We just finished our first week of schooling from home. Words I truly never thought I would speak, but here we are! Being the eternal optimist that I am, I cried for about a day when I saw the writing on the wall that we would be distance learning, then decided to put all that energy into making the year as magical as we can. Luckily, we had a perfect spot ready for a desk in the boys’ room, so I got to work! Now that we’ve got most of our setup dialed in, I am excited to share some of my favorite finds for this double desk learning space. Here’s our bedroom makeover for distance learning!

New Snack Option For Kids With Food Allergies
I know I have hinted a few times over the last few months about the project we had been working on so I am so thrilled to finally share the details with you all! When our youngest was born with a dairy allergy, it was a game changer. We have a few food allergies in our extended family, but it had never affected what I could eat let alone the well-being of my children. I was overwhelmed upon receiving the diagnosis, and to make matters worse, our pediatrician wasn’t much help. We decided to take matters into our own hands and started a mission to make life with food allergies a little easier.

Carter And His Nasal Dermoid Cyst
I owe you all an apology. I’ve been vague-booking over the last few weeks, and that’s not something I like to. In fact, it really drives me crazy. I’m so transparent with you all that it felt odd to hold back something so large in our life, but I also didn’t know how to put it all into words. It has been such a barrage of medical terms and “what ifs”, I wasn’t even sure what to say.
Now that we have been able to wrap our heads and hearts around this as a family and have some answers, I’m glad to finally share an update with you all.
