Well, Christmas vacation is over and the kids are headed back to school today. I know that there are many people excited to have the kids back in school but as a shared parenting mom of 3, I lack enthusiasm for this transition. I've enjoyed the extra hours to hang out, to hold conversations, and … Continue reading Back to School
One year of homeschooling taught me a lot about the quality of time versus the quantity of it. One hour from an eager, interested child can be worth more than a whole year of studying a subject they find uninteresting. Christmas time is my favorite time of year and I revel in the lights and … Continue reading Teachable Moments
In hind sight I should have posted this on Valentine's Day, but oh well! A few weeks ago, the kids and I went to the Michigan Science Center to attend their homeschool class.

I've always seasoned my ricotta mixture with italian seasoning and I even used eggs once upon a time (no more) and pepperoni on top. My bestie opened … Continue reading La-La-Lasagna

Michigan doesn't have anything on Wisconsin sunshine in the winter and the country air was so fresh compared to city air. Green Bay is a skip and … Continue reading Cheese Curd Country
Macaroni...er...Penne and Cheese. Who doesn't love macaroni and cheese? I am lactose intolerant and I will still throw back 2, 3, 4 lactaids to enjoy the beautiful and savory flavor of macaroni and cheese, even if it is Kraft. I am a "whole foodie" and by that I mean that I try to stay away … Continue reading Macaroni…er…Penne and Cheese
We had such an awesome day in Wyandotte on Thursday! We are just coming off of the elimination diet and today we reintroduced dairy! I used my Wyandotte dollars from the summer reading program and we got icecream from Stroh's after the farmer's market. We took a short walk and played in the fountain and … Continue reading Rainbow Baby Tastes Icecream For The First Time!
