I have to have a Star Wars read aloud to finish off our May the 4th be with you week! This reading brought me so much joy and peace! Sit down and enjoy a few moments of being read to!
To Be A Drum is written by Evelyn Coleman, illustrated by Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson and read by James Earl Jones.
Daddy Wes whispers to his two young listeners one morning the story of the 'drum,' the pulse that has moved through the African people and through time and place.

So, I got ahead of myself! We did what we call a "Switch a roo who hoo". Tuesday and Thursday Let's go to INFINITY and BEYOND today! Today, grab those light sabers you made and play or "fight" along as we travel from Star Wars 1977 to Stars Wars 2018! This brought musical joy to my world today!
WHAT if we could drive the Millennium Falcon? Has anyone here had the chance! We were able to fly it last summer...I'm SERIOUS! It was awesome! Now, I have to say I didn't fly it, Charlie did! However, I helped by Lazor-ing the enemy space ships! Jump on our ship and take off! It's VIRTUAL! However, WHAT IF it was possible...FOR REAL! Would it be like this?
Build your own! Lightsaber! This was a rabbit hole, jedi's! There are so many tutorials out there! I only have cardboard and tape...so be prepared for a very simple lightsaber! But you make yours! Here's an out of this world tutorial! ENJOY and KEEP Building!
I know it's suppose to be Mystery Monday; however, I couldn't resist doing something STAR WARS related! Today, take a computer science break and CODE a Star Wars video game!
Anyone lost a tooth over quarantine? Was the tooth fairy able to make it? Well, here's a terrific story about the Tooth Fairy C.E.O. :

Today, it's raining where we are! We can't go to the playground even if it was nice out! However, we are thankful that we are able to be home and healthy and doing are part! However, we do have lots of cardboard around our home! The kids miss the park...and SO we decided to ask the question...do we have the tools to build an INDOOR cardboard slide! Do you have tape? Pillows? Cardboard? And maybe a bike helmet just in case ;)! Then I think the answer is yes! If you don't have enough cardboard, build one for your stuffed animal or lego character! Start building! Don't forget to share your videos and/or photos! Here are the instructions:
This one is a crazy one! WHAT if you were swallowed by a whale? Now, you might find this question as a random question; however, in our house we have Disney movie nights! Pinocchio came up as an option, which, you can guess it...led to the question: Could you really be swallowed by a whale and survive? We weren't the first to ask this WHAT IF question. James Bartley claims to have been survived just this! Tap on the link and see if it's possible!
Where to go today? Well, it's actually a beautiful day outside and I am happy to stay at home and be outside! YAHOO! However, on those days that the clouds set in and rain prevents us from going outside...head to a National Park! Last summer, we went to Yosemite and enjoyed every moment! Tell me your favorite part of the park!
Lately, we have been noticing a lot of wildlife outside of our home! As a matter a fact, today, we discovered a bunny nest in our front yard! I guess that means no whiffle ball practice for awhile! This made us wonder why do bunnies/birds and many other animals have babies in the spring? Well, we looked no further than Mystery Doug for our answer! The photos are of our home and the babies that are being born! Click on the button below to discover: Why do birds lay eggs in the spring?
