Pumpkins and PiYo

Y'all, it's been a hot minute since I've hosted a special group but I really wanted to do something amazing for anyone out there (like me) who's been struggling a bit leading up to the fall and winter months.

I'm looking for at least 5 ladies 👋 to work with me this month!

🎃 30 minute workouts using nothing but a laptop or smartphone, yoga mat and your own bodyweight (you can even do this while travelling)

🎃 Nutritional support with a superfood shake and clean eating

🎃 Fall recipe exchange (pumpkins, soups, crock pots, instant pots, healthier swaps for your fave fall sweets)

🎃 Motivation galore from me and the entire group as we rock life together for 4 weeks

This group is open to all my friends and former/current clients who want to focus on something besides stress eating this holiday season ;). Pricing varies depending on your personal needs, so jot me a message and we'll see what we can work out for you! ❤️

October 29 is our start date!  Tag a friend for some extra fun, and let's get going! Can't wait to start this with you :).

Homeschool online reaources

Hey friends!! We're in Week 7 of our homeschool adventure (hard to believe it's been 7 weeks already!!) We're at the stage where were pretty good with timing and number of subjects to do each day, though we still have a bit of trouble with focus and motivation some days ;).

I'm finding that when I can add some online resources and videos we learn a lot more than when we just read from textbooks. It's the combination that reinforces the subject and makes it more fun .

We love SciKids on YouTube, and Storybots on Netflix, to help us with science. We also use Life print and YouTube for our daily ASL lesson, and our math curriculum has some videos online to help me instruct (though it's helpful for E to watch too since the explanation is so good). We're finding new favorites each week :).

What are your favorite online supplements and resources? I'd love to hear!

Homeschool Update: Week 4

In true homeschool style, we're on Week 4 and already shifting around curriculum. 

What we're loving: All About Reading (reading), Story of the World (history), Building Blocks of Science (science), Evan-Moor Skill Sharpeners Geography (geography), Spectrum Test Practice (general knowledge), Engino building projects (STEM), and all the doodle, draw, and write books we have for extras

What we're "ok" with: Math-U-See (math), Evan-Moor Daily 6 Trait Writing (writing), and various thinking games

What we're not loving at all: Spelling You See (spelling), Mini-Luk (thinking skills)

I'm attempting to sell the Mini-Luk, and I've purchased  different spelling and thinking skills books. We're blasting through our Geography lessons too, so I'll need to add something fun when that's finished.  Any suggestions for a 1st and 2nd grade Geography lesson?  I'm also considering just swapping for units on animals and plants in the different regions (plains, rainforests, deserts, etc) since the kiddos seem to love learning about animals.


There's this game called Tenzi, where each player rolls 10 dice and keeps rolling until all 10 dice match. Then you yell Tenzi! There are cards with variations of the game, but that's pretty much the gist of it. We're using it as part of our math lessons (numbers, sequences, adding, it's all in there) and this was by far the girls' favorite thing today. We must have played about 15 rounds!

Have y'all ever heard of it? Ever played it? I highly suggest it for my #homeschool Mama's looking for a fun activity to do once the bookwork is done ❤️ #accidentalhomeschoolmama #homeschoolplay #mathtime #tenzi
