Wonder Park Movie, Teaches Children to Deal With Their Feelings
Kids deal with tougher emotions than we would like to admit. Decisions that we as parents make and even life situations that we can’t change such as illness or even death are hard on their little minds. They often like to suppress their feelings, get angry, and even try (without realizing it) to change, in their heads, the way things really are. The movie, Wonder Park, depicts, in a childlike way, the response a child can have to life’s difficult times. In the end, it shows how we can use the negative in our life for the better if we just take the time to realize when we may need to change the way we are thinking. It also shows how our anger and resentment during a negative situation can destroy others.
It Wasn’t Easy But We Officially Have a Kindergarten Graduate
For those who follow my blog pretty closely, you will know we have a sweet little six-year-old. We had the privilege to be her foster parents from the time she was 19 months old until we became her official parents in February of 2017. It hasn’t always been an easy process but OH, SO REWARDING! You can read her story HERE.
A Lancaster Restaurant You Must Try
Everyone loves a great meal. The smells and taste of our favorite food can be an amazing indulgence. Having two boys ages 16 and 12, and a husband who loves his meat, we have long since passed the stage where a “happy meal” makes them happy. Many times after a nice sit-down meal, our boys will finish their meal only to follow with “I am still hungry” or just simply snatching a bite or two off their sister’s plate when she is not looking! Because of this great teen phenomenon, sometimes, we willingly sacrifice quality for quantity. We may not have the best-tasting food but at least my guys can get filled up!
Gettysburg Audio Driving Tour – Perfect Day at Gettysburg
As someone who loves US History, Gettysburg had always been one of the “bucket list” items. Many times as I had read the accounts of the brave soldiers who served and fought here, I could only imagine what it would be like to stand on the very ground I had read about.
