The Week Ahead for South Florida 2/26/15 Strawberries, colds, and potatoes.

I have a sick kid this week so it’s gonna be a short but sweet post. Just a cold, but those of you with kids with asthma know that I won’t sleep for a few days.  Someone may have to stop me from “facebooking while drowsy”.

We headed out to Bedner’s Farm on a schStrawberriesool field trip to pick strawberries, last week it was a great time.  If you are up for a trip to Bedner’s you can also try The Girls Strawberry Patch in Delray Beach.  It is a really cool little find and you would never know it was there if were just driving by.

We also planted some purple potatoes, I know this may have been a mistake as they don’t do well in the heat.  Yes, I know it was in the 30’s here this week, but the heat is coming back, so get ready for it!

Please check out my review of Gus on the Go A Language Learning Adventure Review and Giveaway.  It truly is the most educational App I have come across to date.  When I emailed the creators of this App to tell them how much I and my daughter love it, the graciously offered to give our readers a chance to win a download.

My Pick of the week is the Happy Dr Suess Event at the Boca Community Garden, it is free if you bring a donation of diapers for the Junior League Diaper Bank.

The Week Ahead for South Florida 3/20/14

Music for Munchkins

I hope you are all enjoying Spring Break as much as we are. (If you are lucky enough to have had it yet.)  We are still spending as much time outside as possible.  I know my friends up north are going to “unfriend” me if I keep going on about how nice it has been the last couple of weeks, but I figure we endure all the summer heat for this little bit of perfect weather we may as well shout about it!Seriously Ugly Home Grown Carrots

Our adventure in gardening took a strange turn this week.  It seems that our carrots were replaced with aliens!  I have scoured the internet for an ugly carrot contest, but to no avail.  We had a pretty good laugh over these.

I also thought I would share this petition.  I don’t normally place things like this on my site, however there has been quite an uproar over the policy change in Broward County.  Students with lice are now allowed to attend class instead of being banned until they are nit free.  Here is a link to a petition to reverse the policy if you are interested.  We all know that lice don’t actually do any horrible damage, but they sure are a pain (and expensive) to get rid of.

Ars Flores Symphony Orchestra Music for MunckinsMy pick for the week is the Music for Munchkins program offered in both Miami and Broward.  These are free kids orchestral performances where the kids are free to wiggle and giggle and learn about music.  We love this program, and my daughter enjoys it every time.  Click here for a quick review and picture of Music for Munchkins.  Our favorite was when they did parts of Peter and The Wolf.  This is an amazing educational, cultural opportunity tailor made for families!

We managed to get another review up for our series The Big Toy Box Review.  If you have a child you think might like the My Little Pony Train Set, take a moment to watch the video review.

Here is your quick list for the week,
