Five years ago, my family found ourselves in a bind. My husband had just accepted a new teaching job, about three hours away from where we lived at the time, and school started in just two weeks!
We packed up all our things, put our two kids in the car, and left town! Just one problem. Nobody wanted to buy our house!
We bought the home (our very first!) back in 2009, and lived there for three years before my husband accepted the new job. We secured a rental home in our new city and moved. But our house just sat and sat.

I’m not even joking when I say that they could probably use these exact same backpacks from Kindergarten, all the way until they graduate from high school. They… [Read More]
The smell of the salt water, the ocean breeze blowing your hair, the sound of flip flops on a boardwalk… Vacations can be so recharging, but inevitably the day comes when we have to return home! We just got back from a pretty epic summer road trip, and I know what happens next: the post-vacation… [Read More]
With all the patriotic holidays this time of year, you may be wondering how you can honor the significance of the day…before firing up the grill! I’m going to show you how you can easily put together a flag ceremony that involves the whole family and helps teach the younger ones what these special days are all about.
Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day… My family, as many others, enjoys celebrating these days with parades, picnics, bbqs, and fireworks. But amidst the partying, it’s nice to take a moment to remember why we are celebrating.

It only takes a bit of imagination to have fun in the pool, but here are some of our favorite pool party games that we like to play.
