At the beginning of the school year I shared about my excitement for the Weekly Homeschool Planner that would hopefully make our first year go smoothly. So did it?
Well I’ll be honest, the first half of the year I was amazing at updating the planner. I followed the advice of veteran homeschoolers that planning is the key to homeschool success.
Over time I got into the habit of not scheduling our school out, letting the advice that was so key slip on by.Read More
Boy is this one smart 11 year old. In the video below he shares his thoughs about eating local, getting to know your farmers, and how farming isn’t what you might think it is.
Is the food you eat genetically modified in some lab or has it been freshly picked from the ground by your neighbor?
Does your meat come from a farm where thousands of animals are crammed into a small barn?
When was the last time you read a food label?Read More
Before I had children, I could be counted upon to remember birthdays, anniversaries, and minor holidays with impressive accuracy and punctuality. However, after birthing two babies, transitioning to full-time mommy and homemaker, and never fully recovering from “baby brain,” my loved ones are fortunate to receive timely acknowledgements of their special days.
Ironically, now that the Hubs and I are parents, it’s events like Father’s Day that often catch me off-guard. Sad but true.Read More
The dog days of summer are almost upon us. Most of us look forward to the beautiful weather and greenery. However, few of us really enjoy the extreme heat. If you are pregnant this time of year, you are in for a special treat. The heat and humidity can be bad enough, but facing them while pregnant can bring on a whole new slew of challenges.
Staying cool while pregnant is not something you only want to pursue for comforts sake. You also need to keep the health of your baby in mind. Excessive heat and the accompanying dehydration will do neither one of you any favors. I don’t mean to alarm, but becoming overheated can cause a number of potential health issues for you and your baby.Read More

Camping. It sounds so peaceful, so away from the business of life. And then you add kids. Camping with children doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, it can be a really fun experience for everyone and a chance to build memories that will last a lifetime.
I can’t remember a single family camping trip without small children in tow. I am the oldest of 8 and while my family didn’t really camp, us kids did in the backyard and once I got married my husband and I were both so busy that we didn’t camp till having children slowed us down. And so, I know camping as a very noisy, very snuggled up, extra-joyful family time.Read More
While I like to believe that I’m an expert in all fields of life, it just isn’t so. I can talk someone blue in the face about breastfeeding, skipping baby cereals, my love of bamboo cloth diapers, or how awesome having four boys is but when it comes to gardening I’m a complete beginner.
I am proud of myself this year for getting a large container garden going and some of it is even showing signs of being a thriving shaded vegetable garden. Through the help of reading a couple of books I feel that I now know enough that in a few weeks I’ll be buying less of certain vegetables at the Farmer’s Market. Here are the top five books beginners should read to get started in a quest to garden, farm or homestead their land (or back porch like I do) according to me – a beginner gardening mom!Read More
