We tried that for a bit but it wasn't for us.… Continue reading An Update

Easy Homemade Snow

It's summer, so that makes it a little difficult, but there's also COVID-19 which puts a large damper on traveling, making it much less desirable.

Our Kids Deserve Better

I believe this with every part of me! We can put learning on hold. No, we SHOULD put learning on hold. Or at least pump the brakes. Our kids will survive, and they will be successful in life, BUT ONLY if we help them to navigate what they're experiencing right now. Five years from now… Continue reading Our Kids Deserve Better

How are you doing during "national homeschooling"? Times are rough, and it's become cliche', but seriously, we're all in this together!
