Our family has now been stationed in Maryland for a couple of months, and we’ve just experienced our first blizzard!

6 years ago we made the decision to homeschool Emily. We homeschooled her for Pre-K through 4th grade. It didn’t come naturally to us at first.

Today I had a much needed date day with my daughter, Emily! As a homeschooling mom, I am with her 24/7, but we are usually focused on making sure chores, schoolwork & errands are done. We don’t always make the time to stop and smell the roses, so to speak.
Today was just a day to do . . . → Read More: Mommy Daughter Day
I am always looking for fun science experiments to incorporate into our homeschooling, and this one did not disappoint us. What a great experiment for Earth Day, St. Patrick’s Day, or just anytime for a tasty science lesson. Not only is this recipe FUN, the results are extra yummy!

This year our family celebrated Easter a little different – no egg hunts, no baskets full of candy & gifts. We decided to just keep it simple and instead just enjoyed a full weekend of fun family time.
