Random Acts of Kindness Every Day

The official (or unofficial, depending on who you ask) Random Acts of Kindness Day was this past weekend. It’s a day set aside for people to do something nice for someone else…to get the ball rolling, so to speak, and hope that the recipient(s) of your kind acts will pay it forward. But why stop after the official day? Why […]

Our Sixth Grade Reading List

My sixth grader loves to read and I’m so thankful for that. She reads so much, however, that it’s hard for me to preview enough books for her. I haven’t always been super picky about what I allow her to read. I would just pick up whatever looked fun from the library. It wasn’t until serious issues with a poor […]

Free Guitar Lessons for Beginners and Kids

Over the years my kids have expressed an interest in learning several different instruments – guitar, piano, ukelele, recorder, violin…just to name a few! I quickly found that private lessons can get very expensive! It’s frustrating to hand over so much money only to have your kid come to you weeks later and announce they are no longer interested in […]

The World of Roald Dahl Unit Study
