This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Western Governors University. The opinions and text are all my own. When I was growing up, there was never any doubt that I would be heading to college after my high school graduation. Neither of my parents had the opportunity to attend college, and [...]
I’ve said it here before- but the start of the new school year feels more like the the “New Year” than it does in January. We all should be fairly well-rested from the summer, the kids are starting a whole new adventure with the school year, and everything feels fresh and possible. I find myself setting good [...]
We have been enjoying such an awesome summer over here at the Rowley house, that I can scarcely believe that it is time to start thinking about heading back to school! Now I know that in certain parts of the country, kids are already back- with a sizable population starting up in mid-August. But for [...]
Today’s post comes from regular Momof6 contributor, Crystal Sabalaske! I have no idea how the summer passed so quickly. I mean, I’m not clueless. I understand the passage of time, but I guess I wasn’t truly aware that the kids will be going back to school in just a few weeks until I actually looked [...]
It is “science fair” season again… which means it’s time for Mom to do some serious web-research on super-cool science experiments for kids! If perhaps you are entering your own science fair season… I thought I would save you a little time and offer you this round up of fairly-simple-to-execute, can be done-in-one-weekend, almost-certain-not-to-fail elementary [...]
I was selected for this opportunity and compensated by T. Rowe Price. The content and opinions expressed here are all my own. This month on Momof6, I am sharing all kinds of ways to “Save $, Shop Smarter”- but beyond striving to improve these skills as adults- this is something that we should be teaching our [...]
We have been looking for a good way to help our younger readers tackle their 20-30 minutes of nightly reading as part of their homework. One of the tough things about having 6 kids is having enough time after school to work with each of them individually, so I have to be strategic in terms [...]
Starting this weekend, my family and I will be spending countless hours hanging out at sports fields. And while our main reason for being there is to cheer on our son or daughter who is playing soccer or football as well as for their entire team… the reality is that I will also need to [...]
“Are you ready for some football?” My 10-year old son certainly is! And while the very idea of having him play football makes me a bit nervous- he couldn’t be more excited about his first season of tackle football. And part of the reason that I am a bit jittery about the whole idea, is [...]
Boy, I would like to think that my kids are diligent enough to actually wash their hands before eating while at school….but I know better. ‘Cuz I see these kids come home from soccer and football practice with muddy/ icky hands and try to “get away” with just rushing to dinner table without making a [...]
