Summer break is coming to an end, and for some, school is already back in full force. As I try to process where summer went, I am also trying to wrap my head around making and sending lunches and...
Weren't we just singing School's Out for Summer!? Now we teachers are crying as we see the back-to-school commercials and the school supplies being put out. And as parents, we might be celebrating that our kids will soon be heading...
With three kids, we're never early to anything. But somehow, all the stars aligned and I picked out everyone's "softest shirt" on my first try and we were early to my first grader's information day. By the time we conquered...
As parents, we begin making decisions about the care of our babies the minute they enter the world (and even before!). Each new stage of life brings new choices, but none feel so important as that of where and...
When I was a kid, I didn't know many homeschoolers. The ones I did know were the stereotypical homeschoolers. You know the ones: denim jumpers, thought "frick" was a swear word, and could recite the entire Declaration of Independence at age...

My son is 4.5, and he's very interested in letters, reading, and writing. I'm thrilled that he's always loved reading, and lately, he's shown an interest in longer-form stories. Needless to say, I was more than ready to delve into...
It's a good thing for me there isn't a parent report card. Or at least if there is, I'm glad I've never seen mine. Don't get me wrong; I don't think I would be failing everything. I'm pretty sure...
