What If they Don’t Like Peas?

Every year during the holiday season, probably starting in November and running through December you will find local stores have collection bins for canned goods and such. This is to donate to those who may not have the food they need and it’s sad to me that we don’t have this giving personality and bins all year round.

Every year we always buy some canned goods to drop into the bins […]

Mentoring Minds Contest

Mentoring Minds is a website that offers teaching strategies for teachers, I would think that home school parents would be able to benefit from these strategies as well. I have a child, my first born to be exact, that will succeed at all standardized testing because she is that “book smart” child like I was growing up, however, these testing ways are hard on other children and I do think that my first born son (middle child) may not do well with this type of testing. I love teachers, but they must keep up with teacher education because life changes […]

In preparation of Mother’s Day I am going to share with you a story of a woman who helped me. Her name is Debbie and she was my boss back in the day when I worked outside of the home as an administrative assistant.
