Learning to read with the Kindle HD

Amazon Kindle Fire HD (B00CTV5OIG) Tablet/e-Reader, 1.5GHz Dual-Core CPU, 1GB RAM, 8 GB HDD
My oldest boy is starting grade one this year and with it comes a lot of firsts for our family.  Not only will he be starting full days of school(man will we miss him!!)  but he will be starting on his real learning journey and the starting point will be learning to read!
I am so excited for him as he has started to recognize and learn his letter sounds and has just started to try to put letter sounds together to form those simple beginning words.  He is so eager to read especially to read his little brothers and now baby sister their bedtime stories and he gets so excited when he has memorized a book and thinks he is reading it to them.  I just cant wait till he can really read and be excited to start his own journeys and adventures with the pages of a book..

Back to School with Campus Book Rentals


Well back to school time is upon us again and so I thought I would remind my wonderful post secondary attending readers and their parents about the great program the Campus Book rental has where you can rent your text books instead of having to put all that money down on buying them.  I know I now have text books sitting in a box that have never seen the light of day since the last day of school What a huge waste!!  I wish I had a program like this when I was needing to get my books!

Keep Cool with the Kulcar by Sonray

Kulcar
Here in Calgary it gets HOT in the summer months. Hot to the point that I often forget my winter promise that I will never complain about the heat again, if only the snow would melt!!
This summer is especially taking a toll on me as I am now 8+ months pregnant and NOT enjoying the heat in any way!!
