Just. Let. Them. Play.

Not that I want to rant or anything (no drama zone, I promise), but please, allow me to express the feelings on my heart about some of the major and serious changes I have seen in education over the years. I am blessed, in many ways, because my oldest daughter is ten years older than [...]

Why I REALLY should just take up stock in Bubble Wrap…

If you have been a reader for long, it will absolutely come as no surprise to you for me to tell that I always fall into the 1% category when it comes to getting hurt in the silliest of ways. Years ago, I almost broke both my ankles by taking a highly un-entertaining, and super [...]

Ditch Every Chemical Cleaner in your house with ONE product…..
