    Making Science Fun With Legends of Learning

    **Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post with Legends of Learning. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    This summer, I had the opportunity to really explore different curriculums to make a more educated opinion on what I would be using for Mini’s schooling this year.

    My Epic Homeschool Bullet Journal Set Up

    Three journals later, I’m still using my bullet journal and loving it! Last year I should have done this but with a new baby and still trying to figure out homeschool life, I didn’t but I finally have. Have what? I’ve set up a homeschool bullet journal! I knew that I wanted to have a homeschool planner but we follow a more eclectic style and I couldn’t find something that met both my needs and their needs so I created one.

    It is so important to teach children to swim at a young age. When they're young, they have no fear and are curious. Here's how to teach them to swim.

    I live in a town where a river passes through it. Creeks were in my backyard and lakes only miles away. My brother and I were always surrounded by water. And we loved it. You couldn’t keep me out of the water when I was little. Now that I am a parent, I made sure to teach my children how to swim as soon as they were ready. Here’s how I believe you can teach children to swim.

    How To Learn To Unplug To Be Present For Life’s Greatest Moments

    Have you ever picked up your cell phone right after your alarm goes off and start browsing your notifications only to realize that several hours have gone by? Let’s be honest, it’s easy to get caught up in the rabbit hole of intriguing Instagram stories (we know this is one of Aaronica’s favorite things to do!) and the constant Facebook updates from friends and family. We unknowingly live our regular lives through the lives of our best friends in our heads on social media rather than creating those amazing moments ourselves. Learn to unplug–it’s becoming a necessity. Continue reading

    Living With Intention–My Birthday Present To Myself

    After turning 35 I'm ready to make a change--one that includes living with intention. Here I share the changes I'm making to live with intention.

    On Friday, July 20 I turned the big 35. I’m not sitting here freaking out over getting older. After seeing all the youthful faces at my family reunion, I’m not concerned with wrinkles or looking older.

    I can’t count how many times I’ve been asked if black people need to wear sunscreen. At the same time, I can’t count how many times I’ve had sunburn. It’s a common misconception that black people don’t burn in the sun and that we don’t need sunscreen. We do. Everyone does.

    I’m a wannabe country girl who can’t give up the city so when I had the opportunity to hang out with some dairy cows on one of Organic Valley’s farms, I jumped at the chance. I’m still breastfeeding BC and while I was away from him, I was on the pump. Naturally as I hung out with the dairy cows, I realized that they had quite a few things in common with nursing moms.

    20 Toddler Friendly Summer Bucket List Ideas

    Summer is my favorite time of year. Having a toddler can be a little difficult which is why we came up with 20 Toddler-Friendly Summer Bucket List Ideas!

    Summer is my favorite time of year. The days are longer, the fruit is better, and this is the perfect season to make those family memories that will bring about nostalgia for many years to come.
