New Star Wars Exhibit Debuts At LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta!

My family and I recently had the opportunity to visit LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta to see the new Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace MINILAND attraction. This new addition is located in the same area as last year's Ninjago Laser Maze, and though it is small, it is packed with Force-filled fun. 

I'm only going to share a couple of pictures because I don't want to spoil the fun for any of my fellow Star Wars fans. Take a peek and let me know what you think about this new addition!

Spring FUN Break Is Back At Stone Mountain Park - Win 4 Adventure Passes!

Stone Mountain Park is one of my family's favorite places to explore in the Atlanta area. The hike up to the top totally pays off with incredible panorama views of the city and suburbs. Or -- if you're like my family most days -- you can choose to take Summit Skyride to the top and save some energy for all of the other fun activities that this beloved Atlanta attraction has to offer.

But That's Not Why We Homeschool!

"There are some great Christian schools in the area!"  

"Oh, so what are your thoughts on the Common Core?" 

"How do you find time to do real work?" 

"Why aren't you in school?" (said directly to my daughter) 

I get it. Sending a child to "school" with all of the other children in a community is as normal as putting butter on EVERYthing here in the South. It's what is expected. To stray from the public school model in any direction - private school, Christian school, charter schools - is just weird.

Have Courage, Be Kind, And Take Your Daughter To Watch Disney's #Cinderella!

Have courage and be kind.

Simple words. Wise words. And something that I strive to instill in my daughter -- and myself.

Should you take your child to watch Disney's Cinderella? | Read an Atlanta Mom Blogger's review on the Classic Mommy blog

Disney's new live-action Cinderella movie explores the classic fairytale in an extravagant and truly beautiful way. While the costumes, setting and other visual aspects of the film were absolutely stunning, the real beauty came from how Disney honored the beloved tale by staying fairly close to the original animated feature.

Should you take your child to watch the new Cinderella movie? YES! You should also take your mother, your sister, your husband, your best friend... it really is a remarkable movie.

Danger and I left the theater feeling extremely touched by the story. I won't give away any spoilers, except to say that this is one happily ever after that left us wanting to watch even more of Cinderella's story -- a win for Disney, and a win for girls everywhere. 

Have you watched the new Cinderella movie? What was your favorite part? 

p.s. Check out my darling Cinderella!

Moms Are Unbreakable, Too. #StreamTeam

Netflix has introduced a new series called Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, starring some of my favorite comedic personalities, like Ellie Kemper (The Office), Jane Krakowski (30 Rock) and Tituss Burgess (30 Rock). I just love this quote from the series trailer because I feel like it especially applies to rookie parents - and perhaps even more especially, sleep-deprived rookie parents
