Best of the Web- March 5

Hi guys!  It’s March!  Hallelujah!  It’s no joke that I’m not a fan of winter-  I can hardly function.  I’m ready for you, out-like-a-lamb March.  I have windows to open. 🙂

I’m a little late to the party, but here are my favorite links from the past week:

Life/Parenting

4 Things that Helped Astronaut Scott Kelly Tough out a Year in Space–  I’ve been really intrigued by all the coverage of Scott Kelly’s return to earth. Did you know he grew 2 inches? What?

6 Ways to Do Math without a Math Book– I know this is a homeschooling article, but it can be helpful for anyone who thinks their children need additional math skills (and kudos for all the real-life skills mentioned).

Travel

Taking a Caribbean Cruise?  Here’s what you need to know– The Traveling Canucks really spared no detail on how to take a Carnival cruise with two small kids.  This is one you’ll want to check out.

7 tips to plan your Iceland roadtrip– Because I’m still obsessed with Iceland.  And Norway.  (in summertime, of course).

Money

Why I won’t pay $15 an Hour for a Babysitter–  I thought this was interesting!  I definitely had sticker shock at the cost of babysitting, considering 15 years ago as a teenage babysitter I made between $1-$4/ hour!!  We typically pay $10-$12 an hour depending on the experience and age of the sitter.  What’s the cost where you are?

 

Any favorites?  What are you up to this weekend?
