Adventures with Thomas {Giveaway}


Shari from Knit Wit by Shair shares her adventures with boys and Thomas… I have 3 little boys, and while they all like playing together and being together, they each have different personalities.

Kids Need the Opportunity to Express Themselves! {Giveaway}


Kids Need the Opportunity to Express Themselves! Giving your children the opportunity to express themselves in a variety of ways is very important to their growth and personal development.
