When anyone mentions they are going to visit Orlando, Florida most people automatically think of Disney. While I admit most of our time in the past has been spent at Disney when visiting Orlando, this summer we spent some time experiencing the other great things Orlando has to offer. Most of the time my kids […]

Editable Chore Cards for Kids

Today I have some Editable Cleaning Chore Cards for Kids for you that cover the entire house!

Organizing and Spring Cleaning the Laundry Room

Spring Cleaning time is here, and like other moms, I’m in full purge and spring clean mode. After winter, I’m ready for a fresh start and reset to begin the spring season and take us right on into summer. While I’d love to roll up my sleeves and dig right on in to the dust and […]

Legoland for Homeschoolers

We recently took an end of the summer trip to Florida to visit family and have a little fun. While we were there, we took some time to visit Legoland and Disney World. We had a great time of connecting as a family, with a little learning sprinkled in. As I was sharing pictures of our […]
