  • Stuff I learned while home schooling for a few days

    I planned it all out and thought I had it full proof. Nope, not even close. This is what I learned. 1. The chrome book is really easy to break. You drop it and the screen it no good. Kids drop everything. 2. Passwords... You have to write them down. Kids can remember the most unli... Read more

  • Testing out systems to help lower blood sugar spikes to assist in weight loss
