Homeschool moms, this one’s for you!
We did a family shopping trip tonight to look for things for the remodel, browse furniture, and work in a quick Wal-Mart run for school supplies and blue jeans.
Can I just say I feel like it is parenting done right when your child doesn’t own a pair of blue jeans without rips in them? It is! My boy plays, and he plays hard!
Okay, honestly last week I was really feeling like a failure of a mom because I kept forgetting to buy him new jeans. Then I decided to shift my perspective on it and be grateful that he is healthy enough to run and play & rip holes in his jeans. New jeans were purchased and now I’m hoping he will someday (in the distant future) rip through these too.
I am so inspired boy Kristi Clover, of Raising Clovers, and her enthusiasm and organization. I LOVE all things organization related and have a fun pantry makeover to share with you soon.
I recently watched her YouTube video titled: HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR HOMESCHOOL CURRICULUM. I loved it! We are going to blend her Crate System with our current IKEA Workboxes System.
One of my kiddos does NOT like workbooks and is easily frustrated by them. He doesn’t mind worksheets, but the feel of the book in his hands is too much. So I’m excited to adapt Kristi’s Crate System for him. I’m excited about how this will help me with planning also.
After furniture shopping and still not finding the perfect set we settled on a bean bag at Wal-Mart. haha. That’s not exactly how it went, but we actually did need a new bean bag. This style was NOT on my list, but the rest of my family got the biggest kick out of it, so I lightened up and threw it in the cart. It stayed there about a minute before my middle child decided to carry it around the store on his head.
The cashier thought it was ‘the cutest thing’, and asked if it was a Hershey’s Kiss. When I told her it was a poop emoji she responded with “Oh for Heaven’s sakes!” Then she hollered over to another [elderly] cashier to tell her what it was. That lady responded with “Oh Dear”. haha. Our cashier laughed and laughed about it and said it made her night to see that thing. She’s planning to buy one for her 14 year old granddaughter.
Have a Blessed Day, Friends!

Thanks so much for the shout out! 🙂 I love that you love my crate system so much that you shared about it. Funny about the bean bag.
