Bloggy Crush: Natalie Creates

 Bloggy Crush: Natalie Creates  via Blissful & Domestic

So ladies..what is up?! It is late, I am watching Master Chef (I still haven't caught up on my episodes, so don't tell me who won yet) and I started thinking about all the fun blogs I love to visit and how I haven't shared any with you recently. It has been like forever and a day, since I have shared one of my bloggy crushes! Lately I have been crushing on quite a few blogs. I can't wait to share them with you over the next few weeks. For me, I want to read a blog that gives me a bit of daily inspiration. I love being reminded to appreciate the small things and to find beauty in the little moments we have each day. This is why I love Natalie Creates. I love the beautiful farm photography she shares and all her tips for eating fresh, healthy meals. She also shares how she feeds her family on a budget, how she decorates on a budget (love that thrifty style of hers!), and she shares yummy recipes. She is a sweet newlywed red head (love her hair) who is sharing her journey as a wife, farmer, and follower of Christ. I love the daily beauty she shares on her blog. It inspires me to snap more pictures and appreciate all that God has given me. Thank you Natalie for always being such a sweetheart on your blog and reminding me how we can create beauty everyday without spending a penny. You rock Natalie!!

Homeschool Diaries: Fire-Resistant Balloons Science Experiment

Homeschool Diaries: Fire-Resistant  Balloons


Good Morning Lovelies! I am back with another experiment that I found over at Joann's blog. We did this one with some friends from our Homeschool Co-op. They came over for an afternoon of science fun!

When I was looking on Joann's Blog and came upon the Fire-Resistant balloons, I was skeptical. How could a balloon be placed under a flame and not pop? Well we were going to find out.

I had the kids each blow up a balloon. The Moms helped tie the balloons. The kids then each took a turn holding their balloons over the flame. We all predicated they would pop. The kids loved hearing that loud pop. They liked it so much, we let them do another round of air filled balloons :)

Next, we tried balloons filled with a bit of water. I filled it from the sink and then tied my balloon. It was amazing to see how the balloon didn't pop! I was quite impressed with this experiment. The kids were too! We were able to talk to the kids about the soot on the outside of the balloon and where it came from. We also talked about why the balloon didn't pop (I have included the reason behind this experiment below). I love doing hands on experiments with my littles. I swear I am learning just as much as they are! It is so fun to experience new things and learn together!

This is such a fun experiment and it only takes a few items you probably have around your house! I hope you get the chance to do something fun with your kids today. Try an experiment or two! You will have so much fun!

Homeschool Diaries: Fire-Resistant  Balloons


Taken directly from the Steven Spangler website, here is the explanation of this experiment:

How Does it Work?

"Water is a great substance for soaking up heat.  The thin balloon allows the heat to pass through very quickly and warm the water.  As the water closest to the flame heats up, it begins to rise and cooler water replaces it at the bottom of the balloon. This cooler water then soaks up more heat and the process repeats itself. In fact, the exchange of water happens so often that it keeps the balloon from ever popping! The soot on the bottom of the balloon is actually carbon.  The carbon was deposited on the balloon by the flame, and the balloon remains undamaged." -Steven Spangler 

So Cool right? Try it out with your munchkins this week. They will love it!

Homeschool Diaries: Field Trip to the Bellagio Gardens

I am short on words today and sleep...probably because I stayed up late last night watching Call the Midwife. My Mom has been trying to get me to watch it for a while and I finally sat down and did. I am addicted! I love every single thing about it! BBC has done it again and made me fall in love with the characters, the show, the writers, you name it and I love it! Since I was up way too late watching season 2, I am sharing a field trip we took a few weeks ago. The kids and I were able to go on a tour of The Bellagio Gardens with our homeschool group. It was a great way to start the school year. This place is amazing! If you ever come to Las Vegas, go to the Bellagio. It is free to go into the Gardens and absolutely breath taking! They change out the flowers every season and a new display takes its' place. Currently they have beautiful summer flowers, from around the world. So while I catch up on a bit of sleep, I leave you with a picture overload....your welcome:) I hope your day is a fantastic one!
