Planning ahead with Minted

I'm starting to think that I need a stronger word than "planner" to describe myself. I feel like I'm always worrying thinking about things so far in advance that it actually doesn't make any sense but I can't seem to stop myself.

Learning to read the high-tech way with LeapReader

I will be the first to admit that while our house is full of books and bookworms who love them, I do not have a clue about how to teach my children to actually read on their own. Some of the things that we're doing to encourage literacy: read to the girls daily, point out letters/words/numbers on signs or in flyers (this is actually how I discovered that Rowan can identify numbers, she started pointing them out on price signs one day), visit the library so they can pick out their own books, have Read more [...]
