10 Activities to Make Your Kids Forget About Screen Time

We are only a few weeks into summer vacation and my daughter has already asked for screen time more than I care to admit. She normally loves playing outside but this summer it is all about technology. She has a beautiful imagination so I have decided screen time is out and creativity is in.

Unwavering Friendship
Lessons From Wisteria Lane

On the recommendation of a friend I recently started watching the women of Wisteria Lane. That’s right, those Desperate Housewives. I love them! I love them not only for their crazy antics and endless mysteries but, most of all, for their unwavering friendship.
