Support Your Child’s School with Box Tops

Disclosure: I receive monetary compensation from General Mills in exchange of my endorsement of Box Tops For Education.

Support Your Child’s School with Box Tops

Buy General Mills Products at Costco and clip Box Tops to support your school. Enter Costco Sweepstakes for a chance to win 100 Box Tops.

Well it’s that time of year!! You can’t walk into any store without school supplies smacking you in the face as you walk in. It’s August and depending on how your summer is going you’re either ready to set your children out on the curb so that you can legally have someone drive off with them (because they are driving you nuts) or you’ve just managed to get into the swing of summer and really don’t want to get back to the hustle and bustle. I’m a mixture of both. I enjoy the summer with my kids, but they have moments that make me question my sanity. Regardless, those displays are there to prepare us for what’s to come. What better way to get prepared than a trip to your local Costco!

Buy General Mills Products at Costco and clip Box Tops to support your school.

Save yourself the headache of grocery shopping for snacks, breakfast foods, and lunchbox items when you can buy them in bulk at Costco. Put out a little at a time and hide the rest, pulling them out as you need them. Yes, you will need a membership, but the convenience of not having to continuously visit the store is worth it. Moms don’t have enough hours in the day, days in a week, etc. You get my point. These kids eat like it’s a full-time job. We may as well do ourselves a favor and buy in bulk to save time.

Support your child's school with Box Tops for Education.

Not only does this save time, it helps support your child’s school. See with each participating General Mills product you get Box Tops for Education that you can cut out to give to your child’s school.

From Homeschool to High School

Transitioning Your Child From Homeschool to High School

Tips for transitioning kids from homeschool to high school

My soul feels like a balloon zipping around after it has been released. “I love it,” was my daughter’s response concluding her first month of public high school. And let me add, her first month after being homeschooled the previous 5 years!

Making the transition from homeschool to high school has been more like a giant leap rather than a mere jump. Aside from much paperwork and the dreaded physical, it has been nearly effortless. Not much has changed in the past 25 years with the exception of culture, educational standards, and technology; you know, minor stuff. Thankfully, we do not have to rely solely on our educational experiences from ancient of days to prepare for this monumental move.Continue reading

Are you tired of hearing I am bored? Do you have a nervous breakdown when your kids are at home from school? (I do.) Do not worry I love mine to the moon and back but I can’t keep them entertained forever and more importantly I do not have the funds to buy them everything they think they want.  What I do have is a desired to help them learn new things. I love when they can find those gifts that they have and use them. I can’t tell you how overjoyed I am when they are excited and happy.

I have three kids, and they are all different. They differ in age, gender, and interest. They also vary in learning style so how did I find a resolution for all three children at the same time on a limited budget?

Am I magical?
