Bring it on Homeschool! I know we are all exhausted and sad now that we know all in person school for Louisiana students will not resume for this school year. I'm sure you are rolling your eyes and cracking open...
There is no better time to delve into a good book than a moment of free time and a need to relax or escape. I've always loved reading and can remember the first chapter books my teachers would read...
As we officially receive the announcement from our governor for the closures of all Louisiana schools for the 2019-2020 school year, my brain is reeling. Where do we go from here? Yes we've addressed the social aspects. The missed...
I guess that most topics to discuss right now are pretty much all tinted by the worldwide present situation of quarantine and uncertainty. One thing I noticed (on myself, at least) is the back and forth of being grateful and...
What a crazy, unexpected and unprecedented few weeks this has been. If you had told any of us that we'd be homeschooling kids through the end of the school year just a few short months ago, I think most...
Do you remember middle school?  I remember everything but seventh grade. It’s gone. It’s lost forever in a void dominated by glasses, braces, pre-algebra, colorful Gelly Roll pens, and emotions (so many emotions).  Bits and pieces of middle-school-me survived, though… and,...

One-on-One Time With four kids, it sometimes gets tough to find dedicated 1:1 time. Roll that in with the expense of a large family and experiences aren't always up for grabs. I'm so grateful for each of my children and...
I am a competitive person. I played sports throughout my school years and continued coaching and playing volleyball multiple times a week as a young professional. I only stopped when I became too pregnant to continue competing, and now...
I have two kids in elementary school, and since kindergarten, we have been having homework. While in kindergarten it wasn’t included in the grade, but now in first grade and up it is a different story. Science proves that homework...
Thanksgiving Feast Day A few months ago it was Thanksgiving Feast day at my four-year-old's school. This day was a culmination of many weeks of learning about autumn. We were to create corn husk dolls, make butter and eat a...

"Hurry up!” “We have to go!” “Come on, get in the car!” These are phrases I say way too often to my three children. On weekdays from sun up to sun down, I feel like we are mentally and physically running a...
