Branching Narrative Episodes on Netflix

Netflix launches the first "branching" narrative episode, Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, in which the viewer gets to decide where to take the story next. Children have the opportunity to make choices and create non-linear adventures that will lead to two pre-determined main storylines. Buddy Thunderstruck (July 14) and Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout (next year) will be added to the "branching" narrative episodes.

Helly Hansen Rainwear and Footwear

Wearing stylish and comfortable footwear is important to properly enjoy outdoors, and be active for long periods of time, so we can soak in the warm summer weather we have longed for. When it comes to footwear, we are quite picky as we find there is a direct correlation between footwear and how we feel at the end of the day. Uncomfortable footwear can lead to problems such as back pain.

With informative STEM education geared books from DK, it is easy for us to encourage our children to keep their minds active and practice a variety of age appropriate concepts.

More Convenience with Keyless Schlage Connect

Schlage Connect
Last year, with the help of the Schlage Touch we started our journey to the Keyless future. This made things convenient for us, and we had one less thing to worry about. The Schlage Touch uses a custom pin to unlock the front door, which makes it very convenient for the adults and children. In the mornings when heading out, there is no waiting near the door for everyone to be out to lock the door with a key as all it takes with the Schlage is to turn the lever to lock the door.

Register Soon for TAC Summer Camp

School will be out in a few weeks! During the summer vacations we are planning to relax, spend time camping, and going on road trips. However, these will not fill all the summer days. My children are excited about returning to TAC Summer Camp where they get to play, learn, make memories and have fun with children in the same age groups.

Anytime is Prime Time

Netflix has changed the way we watch TV. As a child, my siblings and I had the habit of settling down to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings, or watching the Friday night movie that comes on TV.
