We love pasta, and we like to try different meat combinations. We also like marinara and alfredo sauces, however sometimes simple is better and I have found that pesto allows me to get creative with the pasta combinations. It is also easy to make, you can make a big batch and freeze to use later. Here is a simple family recipe for homemade pesto.
Combine basil leaves, olive oil, pine cuts and garlic on a blender. Blend until a paste forms. Add cheese and salt and continue blending until mixture is smooth. Put into a small bowl and then top with 1/2 inch olive oil and let cool.
If you would like to freeze, place in small containers and place on the freezer.

You can make this for dinner at home, but they are also great for a party. They are easy to make and a healthy option that both adults and kids will enjoy.
I have been very involved on my son’s education. Even though he goes to school, I complement his learning with activities at the house and even some extra homework. I believe school teaches basics, but parents are a very important component of kids learning and success in school.
I am always looking for ways to motivate my son and for programs or websites that have activities I can use at home to help my son practice what he has learned and even teach him new things. Before school started we decided that it was time to refresh some of the things he learned in 3rd grade and also to start learning some 4th grade concepts. It was then when I found the website Prek12 Plaza . We are loving this website.
I think it is great that we can use technology to help our kids learn. But we have to be careful because not everything that is out in the internet is correct and we do not want our kids to learn things that are not true. The PreK12 Plaza website counts with great resources and information we can trust. There is another advantage to the site, it is bilingual and multicultural. This is very important for me, because I want my son to have a great cultural background.
The website offers tools for each grade level and different topics, such as math, language and science. The website site offers a comprehensive Common Core Standard based Bilingual Preparation and Assessments platform: “Our approach to math education is to engage the child with fun and rewarding experiences, offer teachers comprehensive tools to manage the learning process and get the child’s extended Familia involved.”
Another cool thing about the website is the content called TAILs (Teaching as I Learn) where you upload videos of what your kids are learning, so they can help other families learn the same topic. There is also e-books and so many tools that will make learning fun. Kids can earn points that they can exchange for rewards.
I encourage you to visit this cool bilingual website and see how it can help your child progress faster in school. It is fun and user friendly.

About the DVD
Get ready for this amazing adventure that shows how kids can save the world! NORVA and JORPE are a gifted and loving sister and brother living in Thailand who have unique abilities to communicate with nature. They literally run into SAM, the son of the president of the Capital State, when he gets lost on a scouting expedition. Sam is impetuous and fool-hardy, but he soon learns to respect his two companions as his electronic gadgets go haywire and strange, burning objects plunge from the sky. The kids rush to the Capital State to warn the president and stop the damage, but they’re no match for the energy-hungry devices that threaten to engulf the planet. The only way to prevent the complete destruction of the world is to turn off all the power and let the earth regenerate, but how can they get the message across to everyone in time?
