Knott's Berry Farm Hotel is a great 3 star hotel centrally located in Southern California to many attractions great for a Staycation. The hotel is next door to Knott's the amusement park and Soak City Waterpark.  It's only a few minutes from Orange County beaches and South Coast Plaza Shopping.  Our stay was made special by Snoopy tucking our kids into bed. The next morning, Snoopy and his friends met us in the lobby to say Good Morning.  If you stay on the first floor Snoopy will personally wish you good-night.

The price of the room includes a gym, sauna, large heated pool and spa with a resort style deck full of great lounge chairs.  The pool area has an amazing kid's water play feature with water falls, water cannons and spray toys.  Enjoy wireless internet, ironing boards, coffee stations, Disneyland Shuttle, Full room service and gift shop.  Not to mention, there are many amazing places to eat including Mrs. Knott's Chicken Restaurant, TGI Fridays, Amber Waves dining, Full Bar and Grand Lobby to socialize.  The hotel offers a wedding chapel and full service wedding packages at reasonable prices.  Enjoy a fantastic event with several ballrooms for every occasion. 

The day we attended it was hot and there were kids playing in the pool as well as the  water feature play area (picture above).  On our stay the play area was filled with lots of families enjoying the moon and happy kids playing in the water. I recommend if you have older family members and young kids to entertain, then this is the perfect spot. Have the kids play all day at Knott's, Soak City or the pool area while your senior parents enjoy soaking in the sun.

How to make a California Mission Model.

Learn how to make a California Mission Model at home or in the classroom. We made this project as part of the California Public School Fourth grade requirement in a group setting. Continue to read on to get the supply list and instructions for a successful mission model. On an ordinary day, I was reminded how amazing kids really are when there are no limits. Just as equally amazing are the teachers who guide them and teach them everyday.  I am very thankful for the opportunity that I was given as a parent volunteer.  The day was like a beautiful dance where parents, teachers and students came together for a common goal. The goal was to make models of California Missions from a simple picture and lots of cardboard.  I can honestly say the goal was reached and everyone deserved an "A".

State Testing and a letter of encouragement

State Testing CCSS SBAC is starting next week for our area.  This semester, my son's fourth grade teacher has asked that I write him a letter of encouragement.  She gave us a few weeks notice. I have, in the past few days, written a few handwritten notes of encouragement. Then, I would wake up the next day realizing that it was not loving enough and second guessing myself. This task has been a little hard for me.  Then, the final email reminder came from the teacher. It read as follow: "This is just a friendly reminder to please send a letter of encouragement to your student to be opened this coming Monday, May 1. Students will be given the letters prior to taking their first test."  Oh my goodness, I have to get it done!!! So, I put on my big girl pants and re-wrote the letter for the 5th time. This time, I made it classroom friendly and left out lots of the I love you's and all the mushy stuff I had written before. The letter went something like this:  Dea
