  • Reading is “allowed” ( get it? get it?)

    By on February 17, 2016

    When I was growing up we didn’t have a TV. Yup, you read right! NO. TV. So when Brett makes Goonies references or discusses various early 90s cartoons I have no idea what he’s talking about.

    One of the biggest gifts to homeschool Ransom this year- other than Pinterest (ha!) has been Ransom’s piano teacher.

  • Fall Theme Homeschool edition

    By on September 26, 2015

    Well friends, apparently it is FALL….you wouldn’t know it if you got dropped into San Antonio TX and just went by the weather. It was very much in the 90s and muggy all week. I barely went outside, being all giant and pregnant and suffering from my own brand…

  • Dino Week!

    By on September 18, 2015

    This week was a really crazy week mentally for me- we had something going on nearly every evening until late-and that was hard for this pregnant mama. I am feeling the end of this pregnancy more and more. But, in the midst of all that busyness we had some really good…
