Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Snacks with an Educational Twist

We had fun with our snacks this week. I gave the kids 5 different types of snacks to count and shape into a pattern on top of shiny aluminum foil plates.

They counted 2 miniature marshmallows, 3 mini vanilla wafers, then filled out the circles with strawberry shredded wheat, craisins and peanuts. My 6yr old counted up the high #s, but my 3yr old just practiced the patterns. They got a healthy snack and had fun learning.

Oh, and I had time to drink a cup of coffee while supervising!
