ABC Reading Eggs can travel!

590CB847-6E96-4113-AA41-AE7866E06CC0


We moved to New Zealand for a few years and I needed something to help my kids with their reading. Two of my kids were struggling and really starting to resent reading time, so I knew had to change something. I did not know how to help my three girls with their reading as much as I would have liked to, as I am not a teacher. 

We are now back in Australia. My six-year-old has completed the Fast Phonics program and it has really helped her progress with figuring words out. All three girls have come back into the Australian schools as competent readers for their age - thank you ABC Reading Eggs! 

Being able to have access for up to 4 kids on one subscription is great, as I was able to have all three of my girls set up. I loved the portability of ABC Reading Eggs as we could use this on long car trips, on different devices, in Covid-19 lockdowns, on holidays and even in different countries! My sister is a school teacher and she supported my use of this program as a fantastic way to teach kids to read. Now we are back in Australia the older girls' school classes are using the ABC Reading Eggspress program for their comprehension tasks. My Kindergarten girl uses ABC Reading Eggs and Mathseeds in class and for homework which made the transition much easier. There is a great selection of books and readers to read as well - which is especially useful for my kinder girl.

Sand free beach towels

bohemian-TFT_0005_DSC06825

Wet. Heavy. Sandy. Those three words define the regular beach towel.  Tesalate are the experts in textile innovation. The Absorblite™ fabric tech is engineered to revolutionize the beach towel as you know it.

I was fotunate enough to review a Tesalate towel and I loved it so much that I also bought another one. They are not that cheap but definately worth it. Sand free towels are a must for the beach. 

My only problem was choosing the design as I loved them all. 

Sand free - just shake off the sand - it is so easy. 

One of the towels I chose was the Bora Bora - a towel for 2 - the size of a picnic rug. The size is perfect. 

 

 

The other design I chose was  The Alchemist. 

 

 

I love the size it folds down to as well - I can't believe how small a picnic sized towel folds to.

Turtle Discovery Catseye Beach

Turtle-Discovery_DSC_1136

We recently went to Hamilton Island and we were fortunate to see and see a whole variety of marine life - including turtles, on a Turtle Discovery tour. 

My two eldest sons and myself put on our snorkles and went out with guides standing on paddle boards. The guides on paddleboards were spotting for turles and when they found them they signalled to us and we all hurried over.

The excitement we all felt when we spotted our first turle was amazing as we hurried across to the next turtle that had been cited. 

We saw 6 large turtles which made for a fantastic tour. 

We saw some coral formations and tropical fish and colourful coral structures which I was not expecting to see off Hamilton Island's Catseye Beach. I enjoyed this so much we didn't go out to the outer reef as we just enjoyed the snokelling at Catseye Beach.
