Keystone Science School: A Unique Summer Camp for Everyone

    While I feel as though this summer has flown by, the months and weeks leading up to Spider Monkey Camp at Keystone Science School for J (age 8) and P (age 6) seemed to crawl terribly slow. I had fears of someone breaking an arm or getting sick (we battled Strep Throat the week before) […]

    Women Gearing Up for Summer + Giveaway

      We are in the height of the summer…..and heat! Honestly, not my favorite time of the year. I would much rather be cold than hot….and I despise applying (and reapplying) sunscreen on myself and my kids. This summer I rounded up my favorite go-to styles and products that have helped me stay cool, get out […]

      Happy Baby Carrier for Comfortable Summer Baby Wearing

        There is literally not a day that goes by that I do not have a baby on my back. M still refuses to walk, even at 17 months, and with a herd of kids, it’s much easier for me to throw her on my back and have hands free to wrangle the other three. I […]

          Setting our families up for life-long success starts HERE, at home.

          Plantar Fasciitis Relief with Vionic Shoes

            After M was born last February, I was anxious to get back moving after 10 weeks of being told to “take it easy” to prevent her coming early. With a history of two premies, it was the sort of advice I had finally learned to take seriously (only took me 4 kids to figure it […]

              10 Ways to Help Kids Sleep While Camping

                The number one question we get about camping as a family is how to get babies and kids to sleep. We’re sleep deprived as it as as parents with little ones, right!? Why in the world would we jeopardize that even further by taking everyone camping!?! While there are obviously other concerns, if we step […]

                Hey Dads! Your Kids Are Watching!

                  While Father’s Day is officially celebrated on just one Sunday, I like to really focus the entire week on celebrating all that dads are for their kids. It’s pretty huge. And honestly, our Father’s Day sort of had a lot kids whining AT their father (the most annoying sound in the world, right?!?!), so they/we […]
