I hope this finds you all safe and sound in the aftermath of Sandy's visit. I'm fortunate that we made it without losing power, and the only thing she left in her wake were extra branches to be picked up and some flashing needing to be replaced on the house. I'm sending loving thoughts to those who didn't fair as well.
Playing with shaving cream can keep my son busy for hours. Driving his truck and diggers through the foamy stuff is great fun. And inexpensive! :) It's also great to practice vocbulary or spelling words.
