    Global Tiger Day

    Today I want to bring awareness to something that is important. This blog post may be disheartening, but hopefully, by the end, you will leave with a sense of hope and some tools to help undo the devastating decimation of a particularly beautiful animal. The Tiger. July 29th is International Tiger Day. I know there has been a bombardment of various ‘holidays’ and dates coined by companies trying to push something or sell a product. This is different. This is concerning an issue that affects our earth and our ecosystem and our future. The Facts: According to the WWF there are only 3900 wild tigers left in the world. That’s…

    Do You Use YouTube To Homeschool?

    Some families have the no-or-limit screen policy, some use screens just for school or just for fun. We use screens for learning and fun in the format of YouTube videos. But, I do limit their use including days with no screens at all: no tv, no video or phone games, no iPad, no computer. Sometimes, all of us need a break from technology in order to reconnect with the Earth and ourselves. With that being said, I have found tablets to be a wonderful addition to our homeschooling routine. When we learn about geography or animals or historical landmarks, few resources can grab my child’s attention in an interactive way.…

    Getting Out In Nature

    There is no place on this earth that doesn’t have beauty and experience to offer. Sometimes, we get so involved in our daily responsibilities that we don’t stop and make time to go out and soak it in. As parents, it is our duty to ensure we equip our children with all the tools for them to grow into healthy adults and build a life of their own. THAT is our legacy. We live on through our children by what we’ve passed down to them. In order to do this, we must step outside. We must feel and learn and grow from nature. I know it is challenging to make…

    Summertime

    Is school out for summer at your house? Growing up, I never had a concept of a ‘real kid’ summer. I had divorced parents, which meant two different households. All school year, I lived with my Mom, and for the summer, I went to my Dad’s. It was bittersweet because on the one hand, I missed all of my school friends (and would get quite jealous when I came back after summer break and heard about all the fun and wonderful adventures they had without me), but summers with my Dad were awesome because we took A LOT of trips and I got to see much of our beautiful country…
