Technology is a part of our lives every day. Between cell phones, cameras, computers, TVs, kitchen appliances and more, we touch technology more than we likely realize.
Even our kids use technology every day – I know my girls love their LeapPads! It’s amazing that they’ve made it for 3 years with the same LeapPads, with no breaks! I can only imagine the meltdowns that would ensue if one of them broke.
The loss of even one of our technology items due to a breakdown or accident can disrupt our daily lives. I depend upon my computer, cell phone and camera for work. We rely on our kitchen appliances to be able to serve our family nourishing meals. And like it or not, we depend upon our TV for a source of entertainment at the end of the day.

I have talked a lot recently about how Zoë is starting 1st grade in a few weeks, but we haven’t talked much about how Kaylee only has one more year until Kindergarten. She has been asking about going to preschool, and we have gone back and forth on whether we should send her 1-2 days a week, or just do preschool preparations at home with her like we did with Zoë.
We decided we’ll work with her at home for now, and see how that goes before deciding upon preschool. She is a very active little girl, and things need to be fun to get her interested. She loves learning from her big sister, but when she goes back to school I’ll need ways to work with her that work with her style and interests. So we headed to Walmart to see what educational activities we could find to make education fun for her.
They have a huge back to school section right now, and we found that Disney Junior has released a line of back to school products, focusing on the preschool to Kindergarten ages. Since we’re really working on the basics right now – letters and numbers – I picked up 3 different activities for Kaylee from the Disney Junior Selection: Learning Easel Activity Center, featuring Sophia the First, and the Counting Learning Activity and Alphabet Learning Activity, featuring Doc McStuffins.
