Creating a space for kids’ virtual learning

We started setting up the kids’ virtual learning space in July, so we would have enough time for items to be delivered, and make sure they wouldn’t sell out just like so many items have during the pandemic.

The multipurpose room in the basement was the location chosen for this set up in our home. Finding space when you live in the city, in a rowhouse, can be very challenging, but we are making the most of every area in our home, now, more than ever.

How to Set Up a Virtual Learning Space for Kids

In March, when schools closed in our area, we didn’t know what to expect, how to help the kids grow their knowledge, where to best set up their spaces so they could focus and learn, etc. With time, we all got into the new routine. We learned how to use new apps and structure our days to fit virtual classes, activities, meetings, etc. It wasn’t easy, but we, somehow, adapted. 

Recycle it Right!

I have learned so much this past month about how to recycle right and also be a more conscious customer, thanks to #plasticfreejuly. During this period, our local newspaper published an article about how the recycling process is in our city. Now I realize that I was just putting in the recycling bin all the things I wished could be recycled. I was “wishcycling”!

DIY: Chalk Paint Furniture

I love a DIY project and this one, using chalk paint, is very simple! A couple years ago I got a desk to use as our drop off zone by the front door. This beauty came from the second chance store, and we paid just $20 for it. My goal has always been to paint it, but you know how life is, so many things come up, so many other projects need our attention. It wasn’t just until now that I finally got it done!
