I’m going to be collaborating with Dutch Wonderland in Pennsylvania for a travel feature on my blog later this summer, so I’m excited for that. If you’re going there, here is a link for a discount especially for my blog readers. The promo code is MamaMuseMeSBlog16.
For a short list of what I’m loving so far this summer, it would have to be the new Mandisa “Out of the Dark” album that leaves me in such a joyful mood, really neat looking temporary tattoos from tattly.com that I plan on wearing all summer, and my new Keen hiking shoes that are working out great on the trails.
I just finished reading The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close, and I thought it was a great fictional peek at Washington, D.C. I took a little day trip to the Spy Museum in D.C. and bought the book not long after that. My family is going full throttle at summer already, with an outdoor concert and a beautiful day at the lake already checked off the bucket list.
Hope your summer is off to a fun start too! If you’re curious about the Mandisa album, you can listen to most of it on YouTube right now.
I am checking out Positive Discipline: Tools for Teachers by Jane Nelsen and Kelly Gfroerer, sent to me by Blogging for Books in return for my honest review. It has tips for modeling kind and firm leadership in the classroom, keeping students intrinsically motivated (very important), improving self-regulation, and more. I have heard most of this in my education classes and trainings, but it’s good to have a refresher.
