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!

Family Fun - Spades

With the Hearts card game being such a big hit in our house, I'm going to try to teach the older kids to play Spades.  It's a little more complex with the bidding element and the partner play, but it's worth a shot.  I spent hours playing Spades in high school and college.  I'm hoping this will be one more option for entertainment when the kids get older - a way to keep older kids happily engaged on bus trips with sports teams, hanging out with friends, or at the pool.  A good positive alternative instead of getting into trouble!
