A New Kind of Healthcare Experience with American Well

AmWell nutritionist review

Last week, I had met with a nutritionist about my weight loss goals – from the comfort of my favorite chair in the living room. She went over my daily eating habits with me, gave suggestions, and answered all my questions, and it all happened over the internet thanks to American Well. Take a look […]

Pine Cone Bird Feeder Craft

DIY pine cone bird feeders - Simple and fun to make!

When I was a little girl, my mom had a red plastic bird feeder that she kept full of bird seed all winter long. She hung it in the large bush adjacent to our living room window, and all we had to do to watch the birds was sit down on the couch. I remember […]

How to Celebrate a Christian Passover Meal for Preschoolers

How to Host A Christian Passover Seder Meal with Preschoolers

On the Thursday before Easter, Jesus celebrated the Passover with his disciples. They broke bread and drank wine, a gesture that we now commemorate in communion. But that Passover meal, what was that about? Last year, I wanted to start a tradition with my kids that we would observe Passover, share a meal with friends that […]

Scavenger Hunt for Early Readers

Scavenger Hunt for Early Readers

One of Grace and Allie’s favorite activities is to have a scavenger hunt. Once Grace started to read independently, scavenger hunts at our house took on a whole new level of fun. The kids could do them without my help, and I could create more complex hunts with better hiding places.

Writing a Letter {Preschool Activity}

Preschool activity writing letters

Everyone loves to get mail. I know not a single person who lacks excitement when she opens her mailbox to find a real note addressed with handwriting from a real person. (As opposed to junk mail and bills, I mean. No one is excited about those.) Allie and I wrote “letters” to send to her […]

Cinnamon fruit dip recipe - This comes together so quickly and has only 4 ingredients! It's a 5-minute recipe!

Last Sunday, it was our turn to bring the snacks for the small group meeting we attend at church. The other group members had set the bar high – homemade guacamole (that’s amazing), fruit trays, tortilla pinwheels, and spinach and artichoke dip (also amazing).
