Kid Life

All about E & B! This page is dedicated to Ella and Beckett, my little sunshines! (most of time, unless their thunderstorms…we have those days)

Ella is a heart warrior who teaches us how to give 110% in everything we do. She keeps us on our toes…from crafts to costumes…she is such a joy to be around. 

Beckett is, well just Beckett. Competitive, softhearted, smart and loving…he will challenge you and love you all in the same breath. Raising boys is something else, I’m sure some of you can relate. This momma needs some help. 

The most memorable thing we’ve done with our kids was a spontaneous trip last year where we home schooled them for a semester, rented out the house, and traveled around Europe for a few months. Our kids really opened up, learned about the world, made new friends, and experienced life and cultures outside of the walls of school. Before you ask, it wasn’t that expensive and we had some tricks that made it even easier to do! I’m happy to share our experiences and tips from the trip. Just ask or sign up for the email list!

The Solution for all the unanswered School Problems

 If you’re like me, teaching your kids during a pandemic was not something I learned in school, nor do I have a degree in education. This past year we’ve tried a little bit of everything to keep the kids on track, from beginning with a zoom classroom, to homeschooling, to even back in the regular […]
