Weathering the Storm

No better euphemism could apply to my life than this over the past few months. You see, so much has happened to our family since April of this year. We like to believe that everything in this life happens for a reason, whether divine or not, we like to think mostly divine; the experiences we [...]

Cleaning is always such a task. In a home with three kids, two dogs and one husband, cleaning seems to be happening all the time. Messes are on the regular and some messes require a bit more elbow grease, for lack of a better term. So when messes happen and they require a bit more [...]

Winning Moves has an excellent selection of games to help keep the kids occupied without losing their attention. Plus, they [...]
