Little man is about to finish second grade. Word on the street is that third grade is when things start to get real. There is a big jump for the kids in terms of academics, standardized testing and homework. I’ve also heard that third grade is when it is common for kids to start communicating electronically. Sending emails and texts, using iMessenger, stuff like that.

I’m not sure I’m ready for all of this!

My kids currently have wi-fi connected iPads, which they use to play games, watch pre-downloaded movies, and to watch videos on YouTube. We do not allow games that offer the option to play against real people, or communicate with others out in cyberspace. We carefully monitor what they watch on YouTube.

Let’s face it, a long flight with a young one is not anyone’s favorite part of a trip. A means to an end, yes, but I know that my kids are a total crapshoot when it comes to enjoying a long flight. Sometimes they will hunker down with their headphones, giving you hours to relax. But when the boredom (or hunger) sets in, it is best to be prepared!

This post is essential for anyone from CEOs to those of us leading the PTA! Plus, blogging is so collaborative, I know most of us bloggers can apply these tips!

 

Project Managers need to have a specific set of skills to be successful, using a software like Steelray Project Viewer is key to successfully managing projects, budgets, and timelines.

A project manager is the point person within a company who handles the intricate details of a particular job. Typically they oversee large-scale projects with a diverse task force, a sizeable budget, the constraints of quick timelines, and compounding assignments. Since project managers juggle so many things at one time, they need to nimble, organized, and approachable.

 

Here are six tips to be successful as a project manager:

There are so many things to love about Italy. The coffee, the food, the historic sights… but one of my favorites, is the wine! I love Prosecco, a cold white wine on the piazza, or a deep red with a big bowl of pasta. Yes, only in Italy can I tolerate … no enjoy, red wine.

So when our awesome agents at Exclusively Italy arranged for us a vineyard tour and wine tasting, I knew this was going to be a highlight of our trip!

Last summer, we spent two weeks on the Big Island of Hawaii. We did so many awesome things, I had to break my MUST-DO post into two segments. Last week, I posted about the Best Big Island Beaches, and today I am writing about the other activities you don’t want to miss if you are traveling to the Big Island!

Happy May everyone! The end of April has me super excited because I hit OVER 1500 page views for the month, way exceeding my goal of 1000! Almost doubling my March numbers! I have been putting in a lot more time to my site and am super proud of some of my April posts such as A Day in Verona, the Best Big Island Beaches and a review of our trip to The Museum of Mathematics! I also wrote my first guest post for 101 Food Travel, an article about the amazing cooking class we took in Northern Italy. You can read that here.

So I guess my favorite thing this month was my readers (that’s you!) but I still have an actual list of Stuff I have been loving this month.

It’s been over six months since we have traveled to Hawaii and not a day goes by where we don’t talk about that trip! It was truly amazing in every way you dream about a 3-week trip to this magical state.

A vacation to Hawaii took a lot of planning and I wanted to get the most out of our time on each island. I am so indebted to all the great blogs I read (check out my Hawaii Pinterest board for all things Aloha) and as always to Fodor’s Hawaii  for helping me plan our activities. I am so excited to share our best tips and help other folks plan their awesome Hawaiian adventures! Since launching this site, I have written about the best Maui activities, and a great itinerary if you are traveling the Road to Hana. Today I give you the best beaches on the Big Island.

This spring, my kids had quite the long spring break – 7 days off of school! I’m not going to lie, I looked into going back to Naples or Orlando, but the flights were so astronomical.We had an overnight planned but the remaining days we spent close to home, a stay-cation if you will. I had planned out several activities that I knew my kids would like (and wrote about them here). On the last day of vacation, we planned a day trip to Manhattan to see dad’s office, have a fancy lunch and to visit the Museum of Mathematics.
