Minecraft for Dummies Series Books Giveaway 11/11

9781118537145 cover.indd

This is Markus Persson. He is the Swedish video game programmer and designer responsible for my kids spending hours on my lap top playing a little game called Minecraft. Now I know who to blame and I thought you guys might like to know too! ;) To say Minecraft is a craze is an understatement! James needed a new lap top for school, but like many other kids, he spends a much more time playing Minecraft compared to using the lap top for school work. He has a fancy "gaming mouse" too, of … {Read More}

I received the above products from Smith Bros to facilitate this review and host this giveaway. Opinions expressed are my own. I've been working at Ryan's elementary school since September. I love that I am getting out of the house, working with kids, and the hours (only about 3 each day) are wonderful -no need for childcare. I still have plenty of time to keep up with my blog too.

Ryan had a friend over last week after school. When I went outside to check on them, they were doing this...... They were catching the rain drops that fell (from when it rained earlier) from the bottom of the roof of the garage.  They would let their mouths fill up with drips and then run around the side of the house to spit out their collection. Boys will be boys. An InLinkz Link-up … {Read More}
