31 Day, 31 Smiles {Day 1}: an Introduction

I am thrilled to be joining The Nester again this year for the 31 Days Challenge

There are numerous sites out there, all better than mine, with fabulous ideas to engage your children and beautiful craft projects to share together, but this series is about simplicity.  This is about having fun with your children without the pressure to be perfect.  It's about having fun without frustration! 

My name is Kristin and I'm a mom of five children under the age of 10.  My husband works long hours (though he is off for ten weeks in the winter) and we homeschool with a mix of Charlotte Mason-style and natural learning. 

During the next 31 Days, I will give ideas for easy ways to have fun together as a family.  I will talk about identifying the things that ruin our fun times.  I will offer advice for finding time for fun in the midst of a busy, hectic, full life, and my ever-popular "How Do You...?" series will continue each Thursday, focusing on our topic. 

My prayer is that you feel welcome here and that we become friends as we walk this journey together. 


  1. Looking forward to your posts! Great job!

  2. Yeah! I've been looking forward to this!

  3. Hey, Kristin. I followed you back here from my 31 Days post. I have young grandchildren and I'm looking forward to getting some tips here! Sounds like fun.

  4. Kristin, I am SO looking forward to this!! If you can have without frustration with 5 kiddos, I'm hoping I can have fun without frustration with my 3. ;) Can't wait!

  5. I just found you through the trail of who knows where from who knows where from on the internet.

    From what I have read so far I really have enjoyed and can SO relate to!

    I have 5 children (7, 6, 4 1/2, 3 and 17 months) and I am pregnant with baby number 6 due in January.

    I live far away though in Australia!

    I will add you blog to my reading list and look forward getting to know you better!
