What in the world is a wimmelbook? I'm so glad you asked! Because I didn't know either, and now I don't feel so stupid since you were wondering, too.
Those Pivotal Days
Have you ever contemplated how quickly life can change? Many changes are slow and gradual, but occasionally events come along that happen so unexpectedly and instantaneously… and change our lives forever. During this whole crisis that has been 2020, I’ve thought a lot about other challenging events throughout history and how our ancestors managed to survive those times. Or maybe…
Review: The Genius Square Game
The Genius Square is a game I'll be keeping handy this summer to play on the front porch for a quick and relaxing challenge. Check out my review.
Review: You Can Draw It in Just 30 Minutes
Remember the acrylic painting kit I reviewed a few weeks ago? I mentioned we had been dabbling with different mediums in art. Today’s review focuses on pencil sketching.

I’ve always admired pencil sketching, particularly the artwork of Garth Williams, classic illustrator of the Little House on…

If your kids aren’t used to free play in the backyard you may wonder how to engage them and keep them occupied and interested in staying out there. It’s easier than you might think! Your…
The True Homeschool Expert
Often I speak with parents who find themselves second-guessing decisions they have made regarding their children's education. Obviously, most of us homeschool our children for a reason. Perhaps we feel called to homeschool, or maybe we just feel it is in the best interest of our children.
Review: Dot-to-Dot Philadelphia
Since I live “out west” I haven’t had many opportunities to visit historical and cultural sites on the east coast. In fact, I’ve only ever been to Pennsylvania once. We spent one day in Philadelphia and visited Independence Square and other sites with significance to early American history. When I was offered the opportunity to review the We Are Connected…
