Bay Area Summer Camp for Pre-K to 5th Grade: Camp Galileo

I know a lot of my friends are already thinking about SUMMER CAMPS and what are they going to do with their kids this year.  I stay at home during the week so camp was my house but this year I want to do something different .  There are so many different camps out there but I'm really loving the Galileo Camps.  The offer a wide range of programs. 

Camp Galileo (Pre-K To 5th) Overview: 

Kids are naturally curious and creative. They’re into everything. But with time, some of that natural spirit of exploration can get sucked out of them. Gradually, a fear of mistakes and their consequences can start to grow.

CAMP GALILEO IS A PLACE WHERE FEAR GOES ON HOLIDAY. In its place grows a spirit of exploration and innovation. Every year, we see the experience fire campers’ imaginations and literally change their way of relating to learning.
Nebulas: pre-K to K
Stars: 1st and 2nd graders
Supernovas: 3rd to 5th graders

Every year, Galileo introduces rich, riveting new themes to inspire budding innovators. Each theme combines art, science and outdoor activities around a whimsical week-long narrative that’s crafted to keep kids giggling and engaged. This year features four fresh themes, each adapted for three different age groups. The themes are created together with Galileo’s fabulous curriculum partners at Klutz, The de Young Museum, The Tech Museum of Innovation and The Chabot Space & Science Center.

Medieval Adventure: Art and Innovations of Camelot
Hear ye, hear ye! Adventure awaits – in a land of castles, catapults and quests. Come unlock the secrets of medieval artisans and craftsmen. Create golden chalices, printed surcoats and a throne room fit for kings and queens. Engineer projectile-propelling inventions worthy of the noblest knights.

African Safari: Arts and Animals of the Serengeti
Embark on an epic safari adventure. Set off across the Savannah on the lookout for elusive animals. Investigate biomechanics and get under the skin of the continent’s wildest creatures. Find out how to move as quietly as a hippo, or how giraffes support their long necks. Create artwork inspired by Maasai beadwork, traditional batiks and your spectacular surroundings.

Galileo Amusement Park: Art and Science of Circuses, Rides and Carnivals
Step right up to the main event – a colorful carnival of your own design. Create spinning acrobats, circus wagons and arcade games. Attempt astonishing feats of engineering as you build a mini-speedway or your own roller coaster. Construct the most exhilarating expo the world has ever seen.

A break from school doesn't have to mean a break from learning. But it can be a challenge to fill those long summer weeks with camps and classes that are both educationally engaging for kids and convenient for parents. At Galileo, families can have it all. Galileo runs camps kids love from pre-K all the way through 8th grade—where they get engrossed in art projects, science challenges and outdoor activities that make them laugh, think and express themselves with complete freedom—all with the convenience of 38 Bay Area locations, optional extended care and healthy lunch. 

There is also camp for 5th–8th graders-Galileo Summer Quest.  Hurry because the classes are filling up FAST!  Click HERE for more info on these camps.

Want Clean Energy? Indiegogo Campaign for the Seebeck Effect

I had to look up what Thermoelectric meant and was impressed Seebeck Effect has been around for several hundred years but disappointed that this is not being used. 

From PRWEB Release~
Almost a year ago, several scientists came together to develop ways that would stop the rampant waste of energy that Global industry experiences. They explored the Seebeck Effect, which has been around since 1821, yet was only able to convert waste heat into small amounts of energy. During their research, the Seebeck team had a breakthrough in scaling-up existing technology, and quickly realized its potential to dramatically reduce power consumption, and in the process, significantly reduce greenhouse gasses. Seebeck Research has completed its initial planning and bench development. Their proprietary technology can take large amounts of wasted heat and converts it directly to non-polluting electricity. For example, Industrial plants that produce glass, steel, food, and just about every manufactured item (including recycling plants themselves), waste massive amounts of heat every day. This heat is released into the environment with little, to none being captured and used. Now, with Seebeck’s new technology, this wasted heat can be converted directly into electricity, that can dramatically reduce power consumption the need for the generation of additional energy. 

From Wikipedia: 
The Seebeck effect is the conversion of temperature differences directly into electricity and is named after the Baltic German physicist Thomas Johann Seebeck, who, in 1821 discovered that a compass needle would be deflected by a closed loop formed by two metals joined in two places, with a temperature difference between the junctions. This was because the metals responded differently to the temperature difference, creating a current loop and a magnetic field

Guess What? We can help with the clean energy movement by supporting the Seebeck Effect.  Please visit their campaign page at http://igg.me/at/seebeck . They need to build at least one full sized generator to measure the full effect. They have the team ready but just needs the funds. By contributing or sharing this information this is a way we can make a difference. Having pollution free electricity sounds real good to me and our future.

My 11 yr old wants to be GROWN-Sigh!

I'm having a hard time with it because he is still my baby boy but I know this is happening. This year he is in the 5th grade and just recently they had a puberty info class.   Ever since he has been pointing out things that he has been going through.  His voice is changing- I'll give him that, his body odor has changed- need to remind him to put deodorant on these days, his face is breaking out a bit, and there is more but I'll take his word for it.

He is obsessed with having hair though- really dude that is peach fuzz that everyone has.  He wants everyone to see the one black hair he has over his lip.  I still can't see it but his dad can.  This weekend I couldn't find my razor- wasn't in the bathroom anymore.  Weird.  Later that day I find it in the kitchen- WTF!  I knew exactly who to ask- my son.  He informed me he wanted more hair on his legs so he heard if you shaves the part of your body than the hair will grow back and more of it.  Insert ROLLING EYES when I heard his response. I let him know first not cool to use MY RAZOR- ewww but in nice mothering way!  Then I told him to please wait until this process happens and not to be in such a rush to grow up.  He thinks with his body changing that he will be able to do more grown up stuff- like what dude I ask.  He wants to be able to go places by himself- nope, we live in OAKLAND no roaming the streets yet! He is not ready.

I'm not trying to keep him a baby and I do give him more responsibilities than his sister BUT this is a process and no need to rush it! While his dad is away on training he has been the MAN OF THE HOUSE in a way- the first couple days he was playing the part to the tee but this weekend anything and everything I asked his response was "I'll do it later" which really means~ "I'll forget and then my mom will do it."

So not looking forward to the next couple years and his growing pains- however I'm sure this will be easier than when my Lil Mama gets to this age- that I'm not looking forward too!

The Voice~ My Favorite Battle Go TEAM USHER!

Oh My Goodness~ they sung "Ain't No Sunshine" and they ROCKED IT!  I was acting like I was right there in the audience. They both did a fabulous job- so soulful!  Usher was so proud and it looked like it was a very difficult choice but THANKS to Adam they both are still in the competition! Wonder who will be my favorite this week!

REVIEW: Tops Office Products- Notebooks, Journal, and Legal Pad

I was in Heaven when I opened this box!  As a blogger I love notebooks and items that help me stay organized.  I shared the notebooks though- my hubby had training in Canada so he took a couple of them to try out as well.  Thanks Shoplet for the opportunity to reviews these awesome products.  Shoplet.com can fulfill all your office supplies and promotional products

My Review: My husband is using this for keeping track of his expenses/receipts for his mileage/food expenses.  He loves how it fits in backpack side pocket so it's easy access for him.  He says it makes him look professional too.  He loves the expandable envelope for his receipts.  He already is talking about getting  another one.  This product sells for $5.83- very reasonable.  This product comes in handy when you do need to keep track of expenses. 

Tops Idea Collective Notebook:  Item #TOP56879
From Site: Premium details include smooth cream paper with easy-writing wide rules and luxurious yet durable covers. Pad Type: Notebook Sheet Size: 10" x 7 1/2" Ruling: Wide.

My Review:  This notebook is so nice I'm using it for my family memories.  The paper is smooth and the pen just flows on it so nice.  I gave one to my friend to start her WRITING BOOK project.  This notebook is durable and professional looking.  My friend loves it and says she keeps the notebook by her bed and takes it work now.  This is notebook we will be keeping for a long time.  This product sells for $12.02 for 2 pack.  Worth it! 

Cornell Note Taking System Legal Pad #TOP77103

From Site: Cornell note taking system provides the user with a clear, concise way to take notes. Perforated sheets for a clean tear every time. This product was made from wood that came from a certified managed forest.

LOVE LOVE this notebook.  My hubby has the smaller size and he said it helped him a lot when he had to take notes at his training.   I actually felt like I was getting stuff done because I was writing a to do list every morning last week.  This notebook kept me organized and productive!  This product is $2.55 per pad- Worth it!

Massdrop Keurig Giveaway~ ends 5/14

PinkMama's Place is excited to join Adventures of 8 and Blog with Mom in a new Advertise with Bloggers Event!

One lucky reader will WIN a Keruig from our friends at Massdrop, the newest way to buy online and save money!
Let me tell you a bit about Massdrop and how you can use this new site to save you MONEY!!! This is unlike any site I have seen before, as it works off of 'group buys' to offer the lowest price and YOU can vote for items you would like to have brought to Massdrop!
Here is how it works - let's say you have always wanted a Keurig B60 Single-Cup Home-Brewing System, but didn't want to pay the high department store price, nor did you want to purchase a refurbished one. What you would do is VOTE to bring the Keurig B60 Single-Cup Home-Brewing System to Massdrop, then once the poll option gets at least 200 votes, they negotiate bulk pricing with the supplier and pass them on to the Massdrop community.
This is where it gets really cool; THE MORE PEOPLE THAT PURCHASE the product, the lower the price!!!
Basically, the sale goes on for seven days, it starts at a certain price and as more people purchase the item the lower the price goes, with up to 3 price drops unlocking until the lowest price available is offered... and in the end you will only be billed for the lowest price; cool, right? The funny thing is that when the community worked together for their first Keurig B60 group-buy, they cleared out all of North American inventory in just a few days.
Oh and a really neat thing is that if you don't see a product that you want, as a community member, you can create a product poll for anything from coffee makers cards to homebrew beer kits.

Go sign up for Massdrop now to see how awesome this site is, then come enter to win a BRAND NEW Keurig B60 Single-Cup Home-Brewing System!

    So Proud of My Husband!

    Today marks an end of the BULLS**T my husband has had to endure at his job, actually the department he has been working in for the past several years.  He loves the company he works for but the department head has had it in for my husband since the first day they met.  I won't get in the details but let's just say my husband has been treated disrespectfully and down right wrong for the past 6 years.

    My husband gets up every Monday through Friday before it is even light out and makes his way to his job. The moment he walks in that door he is ready to work.  He does that for his family.  If he didn't have us he would have left this job a long time ago because of the way he has been treated.  He has been degraded, ignored, and treated like he is nothing from his superior.  Last year got real bad and my husband started bringing that crap home.  We were all stressed out and it was making life at home difficult.  I told him if things don't change he needed to leave this job because it's not doing him or us any good.  No job is worth losing your self worth ( I need to follow my own advice- that's another blog post, lol)

    Then late last year the company was bought and things started to change.  People in charge were now noticing the work my husband was doing and wanting to know more about him.  Attitudes were changing drastically and there was more communication going on that was encouraging.  Then big news happen that they were going to open a new department.  Everyone was telling my husband that he needed to apply for the position but he didn't want to at first because his self esteem was so low he didn't want to put himself through applying and being told he was not capable of the job AGAIN.  He has applied for other positions over the years and it was his supervisor that was always doing the hiring so he never got any of the positions. His supervisor didn't want him to grow and basically shut him out of everything positive.  Then he got word that his supervisor won't be the one hiring and my hubby jumped on the chance with a lot of support from co-workers and applied!

    His interview went awesome and I could tell his confidence was growing.  Guess what he got the position, a LEAD position  Everyone around him was so proud and told him he deserved it- which he did!  His supervisor still hasn't congratulated him and actually made his last week there suck.  But he now can leave this department that has suffocated him for years and rise up to be that confident man he is meant to be! This position is a life changer for us is so many ways.  First, it came with a BIG TIME raise.  He won't be held down anymore and that is the best thing because that was slowing killing my husband's moral.  We knew this year something had to change and thank goodness it changed the way it did.

    Bad thing is he has to leave us for 3 weeks to train but we will get through this and look forward to what this year will bring!

    My Little Girl Turns "9" This Week

    Oh my where as the time went!  Sahara turns 9 in less then a week and I can't believe it.  She has been my shinning light ever since she was born.  She keeps me going every day that's for sure.

    The day she was born was very emotional for all of us.  It was a planned C-section so we knew when she was coming but we didn't know she would be born with two extreme clubfeet.  The first day of her life she was put in casts- from top of legs to her toes.  This was very emotional and we had no idea what to expect. The Dr told us she might not walk because of how extreme her feet were turned in.  So the next 2-3 years were a lot of casting, couple surgeries, a lot of Dr Appt's, braces, and a lot of tears.  We do physical therapy now. Today she still has a bit of a pigeon toe run and can't put down one of her feet all the way but she is not letting anything stop her.  So proud of her and her determination.

    She loves to DANCE~

    I'm so proud of my almost 9 year old she ROCKS and I'm looking forward to what she is going to do in the years to come.

    Smiley360 Mission: Children’s Mucinex® Multi-Symptom Cold liquid- ROCKS!

    Join Smiley360 to get products like this TRY!

    My Review~  We probably won't buy anything else but Mucinex from now on!  My husband and I have had the adult version and love it.  When Smiley360 sent me this to review I was so thrilled because my daughter was coming down with that NASTY COLD everyone was getting.  This cold that was going around was knocking people down for days.  Lil Mama she doesn't do well with being sick because that means she has to rest and STOP whatever 100 projects she is doing.  We gave her the medicine at bedtime- I had her stay home the next day and by that evening she was back to our little whirlwind.  Her runny nose stopped, her cough was just a little tickle (her words) and thank goodness nothing was going on in her chest!  I will be buying this product from now on!
