I've been a little overwhelmed, and it's okay. With all that is going on, not being okay is just fine. Recently, I have been helping my mom after having her foot surgery, making sure to help supply what she needed...

Okay, friends. Time to check in on everyone and their foray into the world of homeschooling. We are on day #3498 of distance learning, and boy, do I have some revelations. What is working? What has been...
I’m going to be honest with you. During the early days of social distancing, in the aftermath of no-more-school-for-the-rest-of-the-year, while I digested this new normal, all of the color-coded schedule, science experiment, creative art project, colorful driveway posts on...
