Find Me! - Seek and Find Book Series - REVIEW

Friday, April 24, 2020

DISCLOSURE: I received free books in exchange for my honest review. No further compensation was provided. All opinions are my own.

The schools closed in our state a little over a month ago. While they have given us packets and some general guidelines on what we should be teaching them, I've struggled with other ways to keep my kids engaged and interested. Sometimes the material in the packets would be too tedious and my kids would get tired or bored.

Recently, I had the chance to review two books from a new series from Happy Fox Books, called Find Me! They were a happy distraction for my kids from their usual math and reading assignments. And it also kept them occupied for a bit, which allowed me to get some work done. That was greatly appreciated, now that the kids are here all the time!

My First Experience With Blue Apron - REVIEW

Thursday, April 23, 2020

About a month ago, my husband and I decided we were going to give Blue Apron a try. We had been playing around with the idea of signing up for a meal delivery service for a couple years after we had had the chance to try a different meal delivery service. We liked the convenience of it. Now, given the current circumstances and stay-at-home order issued by our state, our Blue Apron box came at a perfect time.

Blue Apron is one of many meal delivery services currently available. They deliver the ingredients and the recipe for the meals you choose each week. You can choose how often and how many meals you want to receive. You can even choose which recipes you want to try.

Our first box included everything needed to prepare three different meals. We chose a 4 serving plan. Even though we are a family of six, our kids are pretty picky and we knew they all wouldn't always be willing to try everything that came.
