Hi, Kelsey here, I usually manage comments so I'm sorry I don't have the answer but I know an all time favorite is LEAVES - so classically fall!
Hi, here's the recipe from an old blog post of Erica's! https://www.laddventure.com/2014/10/soup-of-the-week-vegan-lentil.html
Hi! This is the one we have: https://www.amazon.com/Kidscooking-Very-Slightly-Messy-Manual/dp/0613776461/ref=pd_sbs_14_t_1/144-7912477-1250954
Whew, injuries are so hard! They make you so thankful for the abilities you normally have, and certainly have more empathy for people living with physical disabilities.

My approach for now is trying to educate myself and making sure I'm showing up and getting to know the avenues for expressing my views - don't want to just show up and start complaining if I'm not pitching in and volunteering/getting to know what's really going on at the school. I have been really happy with how receptive the administration is! As for diversity the Instagram feed @theconciouskid (https://www.instagram.com/theconsciouskid/) has been a source of education for me so I hope to use some of those resources to inform my proposals. I will share more over time!

What's been most frustrating are parent-provided snacks for the whole class that are straight dessert (cookies, rice crispie bars...) and candy rewards. Those are the things I hope I can make improvements on.

It's so good to have a strategy in your back pocket. I have not read about that tactic but have heard good things!

Fall is always slow to arrive here but this year it's been especially dragging. And I've been slow to get back into my creative school year routine. But with the heat breaking a little bit and our routines starting to feel more established I'm feeling my creative energy coming back. Hooray! Here's what's been going on lately... Weather + mood + the boot August and September were unexpectedly tough months for me. It was HOT. So hot. This summer was the hottest and driest that we've ever had. School drop off and pick up, running errands, and managing the boys... Continue reading

Thanks, Amanda! It's wonderful when they are part of a community also reinforcing good self-control tactics.
Haha, oh that's so hard! When they are so insistent but you just have NO IDEA even of the context.
Thanks so much, Nadine!

The end of July and beginning of August has been a flurry of activity at the Wharton household. I'm just now having time to catch my breath! Summer ended for us on July 31 and school started August 1. I do appreciate starting new things on the first of the month! We celebrated the end of the summer with a family date to Culinary Dropout, one of Chris's and my favorites restaurants, and introduced the boys to dipping fresh baked pretzels in cheese sauce. The first day of school was great and both boys were excited to head to pre-K... Continue reading

Hi Alissa! This makes me SO happy!! It's such a better system I just want everyone to know about it. Honestly they should make it the default. Thanks so much for reading. Glad you found my blog :)

Thank you so much! It is life changing. Sadly I did not have anything similar in my Outlook when I was using it. But maybe it exists or you could hack it in a way to set up something similar. I think I mostly had lots of folders that I tried to keep tidy but would have to leave active emails just in one long list. Maybe assigning different color codes to them? Not sure if you could get those to show up different places, hmmmmmm. Give it a good go -- good luck!
