kept my mouth shut.

    Isaak's project is due on Wednesday. He was naturally really upset, and blamed himself for not being downstairs working with Dad more.

    I quickly googled ideas for 4th grade. I boiled some eggs, ran to the store to get soda, and he's doing a test on what liquid makes egg shells break down the fastest. My guess: Soda - Coke or Vinegar before water or milk. The egg shell is supposed to be like your teeth. I just hope it breaks down fast! If it doesn't I may have to make it dissolve a little faster. Shhh! Don't tell anyone. 

  4. I ordered business cards. They turned out like crap. Not on my end. I got rounded corners, and they were all sort of out of wack. I tried messaging the company twice about my crappy cards, but have heard nothing. Looks like I won't go back there again. It's too bad because I've ordered from them before and didn't have a problem. 

  5. Sometimes I have Isaak draw people on my feet. Ya I'm strange, but he loves it. What's something odd you've done to entertain kids?

@DrJacobsNatural Soap Review

I love natural soaps!

Travis and Isaak are those boys that are always outside, digging in the dirt, or working on some art project. They just get dirty. Isaak has pretty sensitive skin, so I need to make sure he doesn't use a harsh soap to clean up with. I even make my own laundry soap to prevent Isaak skin from breaking out.

Dr Jacobs Naturals Soap is great for cleaning and washing our bodies.

BeLive Omega 3 Gummies

BeLive Makes Omega 3 Gummies That Are:
  • High in fiber - Isaak in particular needs fiber in his diet. There was once upon a time that he went to the hospital with lots of lower tummy pain. We thought appendix. It turned out he was full of poop. That was an expensive poop. They said to up his fiber. 
  • Low in carbs - We all need to lower our carbs.
  • High in omega-3 fatty acids - We need this before work and school. Omega-3 helps boost brain power.
  • High in antioxidants - This is something everyone needs.
  • Aids weight loss - This is sometime I need.
  • Reduces stress - This is something I need.
  • Supports eye health - This is also something I need. During allergy season my eyes get really itchy and sore.
  • Sugar-Free - We all get too much sugar, so it's great that these are sugar free. They don't taste bad at all.
  • Gluten Free - Considering that gluten turns into sugar, it's good there's none of that as well!
  • Vegan - I'm not a vegan, but respect those that are. I really don't think there's a need to have animal parts in vitamins. 

Packaged Well
  • The opening of the bottle was coated with foil and foam. 
  • The cap was covered in a plastic film.
  • I do wish companies would use glass instead of plastic jars, but at least BeLive fills their jars pretty full. 

With Allergies On the Rise it's Important to Be Safe:
  • No gluten
  • No wheat
  • No peanuts
  • No soy
  • No eggs
  • No fish or shellfish
  • No GMO products

WW: Show Choir {Linky}

My son Isaak joined Show Choir this year. I'm not sure if he'll do it another year, or not. He's only in 4th grade right now, and is just testing the waters out with things.

I hear him sing and sing at home, but when he's on the bleachers in front of everyone he I just don't see his mouth moving all that much. I did capture this image, which shows one of his happier, animated times.
