We’re back with another post in this series, and this time we’re partying it up uh, I mean walking like the Egyptians.
Next up in our timeline in artists through the ages were the people of Egypt. And honestly, their lifestyles were so intriguing that everything they did was art. But we chose
Lately, Malone (our youngest) has been asking for some fresh flash cards for the alphabet. You can see our first ones here, and while they were intended for decoration, I realized we could spiff them up a bit to have a bit of a multifunctional purpose. These are the first set, remixed a bit, if
Recently, we got a note from a reader named Sasha. It went a little something like this:
…I loved your post last week on the homeschool space update. The room alone is enough to get my wheels turning. We are thinking of making the transition in the fall with our children and was wondering h
