Eating better as a family in two easy steps

A few years ago, I had the most horrible rash known to mankind. It started as a small, itchy patch that I took for bug bites. But then it grew bigger and other patches started popping up until my whole body was covered with it.

I went to the doctor, who quizzed me and determined that I was allergic to the new dog living in my home.

I went to the allergist, who examined me under a microscope, and declared I had scabies.

I went to the dermatologist, who took one look at my arms, and he said it was obviously eczema. While they all prescribed me ointments (I declined the scabies treatment) that offered relief of my symptoms, not one of them offered any long term solutions to the problem. I was still breaking out and scratching myself bloody. Something had to be done.

Why we practice life skills summers

Written by Kara Anderson of Quill and Camera.

It was a few years ago now that we had our very first life skills summer. And it all began really simply.

I made each of my kids a morning checklist:

  • Get dressed
  • Brush teeth
  • Brush hair
  • Make bed

My daughter was a pre-reader at the time, so we made her a picture checklist. And for the three months between our regular co-op meetings, from the end of May until early September, we practiced the items on the list every day.

Until it became automatic.

Until all I had to say was “Ok guys! Do your checklists!” and everyone knew what I meant.

What was remarkable, though, was how much this one little thing helped us when the school year started up again.

Experimenting with paperless home organization
Written by Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool and Steady Mom

This bundle sale has ended, but you can still buy Mystie’s book individually from her site!

Have you made the permanent switch from paper planners, homemaking binders, and calendars to digital ones?

I have to admit – I’m not sure I’m ready to go entirely digital.

One of the things that holds me back from making a complete switch is the time needed to research the right apps and tools and figure out how to implement them.

That’s why I was excited to read the ebook Paperless Home Organization by Mystie Winckler.

Conquering clutter for homeschoolers

Written by Amida of Journey into Unschooling.

Chinese New Year is just around the corner and for me, it means a massive purge session. Something about the upcoming New Year always brings on the urge for me to clean, clean, clean.

Out with the old and in with the — well, hopefully, nothing!

This time around, I am determined to keep the Stuff at bay and out of my house.

Just seeing the amount of things that have snuck in and filled up all corners of my home is enough to make me think twice about my spending and acquiring habits (because in actuality, a lot of things enter in the form of gifts, freebies, and deals-too-good-to-pass-up).

Want to join me in cleaning out the clutter?

If so, grab your gloves and 30-gallon heavy duty bags and favorite playlist. It’s time to purge!

3 ways simplifying might save your sanity

Kari-347picmoThe following is a post from contributor Kari Patterson of Sacred Mundane.

I have this fantasy of fleeing into the far-off woods and living off-grid. In my (unrealistic) fantasy we live off the land with no iPhones, no trips to Costco, no internet, nothing.

Whenever this dream crops up my husband shakes his head and patiently waits for it to pass. It always does. We love our life in this crazy world, even if at times it feels dizzying.

Between leading a church, traveling to speak, writing a book, keeping a blog, managing a (full) house, and homeschooling, there are days when my goal of “simple” seems to laugh in my face.

Nothing about life, really, is simple.

But that’s why, in this busy, hectic world, simplifying isn’t just a fun idea, it’s vital.

It’s necessary for our sanity. The ways in which we simplify will vary for us all, but we all must make simplification choices if we’re going to keep our homes without losing our minds.

Here are 3 simple ways we have simplified, and why they’ve made a world of difference for this dizzy mama.
