Do you ever wonder, when you stop for a moment and think, who’s teaching whom anyway?
So I know I’ve learned stuff this week. I’m hoping I can remember it at 9:00 on a Saturday evening when I’m pretty much ready to go to bed an hour ago. This week I’ve learned– That the reason corrugated cardboard is so strong is the same reason you might fold a piece of pizza […]
You’re okay with walking, climbing, and maybe even running now and then. But leaping?
One of our nightly routines around the dinner table is to share something we’ve learned that day. Mostly my kids stick to stuff they read or learned to do in school.

It was a good week. Tiring. But good. I feel so blessed to be here with these kiddos doing this thing. Over the summer, as I thought about what I wanted to do for this school year, I decided two things: First, that I was going to have to find something to do with Squeezy […]
I recently started doing something new in Photoshop Elements– new to me anyway– called art journaling.
