I love Farmers Markets! It is a great way to support local farmers and get delicious, fresh produce! It is also a great way to teach children the process of growing food and how it goes from the farms to our tables.

None of us are perfect, and we all end up running on empty or losing our shit now and then. However, it is imperative to find ways to get back on track, to make us happy, to find balance, to move forward. Motherhood is not easy, and we are all doing the best we can

Between this and homeschooling, we sometimes deal with some ridiculous statements.

As you can tell from the owl in the corner, she had to make… Continue reading Wordful Wednesday: Making Learning Fun
Ok, I should be working on something else right now, but I have decided I need to take a time out to rant on the following: why is it that my children only sleep in when we have to go somewhere or I have insomnia? It is almost 9:30 am, which of course means we… Continue reading Please Explain…
