First Day of Homeschool Kindergarten

In my last homeschool post, I talked about our family’s decision to start kindergarten for Jack to try it a year early. Since he is only 4, we are keeping the option to scale back to preschool stuff if it doesn’t work out. Today,…

Double Hammock Series: Wiggleproof

So…I know someone taught me this finish, can’t remember who. And that person called it a Wiggleproof Double Hammock. But, upon further investigation, this doesn’t appear to a quite what most people call a Wiggleproof Double Hammock. I am not sure what this really…

Double Hammock Series: Double Sling Shoulder to Shoulder

It’s time for another carry that does not have the name hammock in it. But it does have double! The Double Sling Shoulder to Shoulder is a definitely a double hammock—two sling passes are right in the name. Why no hammock? It’s probably because…

Adjustment Disorder

I posted a photo on social media of an intake form while I was waiting to see a behavioral therapist for Jack. It was hard to post. But I knew it was necessary. Necessary to break the stigma of admitting you and your child…
