So don’t tell Big Hugaboo what his birthday gift is… but I’ll tell you! This year we got him a Lego WeDo Robotics kit!!! I’m so excited for him to open this. His birthday is this weekend so he’ll get to open it in a few days, but man I want to peek at it and play a bit! We got the homeschool version so it comes with a binder that has various activities in it. Also comes with software so he’ll be able to learn some basic computer programming. Of course, we want it to be a learning opportunity as well so last week and this week we’re learning about simple machines. We even made a spoon catapult this afternoon! As soon as he opens his gift I’ll post pictures!

Ok, this is a random mommy post. I just had to mention my excitement over saving money at Target today. They had individual cups of oatmeal on sale for $1.02 each. And buy 5 get a $5 gift card sale. PLUS I had coupons for a $1 off of each one. Are you doing the math? Let’s see….
$1.02 x 10 packages = $10.20
$1 off each package = $0.20 owed
Gift cards rec’d = $10.00
Profit = $9.80
So, I actually MADE money on the deal and came home with 10 packages of oatmeal! We are now completely stocked up for oatmeal when nuclear disaster or a random bird flu hits ;)
