Yesterday, while at school, my daughter experienced a LOCKDOWN situation When I first got the email notification, I thought it was just a routine drill. I texted the kiddo, “Hey, what’s going on at school, LOCKDOWN?” She responded immediately with a, “YES… we have no idea what’s going on.” She […]
NEW Universal Yums review UPDATED for 2021 Unique snacks from around the world!
Covid-19 has made world wide travel a less likely option these days. Whilst dreaming of jetting off to far away places, it makes me… HUNGRY! I find a great way to experience a culture or country is through the food and SNACKS. That’s why I have a subscription to Universal […]
Bees, save the bees… please! Open a BEE BAR!
If I had a bit of land, I think I’d want to have an apiary. Just a small one, nothing commercial size. I’d want to surround my hypothetical property with a decent variety of flowering trees, bushes, herbs, and plants. Build a lovely little bee friendly kingdom. However, I live […]
Homeschooling and online schooling.
I’m a proud homeschooling parent. I utilize many different forms of media to educate my child. We’ve been focusing on book work and hands on learning for the majority of the past few years of “elementary education”. We also made sure to learn cursive in second grade, and focus on […]

Homeschooling and summertime.
It’s almost the end of the year for school kids all over the United States. I’ve heard some moms and dads complain about what to do with their kids while they have off for the summertime. Sure there might be a family vacation or two, but that won’t keep the […]
Elephants in TEXAS!
I’ve always loved elephants. They were featured in a few Disney animated classics, and are part of my childhood. As a kid, I got to ride an elephant at Busch Gardens, in Florida. It was the 70’s and we weren’t as well informed as we are now. Elephants also happen […]
A sea of blue amidst the hills in Texas
Springtime in Texas is so pretty. Fortunate for us, we home school, so taking time to actually stop and smell the flowers, is part of our science lesson plans. Our primary focus this year is to learn about the state we live in, visit places along our journey, and add […]
Homeschool SPRING BREAK 2019
Spring Break is something ALL kids are excited about. Yes, even homeschool kids. Many people think that homeschooling is just sitting around in your PJ’s all day playing video games with your on line friends. Sure, for some homeschooling families, that’s life… but not us. We’re pretty much focused on […]
