Sticker wallpaper

So my daughter invited us up to her place to help her redecorate. We've put in new flooring, painted walls and trim, and are putting up wainscoting, shelves, mounting the television, and a feature...

When my kids were in an area wide...

It's been my experience

That good homeschooling is gives children a superior education to public school. It's the best of differentiation, after all! And the home schooled student waits for no other student. Did you see...

There's a cool spoon

for Parkinson's sufferers that adjusts to the shakiness of the user. It's pretty expensive. Something someone might not buy for themselves but find pretty useful. (Or is that like buying someone a...

Not exactly an empty room

If teachers are assigned to the rooms. It might be empty when you go in, but they might have plans for those rooms during the time you're in there. The best policy would be to ask first.

I would...

When I had kids at home

they had a night, starting fairly young. I had five kids cooking at the best of times, and one night was pizza night, leaving me to cook only once a week.

It wasn't gourmet cooking by any stretch...

I do mine

I found it offensive.

While the OP might have liked that facebook post, I don't.

The idea that it's free candy day so shut up and give out the candy is just plain rude.

While I agree with the basic premise that...

I think you have to know yourself

I've been invited two times this year to think about going into administration. (Never before this year.) Both times, I've told them that I love what I'm doing right now, and that I don't think I...

I'd be looking for another job.

We raised 5 children

for many years on my husband's military pay. My oldest was 13 before I went to work, and my youngest was 5. I was a stay at home mom for all those years.

Rings are your friend

If you're going to have to post learning targets, find out first if your principal is looking for standards, standards in "kid-friendly language" and/or "I can" statements.

Favorite Nativity Set
