$100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

Disney Ribbon

So, on the last Amazon Blast giveaway, I mentioned looking for some craft items but not being able to find them at Michael’s.  Well, believe it or not, I did find what I was looking for on Amazon after changing my search terms a few times.  I want to make ribbon keychains, and I found the hardware that I need.  Now, I just have to wait for the hardware to make it to my house, and then, I will be {Read More}

Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine

Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine

As homeschool students in Pennsylvania, we have to include Pennsylvania history as part of our required learning.  We love history, and there is no better way to learn history than to experience it first hand.  Our part of Pennsylvania is known as anthracite coal country, so we decided to go experience the Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine recently for a field trip.   The Pioneer Tunnel is located in Ashland, PA.  Make sure to check out the schedule on their website {Read More}

BJ’s Wholesale Club


I haven’t been to a wholesale club store in a few years now, and I really miss it!  We moved east last year which meant leaving the wholesale clubs we were used to.  However, it appears that we are now in BJ’s Wholesale Club territory.  We have not had the opportunity to make a trip to BJ’s, yet, as the nearest club is over 60 miles away; however, when we get the chance to head to one, I will look {Read More}

Amazon Gift Card Giveaway Blast


I have a secret…  I’m addicted to crafts involving Disney.  Recently, I found a few things in a Facebook group I’m a part of that I would love to make.  Unfortunately, when I went to Michael’s late, I noticed that they didn’t have many of the things I was looking for.  You know what that means?  You bet!  I’m off to find these items on Amazon!  Think I’ll find them? Anyway, it is time for another $100 Amazon gift card {Read More}

Our Trip to ZooAmerica

American Alligator

Earlier this month, I posted about our trip to see Disney On Ice in Hershey PA.  Well, we spent the night and decided to play tourist the next day.  A field trip, so to say.  We hadn’t really planned where to go in advance but ended up at ZooAmerica.  We hadn’t really thought about going before because it seemed rather small.  Yes, it is small compared to other zoos; however, there are a lot of great animals to see and {Read More}

We are all about reading around here, and my daughter’s favorite subject is history.  Bethlehem Books seems to meld these two together into the perfect mix for my kids.  I still have not purchased any of their books, yet, as I’m still planning our curriculum for next year.  However, several of these books are definitely intriguing and may end up on our reading list for next year.  If you are a homeschooler, have you planned your curriculum, yet?

Ready for Another $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway?


There are a few things that I really like to purchase on Amazon.  One of those things is books.  It doesn’t matter whether if the books are in Kindle format or hard copy format because I think Amazon has some incredible prices.  Yesterday, I ordered a book from The Unofficial Guide series about Disney Cruise Line, but another book that I’ve found on Amazon that is a good price is The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World with Kids 2014. {Read More}
