People don’t spend as much time outdoors anymore, and that includes kids! But did you know that outdoor time is actually really important for our kids’ development?
Mor told me once that because we homeschool Luke and don’t spend on his tuition, I can buy all the books and learning materials that I want. I’m not so sure how he felt after seeing my haul from The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale though!
Surprisingly, there’s so much to do here in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar with kids! However, not everything went absolutely smooth during our visit! Find out why I would still go back but probably not stay the night the next time!
