Born To Run

Juliana here! I'm excited to review the book, Born To Run by Ann Hunter

I got this in exchange for my honest review.
I really enjoyed this book because it has (race) horses (like black Stallion), and a technically out-law. Alex goes to this family that she has to stay with for ten days, after running away from a foster home. She bonds with one of the really fast horses that I think is named Magmite. There's also another horse that goes in a race that I think is named Victor Galixies. I loved it so much (and Piece of Sky #CrownsoftheTwelve) that I want to read the rest of the series (of both).

Absolutely Genius

Every now and then, someone in the world comes up with something so genius that one wonders- WHY was this not here before?! This has happened again!

I have a 7 year old. He's cute. He's smart. He's funny. He plays soccer. But he CANNOT tie his shoes. We've tried teaching him by example. We've tried walking him through it. We've tried having his siblings teach him. We've tried other adults teaching him. We've tried YouTube videos. Nothing. Soccer cleats MUST be tied to be safe. I was at my wits end. Then I was offered to try these silicon shoelaces. I'm so happy I could cry!!

Look how cool!!!

 My video is short, but soccer practice was moved to tomorrow, so I couldn't get the actions shots I wanted. Check it out here:

While I did receive these for free in exchange for my honest review, I will willingly buy more!!
