I spent the past 5 days manning the Imagination Station at VBS. What does that mean? I, Erin Hall was Mr. Wizard. Too old for you?..Bill Nye?…Beakman? Wow. Sid the Science Kid?!

In honor of Earth Day, I thought I’d tell you guys about a cool D. I. Y. project I did with the kids recently. About a month ago, the kids and I made flower pots from a stack of newspapers I had lying around. What I love about this particular project, is that there is […]

Over the years, our fridge and fireplace have held countless pieces the kids have made but I think it’s only fitting to share them with you as well. This is Kylie’s Gallery. All works shown here have been created and selected by my daughter to showcase here. Enjoy!

When Kylie was gearing up for the new school year, I was busy researching fancy lunches for my little girl. I imagined packing her bento box. I would get up early and cut all of her fruits into flowers. Ky would have lunchbox notes and know she was loved. Sadly, outside of having her sandwiches […]

  Knock on wood, the dead of summer has passed us by. Yesterday, it was 104 degrees and today, we’re at a lovely 84. This is the first time in months we’ve had the windows open. I can remember vividly waking up to days like this in Maryland. I’d eat breakfast, get dressed and immediately […]
