I don’t know about you but the weather around here has definitely turned very cold! We LOVE hot cocoa at our house this time of year, but I HATE all of the nasty ingredients in store bought cocoa mix. Plus, there can be a lot of sugar in those mixes which is no bueno for […]

Have you ever felt like a cup? Sometimes you feel like your cup overflows and other times you find your cup dry. Very, very dry. That was me last week. An empty cup with nothing left to give. I don’t tell you this to have you feel sorry for me. I’m sharing this with you […]

Dear Savvy Homeschooler- My mother-in-law is a teacher at a public school and when I told her I was considering homeschooling my kids she told me that when formerly-homeschooled kids come into her classroom they are always behind.

Do you get any tax breaks at all since your kids don’t attend public school?   Dear Cha-Ching, This is a great question, but the answer varies greatly. The amount I spend each year totally depends on the budget we set […]

Tim Ballard and his team go undercover to rescue children that have been sold into slavery and child exploitation. I have had the opportunity to hear Tim Ballard speak.

Today on Facebook, a mom vocalized her concern about her children not getting the same experience as public schoolers. What sparked this concern was she was sitting in an empty park during the middle of the day while her children played on the playground. She started to think that her children might be happier on a […]
