read across america day EVERY day of the year

It's Read Across America Day! Only something that everyone's been talking about for days and days and days and days now, but don't worry if you're already in your pj's or missed the boat altogether.

Don't worry if this is the very first time you're hearing about it and now you feel like you're the only kid not invited to the party. TO-tally not so! Everyone's invited to this bash--no matter who you are, where you are, or what you read.

Read Across America Day is a simply the day that marks the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Read Across America Day has kids all over the country reading Seuss, rhyming, watching Cat in the Hat and The Lorax videos, and wearing a whole lot of red and white stripes to school. And Read Across America Day kicks off THE reading month: March.

how to play bunco with FAMILIES

On an off for years now, we've played Bunco with our family.

At family gatherings, after the little ones had gone to bed, the adults rocked out a little Bunco fun.

Complete with crazy prizes a la our fun Bingo bonanza, the adults laughed and rolled dice and played Bunco late into the night.

Now that Maddy, Owen, and Cora are older, though, we've introduced them to the fun of Bunco.

Bunco is a simple dice-rolling game that leaves little to skill and all to chance. It's fun--and easy enough for families with mixed-age kids to play. There's counting and adding and a whole lot of mathy-math in the mix.

Any sneaky learning is a win in our book.

Here's the skinny. . .

best bunco game night snack ideas

I lied when I said that the best thing about Bunco was that it was an easy game to play while catching up with friends.


I lied.

It's not 100% true.

The best thing about Bunco is the snacks.

There. I said it.

Bunco snacks are awesome.

But if Bunco isn't your game and something else is--Scrabble? Phase 10? Pokeno? Yahtzee?--whatever it is, snacks are a fun part of game night.

And though I am kidding, I'm also kind of not kidding. We all need good snacks to round out a fun night with friends.

Here's the skinny. . .

how to play bunco: super fun gno (girls’ night out)

I started a Google contacts group called 'Bunco 2015' to make sending emails easier.

And then I used VolunteerSpot as our sign-up. On VolunteerSpot, I made Bunco 2015 a group page with an event every month from February through June. Each month, I made three sign-ups for appetizers; one sign-up for host; and unlimited for players.

The cool thing about VolunteerSpot is that the hosts for each month can add a comment with their address, no one has to send out evites or multiple emails, and we can all share the link to invite other friends.

After we had our group, I started to gather supplies.

Everything Tooth Fairy

Posted on February 9, 2009 at 7:52pm 0 Comments

“We better hope that the tooth fairy comes to Matthew and Seth’s house tonight and puts some new teeth back into Seth’s mouth, right Mommy?” Owen mumbled, glancing up at me, his mouth full of Cheerios. Milk was dripping towards his chin.

The buzz of my every morning halted—I froze mid-way through buttering waffles, pouring orange juice, and packing lunch. I focused on the spot of milk that was caught in the dimple in Owen’s chin, as I said in slow motion, “Yes, I guess so,… Continue
