Jump Start Summer & Another GIVEAWAY!

Don't miss My BIG Celebration Giveaway!!! Click here for another one!

Are YOU are driving your kids nuts??? Come on....are you driving them nuts yet??
I push mine outdoors and we have lots to do, most days, but once in awhile it's nice to come in the house, shut down the shades, crank up the A/C and let them veg.
My little Z-man has found his veg... it's this!

Jump Start online has been his new little passion...or should I say obsession...and a good one I might add! Before school got out, every day he'd come home and say, "Mom! Can I PLEASE-PLEASE-PLEASE play the cool jumping game!! Please...." I gave him 20 minutes after school each day to play some Jump Start....and I was so impressed with what he learned in that short period of time.

Here's a list of a few of our favorites features!

  • EASY to navigate - He had NO trouble at all using and CD game "3D Virtual World - Legend of Grizzly McGuffin"
  • Creating his own avatar - "Jumpees"...he LOVED this part!
  • The games are educational, but fun! As he enjoyed playing "video games" and didn't even realize he was learning so much....actually, I take that back. He did realize it. He called me over to the computer about every 26 seconds to show me a new word he could spell or a math problem he solved.
  • Another great feature is it's personalized for each child and it's creative, bright, and let's them use their allows them to create and think.
  • Progress Reports! Yes, I get his progress reports emailed to me that show me what he's learned and completed....oh, yeah, and they have a Parent section...oh and a blog!
  • He loves AdventureLand!! They can explore and are given missions. Here are a few screen shots of his adventures...

So I guess what I'm trying to say is...Jump Start has created a great online World and CD program for kids! I give it 2 thumbs up....and so does Z-man!!!

you can't hear him right now....but he's asking to get on and play as I type....

Sonia, over at Jump Start has offered a lucky reader a 3-month membership to! A free upgrade to use and take advantage of the entire site!! Perfect for the summer months! It's a great tool to keep your kid's minds thinking and not forgetting everything they learned over the past 9 months of's so much better than a "workbook"....and who wants to sit down and do a workbook during the summer?? NOT ME!

I also really like the Bracelet on this watch which is a Breitling Navitimer and comes in brushed stainless steel to match the case. The 20mm wide clasp is also brushed stainless steel and there is a flip lock that is marked with the classic wings and Navitimer World logo. The fit and finish on the Chronomat B01 is excellent and in my opinion it is not too fussy like many Montbrillant Datora can be, it is truly a lovely watch that oozes style and character.
Christian Louboutin Sale is a bride’s best friend. Preparing for a wedding is a heavy task for a woman. Many brides wanted to look good with Christian Louboutin Pumps on their weddings. The bride to be is busy looking for a wedding planner, the right color motif, souvenirs, the wedding dress, the guests, flowers and many other details during her preparations. Aside from her wedding dress, the bride also finds the right Christian Louboutin Boots to feet her feet. Just like choosing the dress, choosing Christian Louboutin Sandals for the wedding is also a decision that a woman has to do.
Discount Coach handbags are very in high demand these days. One of the biggest reasons discount Coach Ergo are in demand, is that when you compare them to fashion bags in general, Coach Gallery are one of the cheapest. These bags are a great introduction to the fashion world. Many women save up for months in order to buy their very first Coach Hamptons .
