Why I Support Sex Ed in Schools (A Conservative Mother’s View)


Preface: This is a post I didn’t intend to write.  It started as a way to get my frustrations and thoughts out of my head.  Then, it kind of just turned into this post/article/piece of writing that I really wanted to share.  I sat on it for two weeks, deciding what to do.  Every night, I tossed and turned, wondering what to do.  It was something I really wanted to say, but was this the place for it?  If not, where {Read More}

Duck Tape Bookmark

Duck Tape Bookmarks - a fun and easy kids craft!

    I have tio give credit where credit is due – this ide actually came from my daughter.  She was running out the door to the bus and needed a bookmark.  She grabbed the closest thing she could use – her roll of bacon duck tape – folded it over, and went on her way.  I naturally thought, “That’s such a cute idea for a bookmark!”  and when she came home, her and I got to work creating some {Read More}

Well, well…look who’s crawled back to the blog from the land of the ill.  It’s me!  Seriously, between the girls and I, we just can’t break away from this cold!  Add having to buy all new furniture for our basement so we look like adults and not college students who dragged our furniture home from the dump, and I have been out for the count.  It’s good to be back with a project to share with you!

I taught kindergarten before moving to Ontario, and I often teach it here as well, along with Junior Kindergarten.  Often times, the social aspect of learning is even more than the academic learning, and when I think of good apps and stories for my own daughter (also of JK age), I tend to look for ones that will teach good interpersonal skills. That’s why I love these new apps from Napkin Man.  Have you ever seen The Adventures of Napkin {Read More}
