Park Day

Despite it being winter we have been having some wonderful weather in our area on and off.  This weekend we were all well enough and the weather was perfect that we headed for the park.  I thought it would be fun to share some pics of the kids having fun at the park.  So enjoy!

Valentine's Activities

We did not get as much done for Valentine's Day as I wanted due to lots of illness and er visit.  Here is what we got to.

The V sorting and puzzles were just a couple of activities we did from the packet I printed from Over The Big Moon.

Then we did a heart number matching activity I got from Childcareland.com.

M also worked on some simple math using the following activity that I found at Home School Creations in their Valentine's Day Pack.  We also did several of the other activities from this packet but just didn't get any pictures.

Sorry no pictures of the kids in action since most of the time we were under the weather and barely making it through some of the activities.

We have taken this past week off to try to recover from all of our illness.  Next week we will be doing a unit on Dr. Seuss.  Tomorrow if you have a Target near by stop in during the morning because they will be doing their Read Across America day using the book The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.  Besides the Target event we also plan on going to see The Lorax in the movie theater since it comes out next Friday, March 2nd.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Philips SatinPerfect HP6576/50 Epilator -Review

I am a Bzz Agent and received the Philips SatinPerfect HP6576/50 free for review.  Here is a picture of what I received.

 Before receiving this epilator I have only used toss and throw razors and shaving cream to shave.  I thought it would be fun to try something new to remove hair from my body to see if it works any better.  This product is suppose to provide silky smoothness that lasts for up to 4 weeks in just minutes, which I thought was great and in that I wouldn't have to work at removing unwanted hair on my body every couple of days.  I initially tried the Philips Satin Perfect Epilator on a small area of my leg to see how it would work.  The manual did say I might experience a little pain or irritation if I have not used before.  I attached the active hair lifter attachment to the epiliator since my hairs on my leg tend to lay down more then stand straight up.  It worked great at lifting the hair up away from my skin so the epilator could remove the hair.  The first few times I used it I do have to say there was some discomfort but on a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being the worst I would say it was about a 3 in discomfort.  The area that I removed hair from was a little irritated after the removal of hair but went away in about an hour, which the manual said was normal for it being my first time using.  My skin is very dry to begin with during the winter so I figure that might have increased some of the irritation after using the epilator on my leg too.  It has been about a week since I have used it on the area of my leg and my skin and I see very little hair growth.  So far I like what I have seen from the Philips Satin Perfect Epilator and plan on using it some more and trying out some of the other attachments.  I will come back in another week or so and let you know more about what I think about the Philips SatinPerfect Epilator.  If you have any questions about this please comment below and I will try to answer them.
