Gardening Together

I grew up helping in the family garden. I love being outside, getting dirty, and working with my hands. So I feel like my kids should also help in the family garden. This goes back to teaching life skills. In case of a deep recession or, God forbid, another depression, our youth need to know…

When Do You Have Time?

"You homeschool AND work? When do you have time for yourself?" The looks I get when people hear what all I do and it's usually followed by 'when do you have time for yourself?'.

Meal Plan 3/24-3/30

Unfortunately, I worked this Saturday. So we resorted to the "Mommy's Too Tired To Cook" breakfast plan: cereal. No shame. Also, my mother in law had to babysit so that I could work. She ended up providing the lunch that day. Also, we didn't exactly follow last week's plan to a 'T'. Some of those…

All About Me Giveaway!

I am giving away a download of my train-themed All About Me printable. This is the first page of a special project I've been working on for Auggie. He has been branching out to a lot of different 'likes' lately, but he will still spend hours watching videos of steam engines and toy trains on youtube.   Here's…
