Last month, Will and I began slashing through our budget. We reduced our cable package. We thoughtfully planned each outing as well as our meals. Then, we did the unthinkable… we surrendered our rental furniture. The only places to sit now were around the dining room table and upstairs. Our king sized bed had been […]

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?! Growing up, my brother and I loved these shows but for this generation, once you out grow Sid, it’s slim pickins.   I […]

[xt_video type=”vimeo” clip_id=”64323778″ width=”500″ height=”281″ title=”Kylie reads Snack Time”][xt_br] In late September, I was bewildered that my kindergarten daughter had been assigned books to read every night for class.

We’ve been going to the Allen Public Library for an entire year now and I just discovered they have music cds for kids. Ridiculous, right? Outside of a few Baby Einstein albums and the occasional Raffi reference, we rarely listened to kid music. I probably would never had considered it until I caught my 5 […]

On back to school night 2012, amid the countless hand outs I received, was a page labeled “Turn Trash into Cash”. Clever I thought.

Today, is my son’s 4th birthday. 4. Yeah, really. I have no idea where the time went but God help me, I will be doing a better job at documenting it. One of the really great ideas I’ve seen floating around on Pinterest is that of the birthday interview. For the most part, it’s a […]

For years, we had been telling Kylie she could go to preschool when she was 3. Truthfully, she could have gone earlier if we had had the money but for Kylie, the magic number was 3. Then we moved to Texas and in Texas, the magic number is not 3. It’s 4 and that 4 […]

Eric was constantly in trouble. His grades were terrible. I was always the “Golden Child”. I could do no wrong. My grades were effortless and at that time, I had no sympathy for his antics. When Eric’s report card showed C’s or above, he was praised and we would go out for pizza. If I […]
