There seems to be a gazillion parenting blogs available online.   Discovering a really good blog feels  like finding a kids winter coat in January when stores have moved onto selling capri’s and  bathing suits.  “Aaaahhh….finally. High five!”  

I recently discovered a cool parenting blog at The Pioneer Woman.    Heather Sanders is a leading homeschooling journalist who inspires families across the nation. Heather lives with her husband in the East Texas Piney Woods and homeschools her three children, Emelie, Meredith and Kenny.   Her writing is smart and saucy and unexpectedly relatable to mere morals like me (aka non-home schoolers.)     If your looking for some engaging art projects this summer check out’s Heather’s picks.  You’ll also discover her other great suggestions, resources, and her unique take on full contact parenting.    I enjoy reading her blog and hope you will too.
