When you think you have it all together and your kid thinks you suck you got yourself a big fat “Mom Fail”.

One month into homeschooling and I apparently have not been doing as great as a job as I thought. Nothing ails a parent more than to see your child upset and when it’s your fault it’s even more disheartening.

Have you ever encountered this in parenting or in homeschooling? What happened and how did you handle with your child?

And just like that, my boys learned how to barter.

I guess I was called over to supervise their transaction. Who says it’s too early to learn Business 101 at home?

Some days I want to throw in the towel at the darndest things my kids do, but on most days I just grab the camera and think, “you’ll look back at these moments and laugh with joy.” So here are more moments captured for my pleasure…and for yours.

Mission: Family Organization

Family Organization Center

Family that plans together, stays together

letter ORDER
Let’s get organized family!

I was recently asked by my dear friend Lori Avery what I do to stay organized with all my family activities. Though I had my little system in tacked, I thought, why not tweak it a little to make it easier and neater. Hence, here is our new and improved family organization center.
