2aprilkids

Hi, I'm April Momma. I am a stay-at-home mother of 2 awesome kids and like all moms I wear multiple hats. Most days I'd like to think I wear all of them well at all times but that's a joke. I get by the best I can and that's the truth. Aside from being a mother I am a wife, pretty good cook, good intermediate seamstress, musician, music lover and blogger.

All of these tasks have been done on my tablet lately and dear awesome laptop you are not … Continue reading

Top Ten Happenings in My Family 2014

Our Homeschool Christmas Unit 2014 – The Best Christmas Pageant Ever Free Lesson Plans

December is my favorite month for homeschooling, but not for reasons you would think. I love the fact that we can learn without the lessons feeling so serious.
