Off to the Races

With the holidays behind us, many people are making New Year’s resolutions and considering their goals for 2016. Most of us set goals to adopt healthier habits. However, a handful of people have made it their New Year’s goal to get something from you: your vote! That’s right. The 2016 election cycle is now in full-swing. For political junkies, the endless speeches, opinion polls, and 24-hour coverage of the candidates are welcome fodder for conversation.

Most Wonderful Time

It's the most wonderful time of the year! That song plays over and over in my head during the month of December. Truly, the holidays are my family's favorite time of the year. With Thanksgiving behind us, Christmas and New Year's before us, we can't help but celebrate! The atmosphere is electric with brilliant color, cooperation, and kindness. 

Slump Busters

The time has arrived. It comes every year pretty much like clockwork. You know, that slump between the excitement of a new school year and the much needed and anticipated holiday break. In our homeschool, it starts after Halloween, and it affects mom and child equally. Can you relate? When this slump arrives, we have a “throw it all out the window day,” and our typical day takes a backseat to games. Over the years, I have come across some great and educational games (to me, educational =  hours!) and wanted to share some of our favorites.
