Earth Mother Musings

I'm a busy mom of four great kids, ages seven to thirteen. I write about health and wellness, family fun and adventures, parenting stuff, and raising a Pagan family.

What Inspired Me to Start Blogging

I've always enjoyed writing. I started blogging because I wanted to share with others how our family lives a greener life. My faith just naturally became a part of my blog.

How Faith Inspires How I Raise My Children

My children are my greatest blessing. I raise them with the belief that everything is sacred; people, animals, and the earth. This helps them remember to be kind to others and think before they do something.

What is a great but cheap vacation for the summer?

Earthy Mom

We take a week long camping trip every year. We camp at a State Park about an hour from our home. We try and get the same sight every year, because it is right across from the lake. The kids have a great time swimming and bike riding. This past year we invited friends to come camping with us. (They have children around our kids ages) It cost our 6 person family $85 for the site plus food and ice for five day vacation.

How do you get your teen to do their chores?

Earthy Mom

We have a rotating chore chart for all four kids. Usually they older kids are pretty good about doing their chores (when asked). It doesn't make much sense, but after dinner seems to be the best time to get the work done. It's one of the few times durning the day that everyone is in one place, so it just naturally became the time to say "hey kids you need to do your chores." The laundry and room cleaning has to be done before you do fun stuff.
