Naturally Curly Hair

Do you have naturally curly hair?  Do you love it?  Hate it?  Have a love-hate relationship with it?  I know this last one is the way I feel about my naturally curly hair.  Some days, my hair turns out great and others, not so much.  It’s the nature of the beast and that beast is  hard to tame!  The pic below is from a day that my hair turned out well except for a funky part on top.  That piece got clipped back!

PiperWai Deodorant

If you’ve been following our journey at all, you know that natural deodorant has been a trial and error for me for over 6 years.  It has been quite the challenge to find one that works for me.  I have tried so many and none of them truly worked all day for me.  I know the dangers of using deodorants with aluminum in them so I refused to go back to using them again but I needed to find something that would keep me fresh smelling all day.  Smelling funky is definitely not my thing!

Where We Started When We Chose to Homeschool

My last post I talked a little bit about Our Homeschool Journey.  When we took the kids out of a Catholic school, we really did not know how to start the process of homeschooling.  Like I said before, I immediately contacted my friend who had been homeschooling few years at that point.  I picked her brain and asked her where I should start.
