The value of education is one that we cannot put a number to, we want our kids to be more educated than ourselves, no matter what the level of education we have. We strive to educated our children in one way or another even sometimes before they are out of the womb. Children are also very inquisitive and crave the desire to learn new things, how we teach them those new things can be via various sources and media. The trickiest part is finding something to keep them happy and interested in while keeping the educational value in the process.
One program we have found that my children both adore, is the True Learning program. True Learning covers six basic subjects which include: True Thinking, True Motor skills, True Math, Literacy, Art and True World. Each of these True Learning subjects consist of 4 different levels of advancement. Each level builds upon the previous level and the content is created to ensure success and mastery in each subject. By introducing each subject in an intuitive manner, the skills are reinforced and built upon which in turn creates success. Created for children ages 3 – 6 years, True Learning will challenge and simulate with each level.
True Learning consists of a package of 3,000 different worksheets and activities that are both fun and educational. The package comes on a CD which you can view and print yourself on your own computer (the worksheets are in a PDF format so Adobe Acrobat is required). Each worksheet has fun and colorful graphics which will encourage your child to stay on task and take them through a learning process that keeps them interested and is fun at the same time. From a level one worksheet that can teach them how to count, to a level four worksheet that teaches multiplication, learning to draw a curve and color, recognizing basic letters to learning the relationships between words, even fun craft worksheets to build on motor skills. True Learning has it all for every level a child may be at.

With the company wide belief in love, music and peace HeyJute choses to make the world a better place by being eco-friendly and helping those in need around the globe.
Now wondering why their name is HeyJute? Well this company has decided to use Jute with their products. What is Jute? According to the HeyJute website:
Jute is a long, soft, shiny plant fibre that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. It is produced from plants in the genus Corchorus. Jute is second only to cotton, in amount produced and its variety of uses. Jute fibres are composed primarily of the plant materials cellulose and lignin.
Jute is also 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and has many more benefits as well, you can see the list of the benefits of Jute by visiting the HeyJute website here.
From fashion to home decor, laptop sleeves to beach totes, HeyJute has so many great environmentally friendly products that anyone could use, they even carry iPod cases!
I own both a beach tote bag and a sling bag from HeyJute. I can say that they are great bags, very roomy and its great to know they’re environmentally friendly. My sling bag is my favorite, made with a jute-cotton blend it’s so soft and comfortable to wear on my shoulder, it also has a divider pouch inside which is great when I take it with me to keep my things on one side and the kiddos on the other. My beach tote bag is just great, I can’t wait to use it the next time we’re headed out for an outdoor outing, its big (15″x15″x6″) and is perfect to store all you need for the outdoors, it also has a pouch inside which is handy to keep those lotions in.
Visit www.heyjute.com for more information and to see more of their great eco-friendly products!

That’s news to me. My girls have been eating cereal ever since they could chew. They love their cereal, all sorts. We try to buy the healthier options and as a treat sometimes they get some peanut butter crunch once in a blue moon, but never once have I thought of anything besides nutritional facts.
According to Nature’s Path, who makes the Envirokidz cereals, (which Aria loves the Gorilla Munch) their products can be a choking hazard to children under 5 years of age. When I heard this I was dumbfounded. Cereal a choking hazard? KIDS cereal a choking hazard???? Never have I heard this before, nor have I seen anything stating the fact on their website or their boxes of cereal. But according to one representative for their company Envirokidz cereals are geared towards kids ages 5 and up because of a ‘choking hazard’!!!
I guess I missed the boat on this one, my 2 year old and 4 year old have been eating this cereal for a while. I guess this is just a warning to other parents out there with children under 5 years, to be careful when buying Envirokidz for your family, if you have children under 5, Nature’s Path doesn’t recommend you feeding your children their products.

I admit, I’m not into motorcycles or Harley-Davidson or anything like that, but with the way gas prices are going, if I don’t have to take the kids with me, then something like this is looking better and better everyday.
One of the things that sound quite appealing, maybe not now but in some point in my life, once the kids are grown and its time for us as adults to travel on our own something like Motorcycle Tours might be fun!
EagleRider is the Harley-Davidson motorcycle rental concept and also the guided motorcycle tour business. They are one of the world’s largest motorcycle tourism company that rents not only motorcycles but ATVs, Dirt Bikes, Scooters, Snowmobiles, and Watercraft. EagleRider understands the needs of motorcycle enthusiasts as well as adventure travelers. They rent in some of the most desirable tourist destinations in the world.
Might be a great way to do something a little ‘different’ for once, going on Motorcycle Tours really does sound fun and exciting for a future vacation.
