Spring is so close. I just can’t wait. I love the snow, but I don’t like it being cold without the snow. That was always my problem with Texas winters. March is one of those iffy months in Idaho. Well to be honest, April and May are also. In March though we have more cold than we do warm. If you’ve ever lived up North, you know warm is relative. We think it’s warm when it’s 40. And the Hardworking Husband is wearing shorts when it’s 50. Menu planning can be tricky because we are anxious to be grilling more

When I showed up with the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, my mother-in-law told me the
We normally don’t do anything for St. Patrick’s Day. I dress my oldest son in green so he doesn’t get pinched at school and my younger kids in green so they don’t get pinched by him. But this year, I thought I’d change things up a bit and at least make a special dessert. I figured I better try it out early to make sure it was tasty (and really, who minds eating something yummy twice?). Maybe I’ll even look for a craft or fun activity to do with the kids too. St. Patrick’s Day Parfait: Lime Pound Cake (Personal

Join us for the Preschool Prep series, where I delve into the steps to take to prepare yourself for teaching preschool homeschool! I am planning to homeschool my kids, and I would like to start Miss Magoo with preschool this fall, since she turns 4 in November. However, since I’m having a baby at the beginning of August, I figured I’d better get started on preparation for the homeschooling preschool school year before I get wrapped up in a brand new baby. Since I’m usually a procrastinator, I know that if I don’t get things started right away, I’ll be
Yes, the song from the Sound of Music is on repeat in my brain. And these are new to me, but they may not be new to you. I know I am sometimes late to the party like with hummus or Greek yogurt. 1. PicMonkey – I’m having so much fun making collages, adding texts to pictures and messing with effects. 2. Anything to do with chickens. We are embarking on a new adventure of having chickens in our backyard and I’m having fun reading up on them. This post about Caring for baby chicks is especially helpful since that’s the stage we are at.
