Hair Trimmers For The Family

COVID really changed the way we live. We were forced to quarantine, meanwhile many businesses were forced to close or change the way they serve their customers. COVID may have shut down hair salons, beauty salons, and barber shops, forcing people to forgo getting their haircut or learn how to cut at home. We found hair trimmers for the family

Hair Trimmers For The Family
Beauty Brite Disclosure

COVID really didn’t change the way I cut my son’s hair as we have always cut his hair at home. When I became a single mom, I had to learn how to cut his hair. I watched a few youtube videos for tips and suggestions. I still don’t know what I’m doing, but I am doing the best I can and I think I am getting better each time.

My son and I love snacks, however I tend not to buy them! When I buy snacks my son likes, they are gone in a matter of days, even when I buy in bulk! It’s just a waste of money when I try to buy snacks in bulk and they only last a day or two. There are also those rare times when I find snacks we both like.

The Best Ideas To Create The Ultimate Family Backyard

Your backyard is nice. You have pretty landscaping, quality furniture, maybe a pool, maybe sports areas. The lawn is green, and everything is clean and tidy. And yet, you think you might want to take things up a notch and create something really memorable. Here are some ideas to help take your backyard from “very nice” to “ultimate.” Let’s create the ultimate family backyard!

The Best Ideas To Create The Ultimate Family Backyard

Water Features

Nothing says opulence like cascading water. A fountain or waterfall from a water feature store not only adds dramatic visual flair, it also gives you that lovely splashing, bubbling background sound. If you add a waterfall to a pool, the flip of a switch transforms your pool setting from smooth and placid to dynamic and exciting. Build in a water slide, for endless fun for the kids. The possibilities are endless, including everything from hot tubs that spill into the pool, to elaborate multi-level water creations that wind their way through your entire yard.

I am so grateful that Sambucol® offers a variety of ways to take elderberry! As a mom to a child with special needs, I am well aware he will not take many over-the-counter medicines or even prescription medication. When it comes to his vitamins, we have always had him take gummy vitamins! They taste great and they are like candy to him.

Week 6 #CampWarnerBros -Alex & Me Goal Chart and Family Workout

During this weird time, it’s hard to keep on track and set goals, but we try to do it every day. My daughter being out of school and unable to hang out with friends; we try to take the time to get out and workout. Working out is not my favorite thing to do, but I will do it for my daughter! The movie this week is Alex & Me.

Week 6- Alex & Me Movie

This week’s Camp Warner Bros movie Alex & Me taught my daughter that DEDICATION to something would take you a long way. Alex Morgan is a young female athlete who learns how you need passion, determination, and self-worth to make all your dreams come true.

Alex & Me CD Cover Week 6 #campwarnerbros

About Alex & Me:

Teenager Reagan Willis has one dream – to play soccer like her hero, Alex Morgan. Her bedroom is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Willis house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her prep football superstar brother, Logan. When Reagan fails to make the cut of the premiere local soccer club team and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she’s certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan’s poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life, and everything changes!

Summer is a great time for campers to think of their goals – be it short term or long term! In Alex & Me, Reagan (played by Siena Agudong (“Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn,” and “Star Falls”) uses a chart to keep track of her daily soccer drills as she progresses towards her goals.

Track Goals

Here is the CHART you can print out yourself- Alex & Me Goal Chart

Alex & Me Week 6 #campwarnerbros chart

Campers can hold themselves accountable, and mark off each item on their list as they are completed! My daughter enjoyed writing her goals down for the week, and her goal was not soccer but ARTWORK. She wanted to paint a pair of shoes, so she created a daily task to get it done, and she finished the shoes in 3 days.

Family Workout

Another goal that we both made is to work out every day for five days- we go for a walk for two days and workout in our backyard for three days. I needed this far more than she did, but we had fun and will continue. I like how my daughter looked forward to working out.

So here you go our backyard workout with the BodyGym- we do 15 minutes each on the bar and then stretches.

Working out as a family Week 6 Alex & Me #campwarnerbros

In soccer, developing strength enables a player to control his or her body better when they are striking or heading the ball, making a save in a goal, or changing directions abruptly on the field. Participating in group physical activity can be fun, elevate your mood, and strengthen your body, and bond with your team all at the same time. Print this activity sheet HERE.

Week 6 #Campwarnerbros Alex & Me Activity Sheet

Same with any physical activity – it is super important to teach these tricks early. Getting kids off the video games and TV is so important right now. Yes, it is summertime, but it’s not time to VEG OUT! I saw a big difference in my daughter’s attitude and mood when she got more exercise, and outside time so this is something we will continue. Thank you, ALEX, for teaching my daughter about goals!

We highly recommend the whole family to watch Alex & Me, which is is now available to own on Digital, Blu-ray™ & DVD.

Here are the previous movie and crafts- #CampWarnerBros

Thank YOU! Please let us know what your family is doing to keep on track and how you are staying active!
