Prejudice Through the Eyes of a Child
One of the reasons I wanted to homeschool my kids this year is to be able to more fully explain the social issues of our time.  We're taking the month of February to work through the culture and geography of Africa, working right through to slavery, aboliti...

January in Pictures
How are we already a month into the new year?   Sometimes I think that if I didn't take pictures of our lives, all the days would blur into a strangely faint memory of diapers, schooling, and hot dogs with mac & cheese.   But thankfully, we have a few pictu...

P is for Parent (That's Good Enough for Me)
I sit here today after a whirlwind homeschool playdate.  It was blissfully perfect  joyfully chaotic and the kids learned twenty facts about Greece  at least one true fact about the Olympics, while exploring why taking turns is always fun  probably the fast...

The Parenting Job

Decluttering Is Crazy Hard (and Good for my Soul)
My house is getting cleaner.  It looks less full. There is a couch on my front porch waiting to be discarded because I stopped sentimentally holding onto that one piece of ragged furniture that I didn't want to give up because I reupholstered it myself.  Wh...

It Takes Three to Make a Mess Go Right
(Ok, ignore my cheesy post title.  My house is a little too hot and I haven't had my second cup of coffee.) I do not clean well or often.  I probably should at least care a little more about cleaning, but there is little reward in cleaning a house where chi...
