Gran Apertura Bowlero en Miami

Gran Apertura Bowlero en Miami

 Artículo es patrocinado por Dime Media, pero todas las opinions son mías. Desde que yo era una niña me encantaba ir a jugar boliche con mis amistades. Nunca se trato de quién jugaba mejor sino de lo chévere que la pasabamos cuando estabamos juntos. Cuando leí que Bowlmor AMF, el líder mundial en el entretenimiento de boliche había invertido millones de dolares en renovar su centro ubicado en el Dolphin Mall de Miami llamado Bowlero enseguida pensé en lo divertido y perfecto para los niños que hago “mentoring”. Cuando llegamos a Bowlero Miami había una atmósfera chic, fascinante, que los chicos mencionaron que pareciera estar en un club. Estaban tan emocionados de estar ahi. Esta vez pude llevarme a cinco de los chicos. Empezamos jugando Laser Tag, que por cierto solo uno de ellos lo había jugado antes, así que fue una nueva experiencia para los demás y que mucho nos divertimos. Después nos fuimos a jugar boliche que también fue una nueva experiencia para la mayoría de ellos. Me fascina escuchar a los chicos reirse. Me da una satisfacción enorme verlos gozando. Después de los juegos fuimos al restaurante dentro del lugar y mientras cenabamos hablamos de lo mucho que disfrutamos estar en Bowlero a su vez planeando cuando regresaríamos de nuevo. Nuestros hijos son pequeños por tan poco tiempo. Tomen el tiempo de crear momentos especiales, momentos que los chicos se llevaran con ellos toda la vida. Les recomiendo Bowlero para crear esos momentos inigualables así sea con sus familiares, fiestas privadas, eventos corporativos o como hice yo hoy me que pedi permiso a los padres de estos chiquillos para compartir una noche muy especial de la cual se que nunca se olvidaran.

Now is the time to Prepare for your Child’s College Education

Now is the time to Prepare for your Child’s College Education

 This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. All thoughts are my own. There is no equal love to the one we have toward our children. We want the best for them. We are their first teachers and we hope that we do a good job at parenting. I think the most important thing of all is that our children know without a shadow of a doubt that they are loved no matter what happens. As parents we think ahead and plan for everything in our children’s life by day, weeks, months and their future. Everyone agrees that receiving a college education without incurring a substantial amount of student loan debt allows students to focus on building a better future for themselves. Since 1987 the Florida Prepaid College Plan has grown to become the largest and longest continuously running prepaid plan in the nation thanks to Stanly G Tate’s exceptional vision and dedication to Florida’s future generations. A Florida Prepaid College Plan allows families to prepay the cost of college tuition, required fees and dormitory housing based upon projected future costs. When your child is ready for college, the plan pays the tuition and registration fees covered under the plan at any Florida College or State University. If your child attends an out-of-state college or private college, the plan will pay the same amount as it would pay at a public college or university in Florida. Did you know that college graduates benefit from a higher employment rate and stronger earning potential? A student with a bachelor’s degree can earn $1.6 million more in their lifetime than a student with only a high school diploma. Investing in their future today will ensure a brighter tomorrow. Not only does a Florida Prepaid College Plan give you peace of mind about your child’s education, it will make you feel great about their future. We understand that saving for college can seem stressful and just downright scary. Relax, and know we’re here with the tools to help you find the right plan for you. Myfloridaprepaid.com is the resource for helping you in every way possible. Our College Savings 101 interactive Conversation is a fun and informative way to learn what Florida Prepaid Plan options might be best for you. Our online Pricing too is a quick and easy way to instantly calculate your preferred Prepaid Plan cost. Here is an example of one of the Florida Prepaid Plans I would like to share with you today. I really think this is a great idea, check it out. 1 Year Florida University Plan: Now...
