Teaching {pure joy}

When I was little I used to go all around the neighborhood and round up other children to play school with me. It is no surprise to me how much I have loved teaching my own children. What has been so much fun and unexpected is all the incredible opportunities I have had over the past 1 1/2 years to teach other women. I love talking and connecting with women from all over and creating together. While I was in …

I think back on some of the boys that stole my heart long before Kelly. Wonderful boys…..just not the right boy. Boys that have grown up to be another persons …

Chocolate Chip Scones (yummy)

I do not bake a lot. I do not bake a lot because I don’t want to weigh 400 pounds. I do bake about once a week.  I really love making fresh gluten free breads and the occasional sweet treat. One of the regular treats baked around here are chocolate chip scones made from almond flour. My children gobble them up like crazy…also keep in mind that I don’t bake a lot:-) I truly believe my children’s palate has changed …

Product Highlights {of our school year}

I often get emails from readers wondering what curriculum etc. we use for school. Over the years I have come to really enjoy putting our curriculum together…where as when we started (6 years ago) I bought an all inclusive curriculum. I love the freedom that putting my own curriculum together gives and I truly believe I am picking the best in each subject for my children. There has been wonderful games, books, videos etc that we use each year that …
