Earth Day Exploration
I didn’t prepare a special post for Earth Day. It’s pretty much Earth Day everyday at our house.  But, we did get out and do some exploring and oddly enough, my son was really into getting outside yesterday.  More than usual. We went...
Wordless Wednesday
Wordless Wednesday
I’ve decided to hop on the Wordless Wednesday bandwagon. What a great way to get a post up about what were up to without dipping into time with my toddler. So, that’s all I’m saying! My favorite color and flower World's Best...
Happy Name Day (Buon Onomastico)
Happy Name Day (Buon Onomastico)
Sunday, April 18th was St. Galdino Day. We never need a reason to have a party, but a real, honest-to-goodness reason somehow validates the cake and presents! For privacy reasons, I don’t usually mention my son’s name on my blog. I call...

Signs of Spring
Signs of Spring
We have anxiously been awaiting the arrival of Spring.  Not that we expected the sun to miraculously shine all day, or see the return of our enormous bumblebees and spiders yet, but Saturday at least marked  a day we could celebrate and gave us...

Book Review:  The Case Against Homework
The Case Against Homework by Sara Bennett and Nancy Kalish Every parent should read this book! (Maybe even aunts, uncles and grandparents.) The Case Against Homework by Sara Bennett and Nancy Kalish was an eye opener. Whether your child is of...
One Burnt-Out Green Mama
One Burnt-Out Green Mama
I subscribe to many blogs. Some have environmental themes or Waldorf/homeschooling themes. I pore over blogs on green living by a plethora of green mamas to blogs on art & crafts and cooking. I usually get great information and feel connected...
