I love a new year. I don’t do the resolutions thing in general, but I like the excuse to examine the year that’s gone and think ahead to what I want for the coming one, and make some plans to move forward. January of 2018 was no exception. If anything, I was ready to launch […]

We talked a couple days ago what we’re doing to make our homeschool year more… well… educational this year, but I totally left something out. We did a couple weeks of a daily checklist for the kids.

One of the things I’m doing this year is making small, easily accomplished goals to see if any of them make life smoother, better, happier. Here’s May’s progress and June’s goal.
I’ve not been momming for very long. Really only just over five years. So you’ll pardon me if I’m a little late to catch on to this. I have never been the mom who tiptoes in to check on her kids after they fall asleep. What if I wake them? I mean, the fear is real. On […]
