This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kids II. All opinions are 100% mine. Hey friends! Today I’m sharing a car themed reward chart that I originally designed for a friend and then I used it with my middle child (who is now 6) as well! I decided to print a…

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Office Depot. All opinions are 100% mine. Back to school is in full swing at my house!  This year I really wanted to simplify our homework routine by making sure that all the homework items are easily accessible and organized!  Our evenings get busy between…

We’re about a month into summer and I’ve been pretty happy with how our morning routine has been going.  We’ve been using Lisa’s Daily 5 Routine that she posted about last year!  However, I…

I have a confession, I am in a war against stuff! It started about a year and half ago when my husband took me to the Philippines to visit where he lived for 2 years. I had seen poverty before many times, but nothing like this. They had less “stuff” than anyone I have ever…
