Bored? Let’s Math!


From Kristina: We’re about halfway through summer, which means that you’re probably ready for school to start again mostly because your kids are telling you they’re “bored.” (This is when I like to tell them about “jump rope” or cue up videos of kids in other countries playing happily with a stick and an old […]

Stanley Cup Snack Pinterest Roundup


I love hockey.  LOVE it.  I will willingly get out of bed at 4:30am on a Saturday to watch my kid play defense. Okay, so not like, super willingly- but I am happy by the time the puck drops. Having the Washington Capitals in the Stanley Cup Finals is amazing at my house.  We are […]
