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!

I read and loved "Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates" in third grade. Of course, that was a l-o-n-g time ago!

My third grade teacher used to read Jack Tales when we had some down time. I googled it and got The Jack Tales by Richard Chase and it sounds like the same book. Funny, funny short stories.

I also don't remember at what age I read them, but I loved the Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective series by Donald J. Sobel. Natalie
