April Calendar, Free Printable

Can you believe April is almost here? How crazy has the March weather been where you are? Our fridge calendar is still working for us here so I put together a new one for April. I’ve included Easter and Earth Day and I’ll let you guys add the rest. What have you got in store … Continue reading

Art of the Week

Art of the Week

Just a quick post tonight – it’s been a crazy week! Even with all the craziness though, I wanted to share this special piece of art with you. Last week I joined my daughter’s kindergarten class on a trip to the National Air Force Museum of Canada. That morning, before we left for school, she … Continue reading

Struggles vs Strides – who will win?

Struggles vs Strides – who will win?

To say that I’ve been struggling lately would be a pretty significant understatement. I know we all struggle at times but there are some days and weeks (lets be honest – there are some years) when I feel like I never stop swimming against the tide. At the beginning of 2012, I set a challenge … Continue reading

More Animal Science

More Animal Science

In January I wrote about my daughter’s passionate declaration – she is going to be an animal scientist when she grows up! She wants to save the “astinct” animals. This conversation has come up a number of times in our house because she’s so interested in animals right now. We’re actually at the point where … Continue reading

We got through the sick, we loved the riding bikes in the great weather and I found a great … Continue reading

Manly Ingenuity meets Mom Craftiness

Manly Ingenuity meets Mom Craftiness

There are many different types of craftiness out there but, for my husband’s sake, I’ll refer to the first part of this post as Manly Ingenuity instead of craftiness. Much more masculine, don’t you think? When we moved into this house we were so excited to have a completely separate space to call our office. … Continue reading

Art Appreciation to Build Self-Esteem

Art Appreciation to Build Self-Esteem

The last few days have been filled with ups and downs here. It’s March Break and I had the days all planned out – a couple of Mom days, time at Grandma Camp, days with the babysitter and a day with a friend. Then “sick” decided to come over to play. Uninvited I assure you … Continue reading

Calming the Chaos

How often do you get to the end of a long week and realize that you didn’t do half the things you had planned? Mostly because they were forgotten while you lived through the daily craziness that is your life? All the time? Me too. I’ve been following Project Organize Your ENTIRE Life over on … Continue reading
