I haven’t had a randomized post in quite some time and tonight I’m feeling more random than I have in ages. I thought I would tell you about a strange email I got today from someone wanting me to pack my family up and go to MEXICO. Crazy, right? Photo Credit: Erik Page Photography But […]

Back in December I took my kids to see the King Tut exhibit in Houston at the Museum of Fine Arts. It was educational, it fit the homeschool history time-period we’ve been stuck in like mummies for what seems like eternity, AND I happen to be a history and museum LOVER. OK, I’ll admit; it […]
