I’m not sure when I came up with this idea (or even if it was really my idea in the first place), but it has been very helpful for us. Sharpen both ends. It’s really quite simple. Though a tad time consuming when it’s time to sharpen, they don’t need to be sharpened nearly as […]
Friday was Chick-Fil-A’s annual cow appreciation day! It’s been a couple of years since we’ve participated, so I decided it was time for me to be more intentional in being “fun mom” – sadly, I’ve not been very good at that.
