Yesterday it snowed, and today the warmth of the close Colorado sun melted it away. You can imagine the puddles! My kids were overjoyed to to get outside. I peeked out my window, while cleaning the kitchen, to spot Shailo jumping in the largest puddle. I decided to put aside my cleaning and pick up… Continue reading Spring Puddle Fun.
We’re now a month into what’s called the Wild Explorers Club, and let me tell you, it has been a blast. We heard about it when introduced to the Wild and Free Children, which is equally amazing! Unfortunately, I can’t find any groups locally. But that didn’t discourage us, we decided to do it on… Continue reading Wild Explorers (Club)
This sweet little lady turned 2 this February. TWO?! That happened so fast. Everly is full of beauty and joy, she’s both sweet and sassy, our little wildflower.

(artwork by Katie Daisy) Many have asked what happened, why are we moving AGAIN, didn’t we… Continue reading Moving on.

He learned to read and spell and how to tell time (and more) in that short time. Beyond… Continue reading Last Day of LHC.
My boys have a Wild Kratt obsession. And I have got to say, this is one that I love! Have you seen Wild Kratts? It’s a PBS kids show that comes from a show my siblings and I watched as kids called Zoboomafoo. The Kratt Brothers were far younger (obviously) in it, but my boys… Continue reading Wild Kratts + their Baby Panda
