Do you have any tips for helping kids concentrate on their studies?

We try to keep lessons and seatwork short. 10-15 minutes at a time and then we transition to the next activity. It keeps everyone happier and schedules running more smoothly.

What's an educational game or activity you and your kids love?

We love our iPads and all those apps. We also love board games and printable math activities.

How do you encourage a love of reading in your kids?

Thankfully, my kids love to read. It's never been much of an option. They've been read to since they were created. Books are all over the house, in every room. We go to the library weekly and we each have our own bag and card. There is no limit to what we get. I often get our unit study books for the week and they get fun or more school reading.

We're looking for creative ways to teach our kids about July 4th through art activities. If you have a fun July 4th-themed activity, please share a link with pictures we can use.

This is one of our favorite meals. We have it year round. Great to put in gallon zipped bags for a couple days to marinate - and take camping!

If you were giving a commencement speech, what's one piece of advice you'd give to young women who want to include motherhood in their futures?

Stay flexible. Have goals for possible career, but always put kids first. Think outside the box! There are so many options now for work at home moms. Don't resent the kids if you have to put your dream on hold for a little while. Team up with other moms and celebrate a community of like-mindedness and create lasting friendships and a support network.
