Joshua Tree Camping Party

I’m a little annoyed, because Chase was the one who put this idea on the table in the first place and Tegan is the one that loved it.  I was just the one who booked, planned, and finalized everything, and now I’m the one being criticized for going through with a party in the middle…

Reflecting through the growth & time of being (and becoming) Mom

I had no idea what being a mini-mom was going to be like, or that family life was what I was missing, that loving and being loved by people who didn’t have to be someone other than themselves and worked together to move the group along, calmed my heart and cleared my head. Chase had…

Throwback: January 2017

Dad never buys me churros. When he does buy a churro, it’s for himself. A crush is basically when you’re in a relationship with a person, but they don’t know that they’re in a relationship with you. Oh then I kind of have a crush with Lin-Manuel Miranda. Mother daughter lockets. I would like that,…

Homeschool: Setting Up a Space

Gazing through Pinterest, I was stoked on setting up some magnificently adorable home classroom.  Turns out, you move around a lot throughout the school-year.  When one location became stagnant, and as the curriculum evolved, we would move.  We began in a dedicated homeschool space, decorated with banners and a calendar and a weather chart, partitioned…

What happened between last October and Now?

It was still a wild ride, but I noticed this year has been the most settled. Each year on my birthday, I look back and I…
