Can you believe that 2014 is over? I sure can’t. Sitting with some friends last night and catching up, I realized just how much has happened this last year both in our lives and on the blog. As a culmination of many of the projects I have been part of, I have been posting some “Best of” posts for a variety of categories, including parenting, sensory, science and even homeschooling.
This blog would not be where it is today, however, without the network of bloggers I have met, the projects I have been a part of and the generous shares on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.

The Post That Changed Everything
In wrapping up 2014, I would be missing something if I didn’t mention the post that changed the course of many things for me, our family and the future of our business. In September, as part of a back to school series, I posted our DIY Sensory Toolkit that we created for our son when he was in school and struggling with focus, fidgeting, and meltdowns. It wasn’t long before we were getting emails, Facebook messages and more asking if we could create and sell this kit.
After some thought and a little research, Project Sensory was born. With just 3 months under our belt, it is still new and we are still working out some kinks, but the project looks promising. We are determined to create a resource for parents, educators, and caregivers to learn more about sensory needs in all children and provide them with support and tools to help their children be successful at school and home. We are pleased to announce that on the last day of the year, we shipped out our first fully donated kit, and we have 300 teachers on the wait list for more. This thing is big! Bigger than we ever thought it could be.
