GPALOVEMATH is a really neat web-based program for children in grades K-5. They have animated characters that act as coaches through each lesson. These characters offer supplemental help with over 150 lessons and over 10,000 problems of practice. You can complete a grade in 10 months if you work on 4 – 5 lessons a week. It also uses a reward system for the child’s effort.
One of the things we love around this time of year is the Shamrock Shakes. I can no longer have them as they are way to many points for me to give up on Weight Watchers. I would rather eat something more filling. My kids on the other hand absolutely love ice cream. Over the weekend we decided to make our own homemade Shamrock Shakes.
The family said they actually liked them and wanted to try different flavors in the future. They also really like these better then McDonald’s. They are so very simple to make. We used two ingredients!

Claude Monet was an Impressionist painter and a man who loved his garden. He loved painting nature. Some of the things he painted was the river Seine, the Thames, and his own garden. He repeatedly painted things but they were never exactly the same. The reason for this was that he looked for difference in light and the time of day.
