The Active Family Project-An Interview With Laura Fuentes

        Recently I was given the opportunity to interview a mother and business woman who is helping making strides in family togetherness. Laura Fuentes is a name that perhaps you have heard before. As founder and CEO of a company called MOMables she has devoted her life towards bring families together during meal time. MOMables is the first meal-planning service for healthy and fresh school lunches that children will love. Laura, like many moms, has a lot on her plate but that hasn’t deterred her from making sure her family makes time for healthy meals together as well as active playtime. As march draws to an end you may or may not have known that March is National Nutrition Month. Laura has teamed up with The Active Family Project to help families learn how to take back their playtime and mealtime. I hope you will take a moment to watch my interview with Laura below and make sure to scroll down to get more information on how your family can take back their time.

You can find out more about Laura Fuentes on her blog the Superglue Mom. Plus don't forget to check out MOMables to help find great ideas that can help your family get their time together back. Nothing is more important then time as a family.

Saving Shelter Pets- Flash(Levelland, Texas)

      Flash is an adult male Chihuahua mix. He is larger than a pure-bred Chihuahua at around 15 lbs. but would still make a great lap-dog. We think he is 3 to 4 years old, has a mellow personality, and enjoys walking on a leash. He took a long walk with Cruz this morning. There was a little growling, but nothing serious. That's pretty good for two male Chihuahuas who didn't know each other. He should be good with just about any other dog and he likes people. He enjoys being held and petted. He should be ready to fit into just about any home situation. He's a small, but not tiny, dog, still young, with none of the problems that come with a puppy. He is available for adoption now.
      If you think Flash might make a good addition to your household, or would like more information, please call one of the numbers below.
 
     NOTE: Our dogs are now vaccinated for all common illnesses, except rabies, before they are released for adoption. We welcome fosters and adoptions out of state. There is no adoption fee in Levelland but you are require to have him neutered within 30 days.

Learning About Bugs- My Bug Jar

     The great thing about young kids is their excitement for everything around them. Recently My Girl Scout troop and I have been studying the environment around us. I remembered as a little girl going on bug hunts, so when I had the opportunity to review the My Bug Jar kits from Oriental Trading I was so excited to get to share them with not only my troop but my kids as well :).
 
     I love Oriental Trading's craft projects for so many reasons. They always come with great step by step directions, extra pieces(because lets face it when you are working with little kids sometimes they get lost), and many of the craft projects there are no extra supplies required. This craft does require a glue gun or other source of glue in order to complete. To find this craft or other ideas and supplies to add a little bug life to yours, you can find them HERE.

*I received the above product in order to help conduct this review, regardless all views expressed are those of my own and were in no way influenced.**
