What to do when you're feeling down?  Take a little time.  Maybe write a blog post.

Part of my major stress and anxiety last year was centered around supporting my first grader in learning how to read and spell. We finally found a tool to help her learn without the stress, while connecting and having fun.

I'm feeling pretty good this Friday.  What a change from last year, where I was exhausted and in need of recharge each week by the time Friday rolled around.

To satisfy our homeschool goals, this year we'll be doing an anthropology course, with a special focus on geek culture.  Should be a lot of fun!

Part of our "Back to School" has been updating our study-games box.  This is one of my favorite tools for helping one of my kids learn her spelling and sight words.

+Nova Austin, read this!
 
Getting good sleep is hard.  We've found that getting the lights off at night matters in a big way.  A laptop (especially my huge 17" screen) really destroys my ability to fall asleep.  I try to dim the lights after dinner, and for the last 30 minutes before bed, as dim as I can still read by (on paper).

On a recent road trip across the country, I got tired of eating fast food. My husband and I agreed to take the kids to a sit down restaurant, and Fancy Sushi looked like a reasonable place to try out. Thinking to go for quick and easy (and hard to go wrong with), we ordered cucumber rolls, and avocado rolls for the kids. It was a great choice. The avocado was *perfectly* ripe, and the cucumbers crisp and delicious. My husband ordered a few more traditional rolls for himself, and had no complaints.

My husband and I were recently traveling across country with our kids and 4 month old puppy. We had planned to stop in Billings at another hotel, only to discover that the room was way too small to fit our family. We went across the street to see if the Kelly Inn could meet our needs. To our great relief, they could! We had plenty of space to sleep on clean, comfortable beds. The room we were given had two queens, a full size pull out couch, room for our gear (including dog crate!), and a microwave to heat up some dinner. We will definitely be back next time we drive through.

Consistently awesome, well brewed cuppa Joe. My inlaws visited this spring and the owner remembered their drink after their second visit. Very friendly and sweet to my kids too.

I grew up in Fenton, and now visit only every few years. It's become a tradition to take my children with me to Sweet Variations and let them pick out a treat. My two oldest daughters were in awe of how good the chocolates were. There's nothing quite like real, made-on-site, quality chocolate.

It was a delight to tell my two young children (both with multiple food allergies and celiac) that they could have anything they want. The look on my six year holds face was priceless.
