Father's Day is tomorrow...just thought I would remind you in case you forgot! Fathers day and my husbands birthday are always the same week so he gets a lot of extra special attention this week! Most years I make a cute video with a cute daddy song and pictures of him with the kids! He loves them! This year I did something a little different. It's not done yet, but I will show you next week.
Today I thought I would share with you some of my favorite Father's Day Media. Songs, commercials and movies to get you excited for this weekend! They are fun to watch as a family!

It's is really really cool! My kids usually fight over the LeapPad the most, but they actually fight over who gets this book now. It is very interactive, teaches noun and verb recognition, and it also teaches position words and deductive reasoning. One of the coolest things about this book is that it is 3D, but you know how when you look at normal 3D books picture isn't clear without the glasses. In this book you can see it perfect, but it enhances the fun of the book by putting on the glasses. I guess they actually recreated 3D effects just for this book! The color in this book is really nice which makes the experience even better.

Anyway, to make a long story short. This girl is awesome, she is from close to where I live, and has an amazing voice and can write great songs. Songs that I even let my kids listen to! Not only is she an amazing singer/songwriting she is a wife and mom of three kids! She is trying to raise money to produce a new CD called "Going Places". I never realized how expensive it was to do this, but it is. To earn the funds she started a Kickstarter project. This is where you come in. You can become her backer! Cool huh. You can donate as little as $1 and you are a backer! She also gives you something back if you donate! Which I think is pretty awesome. She will mail you a post card, give you a free download of her new CD, all the way up to sing at an event for you or even write a song for you! Watch this video for a little more info!
Have a great day and go listen to her music on Youtube or her site! She's a good mix of country, pop, and rock! She says she is Rootsie-Folk-IndiePop Rock! You will like her!

There was a lot of good things about living in this neighborhood, but with that also came some things that were hard and not so good. Small homes, no storage space, feeling a little to close to your neighbors, gossip, people thinking that you were clicky because you and your neighbors are good friends, kids got sick of seeing each other all the time, or sick from each other LOL, constant knocking on the door, and loud kids which was mostly my own 3 boys! They needed space to be boys and didn't have it! We always joked that it was like living in the college dorms as adults with kids. It was a great place to live and yes it did have it's ups and downs, but for the most part we loved it, but there came a
time that we knew we needed space, to not rent, and to move on!
My husband and I finally decided in order to meet people we needed to be more social....duh! So we made sure we attended things going on in the community/ward. My husband joined the fire department as a volunteer. I am serving in the Young Women's program and have met some amazing ladies there. Within the last couple months we have felt an outpouring of kindness in our ward and area. Our neighbor, just an older lady and her husband, are wonderful. My kids are making friends who's parents I now know. People here are so awesome! They are so humble and real. No one seems to flaunt their money, they all live in modest homes, and they are so kind and sincere. We just love living here. We really do! So if your thinking of moving to the country...do it!
