Family vacations have always been fun. Individuals have many options for planning their vacation, with a one-week stay at a timeshare costing an average of $21,455. While the perfect getaway involves more than just finding an affordable flight and hotel, it can be a great idea for a vacation to have a smaller environmental footprint. Luckily, there are plenty of simple things you can do or avoid doing to make sure your family's vacation is eco-friendly. Here are some easy ideas to get you started:
Stay In an Eco-Friendly Hotel
Staying in an eco-friendly hotel can help cut your family's carbon footprint on vacation. Ask the front desk if the hotel has a policy for reducing energy usage (such as turning off all unused lights and electronic equipment) and request a room with 'green' features, such as a shower instead of a bathtub. Make sure you unplug all unused electrical devices when leaving the room for the day.
If you are not sure where to find such hotels, you can use any search engine on your phone to assist you in the search. A good number of consumers, around 48%, use a search engine to begin research whenever they feel stuck about anything.

If you're in the process of filing for divorce, you're not alone. About 42% of marriages end in divorce. When children are involved, the process can be even more challenging. Even when you and your partner are divorcing amicably, children can have a hard time accepting the situation. Fortunately, there are a few simple ways you can make divorce easier for your children.
Make Sure Your Child Knows They Can See Both of You
It's important that your children understand that just because their parents are divorcing each other, it doesn't mean they're losing their parents. One of the things children most worry about is being able to see a non-custodial parent.

The new baby has arrived and mom is settling in. She's thrilled, exhausted, and potentially overwhelmed. New parents often receive a variety of presents for their new little bundle of joy to welcome them into the world. In this article, we are going to focus on mom and fun gifts for her.
Here are some fun gifts ideas for the special new mom in your life.
1) Time - Sometimes getting a shower with a brand new little one can be difficult. This is where you come in. Offer an invitation to donate a few hours of your time. These few hours could give mom a chance to shower, clean up the house, cook a meal or wash some laundry while you watch the new baby. Or you could offer to take some of the regular household tasks off her hands while she rests with the baby.

Creating your homeschooling curriculum can get a little spendy. Did you know that there are multiple resources available for home learning such as homeschooling printables?
What is a printable? Printables are digital products delivered electronically. They usually arrive soon after purchase in pdf form. They are easy peasy to order. Simply find the printable you want, purchase, retrieve product through email or account (If on Etsy), download and print.
Some printables are for one-time use and some are to be used over and over again such as flashcards, games, and bookmarks. Laminating your long-term use products can help them last longer.
To save you time and provide you with some fun ideas I’ve compiled ten printable learning choices including a few from my Soul To Soul With Carol Etsy store.
All ten ideas are from Etsy. Let’s support small businesses together!
Tip: When you find a printable you really like, favorite that store. That way you’ll receive notices when they have sales. I personally like to send out coupons regularly to my customers and I know other store owners do to.
The following ideas are not only great for homeschooling families. They also work great for Montessori and teachers too!
