Entering the World of At-Home Learning

This isn’t really a blog post as I don’t have much time to write these days. Like many people, I am trying to keep my head above water.

Staying Sane with Kids at Home

Hi everyone!


Since all of you reading this are likely either quarantined or in some form of self-isolation, I wanted to list some frugal ideas that will hopefully keep you sane if you are also trying to work from home and/or have kids home from school.



Just a little background – I am a stay at home mom who homeschools. And I’ve got an edge – I have two boys, 7 and 5 years old. We don’t have a TV, the kids have watched one video in their entire lives (I broke down and played I want a hippopotamus for Christmas on a cross country road trip at 10 pm), and they don’t do screen time.
