4 simple steps to stress free homemaking
I am documenting these homemade Easter pies as Internet proof that miracles do in fact sometimes happen in my kitchen! Considering I couldn’t make pasta when I got married, I can’t stop bursting with pride over these babies. 

A homeschooling lifestyle adds even more to the challenges of everyday homemaking: laundry, meal planning, organizing, and cleaning.

Does staying on top of piles of clothes needing to be folded, the ever-flowing cycles of dishes in and out of the sink, and the decision fatigue of dinner plans get you down sometimes?

Up until now we’ve talked about looking at math differently, what that practically looks like for other families, children, and experts, and how to use books to increase our young children’s love of and exposure to math.

A different way to look at math

Much of the research we’ve peeked at suggests waiting until around age 10, give or take, to introduce formal math. (I’m not saying this is the only way to approach it, by the way! It’s one of many intentional possibilities.)
