When I was in middle school, I did not care about school at all. In fact, I almost flunked out of 8th grade math. That mentality stayed with me all throughout that year and I also carried with me into my first year of high school. I remember sitting in that Intro to Algebra 1 class thinking — “I hate school. I hate math. Why do I even need to be here?”. It was then, that my math teacher — Susan Scott– saw something in me that I did not see in myself, and she pushed me to do better, to be better – to try to succeed. It is because of her that I learned to love math and found myself making straight A’s in her class. Yes — teachers change lives.
I just finished watching a cute 38 minute short film created by Disney about Blank — a white Vinylmation character who falls in love with Bow — another white Vinylmation character. After watching the film, I have a few thoughts I wanted to share with you on love, being different, and learning to love yourself.
I can remember when my children were little. Amazing playdates for them would be to pack a picnic lunch and head out to the nearest zoo, or head to the lake for fishing fun. Now that they are much older — 18 and 15 — those playdates are few and far between. So what makes for an epic playdate these days for a teenager?
My son has been driving now for 2 years. When he first started, I prayed that he would be a safe driver. My husband and I taught him many things that we were concerned about. I hoped and prayed that those teachings would stick when he finally got to venture out on his own. Only time would tell if it would.

We are always on the go here at the Sikora household. My hubby and son are usually out the door by 7:00 o’clock in the morning, and when I wake up, I hit the ground running. With that being the case, we always try to have quick and yummy breakfast foods that can be eaten on the go. Here are my favorite 5 quick breakfast foods for families on the go.
