Happy Math & Music Monday!

Wow! What a week last week. I don’t know about you, but last week felt like a VERY

LONG WEEK! I don’t mean all bad, just long and with a lot that happened. I was so

grateful for our Math and Music activities to keep us distracted, learning, and

moving forward. This is a new week, and for most of us the start of an unexpected

new normal… for at least a little bit. As you know, I’m a person who always works to

find the positive of every situation. But before I take us there, I want to make sure

you all know that I am thinking and praying for you all! We can do this! We can get

through this together! It won’t always be easy, but we can do this!

Fun Quote

“Be strong because things will get better. It may be stormy now, but it never rains forever.” -Anonymous

Isn’t this a beautiful quote? I just love it. It’s the perfect quote for this week’s blog.  Right now, it feels a little like we’re in a storm, but it will get better and this won’t last forever. Together we can do this!

Right now, I know we’re all practicing our best social distancing skills, but I think it’s

so important to make sure that even though we can’t physically all be together that we make sure and “be together” in other ways. I have found that what really helps

us is to pick up the phone and call people. Use tools like Facetime or Zoom. Use

apps like Marco/Polo. This way we can all stay connected without sharing our

germs. It has really helped us as a family connect with friends, family, and even our

Math and Music community. I encourage you to check out these tools. As always,

we would love to hear what you’re using to stay connected!

Right now, my goal is to add value to others’ lives any way that I can. I hope that you will take this opportunity to sign up for the FREE two-week trial on our website

( This is exactly what our program is designed for… families at home with young children needing/looking for meaningful activities to do together.

Families looking for new and fun ways to break up the day! I hope you’ll go check it out. We also have some exciting things in the works… so be sure to watch your email and our social media channels for more information on those.

Please feel free to reach out! I would love to help any way that I can. Please feel free to email or message me with ANY questions or concerns!

As always…we do have some SUPER Fun things planned this week! Be sure to follow us this week on our Facebook Page and Instagram! You won’t want to miss it. We have a fun NEW Joke on Tuesday for “Tell A Joke Tuesday!” A super fun “Projects with Pais on Wednesday” and a really yummy one on Saturday for “Cooking with K!” PLUS lots more in between!
