You could even just print it out, and have it on hand for some inspiration. Share it with your friends, and see what piques your interest, add or take away.

Tips For Going Back To School With A Young Family

Disclaimer: I'm not a professional, I'm writing this from the perspective of a mom/wife whose husband got his masters while we had two little kids. I've been meaning to sit down and pen my best thoughts on returning to school with young kids for over a year now.  So, here I am, finally doing just that.  So, most of you know my husband left his job as a Civil Engineer Corps Officer in the Navy to get an MBA back…

The “Advice” I’d Give New Parents.

Can You Afford A Family Vacation This Year?

I did not grow up going on family vacations.  A family vacation for us was eating inside of the restaurant as opposed to only picking up our 39 cents Wednesday burgers through the drive thru.  My husband grew up with frugal parents who opted to travel more.  We knew that regular travel would be something of priority in our family's culture, and we are always looking for creative ways to make it happen.  Like everything else in our lives, we…

Homeschool ideas for a Wrinkle In Time!

Disclosure: We were actually given a book from Disney Press and four free movies to watch a wrinkle in time in theaters at the conference we recently attended (Disney Social Media Moms) we were not asked to write about anything and paid a nominal fee to attend.  All opinions expressed are my own! Honestly, A Wrinkle In Time is a book for kids a bit older than my preschoolers, but we love to stretch outside of our comfort zones and…
