The Benefits of Enrolling in Karate



If you are looking for a new hobby or a way to get into shape, karate in Wakefield is the sport for you. You can get your whole family involved while burning calories and learning about the important side of martial arts.


Karate is an ancient Asian form of self-defense that can teach so many more things. It can be enjoyed by the oldest person all the way to younger kids. Anyone can grasp it and become good at doing it. There are many forms of martial arts, and karate is one of the most popular. It teaches you the basics of self-defense and you will usually have the chance to compete with others, especially while you are training and learning. There are many companies and professionals that teach karate. Research various places and ask to try out a free class. This will allow you to determine if you want to pursue this and put your energy and time into learning and studying.

Karate gives you the chance to earn various colored belts that represent a level that you are at. Everyone starts with white, which stands for purity. Yellow is the sun, and blue represents the sky. Green signifies your growth in karate, while red has a strong place for fire, passion, and heat. The last color that you should be aiming for is black. This stands for darkness, but not in an evil or creepy sort of way. It is directed towards a dark universe that is vast and open. It symbolizes that you have reached the end and that you have achieved one of the highest rankings there is. You will now be respected and honored for getting your hands on a black belt. It takes time to earn each belt, but once you do, you can be proud and happy that you have taken the steps to earn them.

For a great leaning and exercise experience, karate in Wakefield is just what you need. You can get your body in shape, while teaching your mind and soul the basics of self-defense in an ancient Asian art form.

Old El Paso..Mexi Night at Meg's House...Holla!

Tonight was the perfect night for me to try the new Old El Paso frozen entrees they've come out with.

It was just me & Cheeks.  I reheated some angel hair pasta for him (with butter & cheese, thank you) & for me I broke out some new frozen Old El Paso Chicken Quesadillas.

They look yummy, no?
The box states meal for two.
Sure, if you aren't Bobster or a 15yo teenage boy.

It was just me so I took one out.
Viola!

Serving size is 2 of these.
I only took one out because I wasn't that hungry.  Imagine that...I know...it's a fluke!

I then took a gander at the directions and saw it was only for the microwave.  Meh, I actually prefer oven cooking because 9 times out of 10 when you cook in a microwave it doesn't come out very pretty.  Timing was 2 mins 15 secs.  Turned it on, it beeped & again...Viola!

I was spot on with what I said it would like coming out of the microwave.

Despite it's appearance, it was really good. 
The cheese was nice and gooey.
All the flavors blended nicely and it wasn't overly spicy.

I thought about going back for a second one but I decided against it.  Want to keep my girlish figure!

These quesadillas will definitely make it in my cart again when I go food shopping.
Albeit for lunch, not dinner.  I think they are perfect for lunch at work.  Quick cooking and tastes great.

Tell me, what Old El Paso item is your fav?

Cheerios, The Justice League & Target

Three of my fav things.
Cheerios...oh so good.
The Justice League...Yes, I've become a big ole superhero dork...thanks to the boys in my life.
Target...do I have to explain?

Check it out:

See that Exclusive Comic Book inside.

I thought Cheeks was going to burst.
Then I thought I would burst because now he will eat the yummy, good for Cheerios plus read while he does it.
It doesn't get much better than that for the  mom of a second grader who says he doesn't like to read.
Put a superhero in the book & he will devour it.

Cheerios, to me, is the epitome of good, old fashion, wholesome cereal.
Target, to me, is the mother ship...you too?

It was nice for the three favs in my life to team up to bring good healthy food to the masses.

Are you a Cheerios fan?
A Justice League fan?
A Target fan?

Let me know and make sure you get your Cheerios with the comic book inside!

What Is Your Preschooler Actually Learning?




There is a lot of speculation into preschool and whether or not it is necessary for young children. While it may look like they are only dancing around and playing games, there is actually a huge amount of development going on with social, physical, emotional, and intellectual development. What your child learns about at this stage of their life is actually setting the foundation for the rest of their lives. Young children learn best through creative play and activities, so you have to remember that when they are putting that train track together and building that tower out of blocks, they are actually learning about physics and problem solving. Have you driven past the Newport Ave Preschool and wondered what they were doing in there? Here are a few of the subjects that they are covering.


Children will learn about letters and their sounds. Being able to recognize and name every letter of the alphabet is a stepping stone to reading. They will learn about the letters in their name and how to spell it. Preschool-age children will also learn about the sounds associated with each letter as they begin their journey of being able to read someday. The love of language, however, starts at home and it starts early. It’s important that you read to your child each day and take opportunities to point out letters in their everyday life.

Preschoolers at Newport Ave Preschool and elsewhere will become familiar with and be able to name the different colors, shapes, and body parts. While they are at school, there is a lot of learning that can go on in regards to colors, shapes, and body parts. However, there is even more learning that can be done outside of the classroom as you interact with your child. Colors and shapes are all around your child and can be pointed out as you are at home or traveling around. Knowing the names of their body parts will also make their life a little bit easier when they are learning about themselves and the world around them. They can find great enjoyment in being able to point to their elbow, knee, and other parts of their body.
