I’ve been in a season busy lately. Homeschooling is one of my top priorities, along with nurturing and caring for my husband and children. Knowing this, I try to be very intentional with each moment with my family.

These aren’t just great for homeschool kids, but for all kids. Think car trips (they’re engaging enough for parents too), lazy Saturday mornings, or the down time after church on Sundays.
