Sabor Spanish Learning songs

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.
I live in the great state of Arizona. While English is the predominant language there is quite a bit of Spanish speaking around. In fact, there is a dual language program at one of the nearby elementary schools. While my kids are not in that program, I do think exposing them to another language (Spanish), will be beneficial for them in the future.
I was pleased to have the opportunity to review Sabor Spanish Learning Songs with my kids.

Blood Line book

One thing that I enjoy doing for myself is reading books. I have been taking more time for myself lately and so I have been looking for good books.  I was thrilled to read Blood Line by John J. Davis.

Have you heard of essential oils? Lately I have heard mention several uses for essential oils. I was intrigued and wanted to try them.  So when I had the chance to review Austrailian Tee Tree Oil I was excited.

square by square

My kids enjoy playing games and so I was excited to try Square by Square with them.
The game is one that teaches spatial relationships. Their are 14 puzzle pieces, 60 challenge cards, a game container with card drawer and a to go bag.
You simply choose a challenge card and try to arrange the pieces into that same picture. If you get stuck the back of the card offers two hints.

The game is aimed for ages 5& up. I have a 6 1/2 year old and a 4 year old. The 6 year old tried to complete a few of the pictures but gave up quickly. I guess it was too much thinking after an already long day at school.  she and her 4 year old brother instead seem to enjoy just creating their own patterns and pictures with the pieces. I think soon my daughter will try using the cards again. I'm sure with just a little guidance at first she'd get the hang of it.

Even though they aren't doing the challenges this game is still helping my kids think ahead and see how they can arrange/rearrange pieces to create, I love that it gets their brains thinking while still allowing them to be creative.

I am an adult and I enjoyed doing this game. It was fun to pick out a card and then work to arrange the pieces so it fit. I am the type that enjoys brain teasers and puzzles. So this game was perfect for me.  Some of the puzzles even have more than one correct solution.

Overall I am super pleased and recommend this game,

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Bics and Trics

Yesterday at the gym I worked my legs. That means squats (but only a few). Leg extensions, that is where you sit on a machine and lift your legs up under a bar. I did standing leg curls, that helps work the muscles on the back of you leg. And a few other things nothing to hard and not to much of one thing. 

Today I am going to be working on my Biceps and Triceps. For that you are working more with dumbbells or a few machines. What you want to do when you are pregnant is to do low weights but lots of sets. So lets says I can curl 15 lbs, 15 times and I do that 3 times and rest 30 seconds in between. Well now I am going to do 10 lbs 15 times, rest for 30 seconds and do that 5 times. When going to the gym writher you are pregnant or not its not always about doing the big weights, its about how many times you can do it. Then more you do the more you are taxing yourself. The better the results you will get. 

If you are anything like me and don't know what to do at the gym don't worry there are apps out there to help you along the way. I am just going to help keep myself in shape and to feel good. I don't really want to be a bodybuilder. 

Happy lifting!
