WACO-Why I Substitue Teach.

Why I Substitute Teach

“Would you like to sign up for our substitute teacher list?” In a few weeks, my one and only was starting school when this question was asked.  I was interested even though I wasn’t sure how my new life would look or what kind of extra time I would have.  And if they called and […]

The New Kindergarten

Lately I’ve been noticing something… Kindergarten is not what it used to be. My memories of Kindergarten looked quite differently.  Recess two or three times a school day.  Centers where we played house, built castles with blocks, or stacked those plastic cubes.  Gluing noodles to every letter in the alphabet.

Why Boredom is Good for Your Child

“I’m bored.”  It’s summertime, and I would bet most parents have heard that line a time or two…or one hundred…a few times a day.  I have to admit, when my little one says this, it sometimes gets under my skin.  I pity myself and wish I could be bored for just a little bit!  Well, maybe […]

How to Host a Backyard BBQ

Since the beginning of our marriage, my husband and I have loved to hang out in the backyard to grill and BBQ.  Every Friday evening, no matter the weather, you would find us chillin’ and grillin’ (me the first, the second my husband) (I don’t even know how to light the grill!).  Bundled up, trying […]
