Why I've Decided to Homeschool

This summer I am deciding if I’m going to unenroll my daughter from public school and homeschool her next year. But if you were to ask me for my answer today it would most definitely be yes. Yes I am. I’ve told a handful of friends and my husband and the…

To be honest I wasn't even planning on going to see this movie. But I'm glad I did so I can tell you what I really think.

A 5-Year-Old's Take on Finding Dory. #FindingDory

Last night my 5-year-old daughter and I screened Finding Dory. This girl was READY. I’m talking countdowns, was dressed in blue when I came home, with her “talk like a whale” pinned to her top. She’s watched Finding Nemo on the last week of school with…

Choosing to Serve Together as a Family. #ollykids @OllyNutrition

“Can I have one of my super vitamins?” My daughter asked me before we left to start our busy morning. “Sure baby,” I held them out, urging her to choose quickly. We had an important task ahead of us. MIGHTY Immunity, HAPPY Tummy, SUPER Brainy, GROWING…
