When My Twin Son Got Eczema {& How We Dealt With It}

First off, some of you might not remember that I have twin boys. They are fraternal and not identical in case you are wondering and I have posted about them on and off in the past especially when they were little I affectionally dubbed them the "twinadoes". Now they are big boys--11 years old and growing like weeds!


(when Christian had eczema, this little hat covered it
 but it was so bad it would even bleed)

But there was that time I shared with you about Christian who got sick when he was still a baby and you all prayed for him (we love you all) but I am not sure if I mentioned that I had also gotten really sick too around the time they were 4 months old. I was breastfeeding both twins (I had breastfed most of my children until they were two) and somehow I picked up a nasty bug somewhere and got really sick and had to be hospitalized.

The doctor told me I had to stop breastfeeding in order to get better.

So I did.

And we put the twins on formula.

One did well but the other didn't.

He broke out with eczema.

All over his forehead and his face.

Then soon on his arms and body.

We tried all kinds of over the counter products which helped with the symptoms but did not get rid of it.

So we took him to the doctor and the doctor suggested we change his formula.

And we did.

And it went away.

It was that easy.

I never though that eczema could be food related but it was. I am so glad that the nurse made that connection!

But some of you are still going through this with your child and you are wanting to learn more.

I recently stumbled upon this helpful book on eczema:





Right now you can find this book in The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle 2017 I mentioned last week.

It comes with 68 ebooks, 28 ecourses, 10 printables and workbooks, 1 membership site & one summit on healthy living. It is 99% off and only $29.97 for a limited time. I've gotten these bundles before and have been so blessed by them!

I hope it is a blessing to you!

Just Released: The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle 2017 {& Early Bird Special}!



These past few years have brought so many changes to my family and their lives. We had to change our diets to:
  • gluten free
  • dairy free
  • low sugar
  • more veggies and fruits
This was due to sensitivities and allergies and for better health. You can only imagine how challenging that was for me when I would go food shopping for a family of 11! Thankfully through time and patience I learned what I needed to and things are flowing smoothly today.



But I know that there are many of you out there trying to make better changes for your family. Maybe it might might be for food but that you need more exercise in your day, or you are trying to use non-toxic chemicals in your home. We are all at different stages in our lives. 

That is why I wanted to mention The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle 2017 that was released today.

How to Begin Nature Journaling in Your Homeschool

Have you ever tried nature journaling to liven up your homeschool day?

My children look forward to the break from every day schoolwork to stop and enjoy a chance to draw and appreciate nature around us.

You don't really need much to start out with--we just try to keep it really simple.

Here is what we use:







They can be as cheap or as expensive as you'd like.

We would go on a nature walk and collect all kinds of things such as:


  • leaves
  • crabapples
  • sticks and branches
  • feathers
  • acorns
  • rocks with special shapes



Really just anything that caught our interest and that we would like to sketch. 

I ended up making a nature table to display all our items and so the kids can touch them and play with them freely when they wanted to. 

We also got some field guides and books from the library of pictures of nature in case they wanted to sketch something from there.





I let them have about a half hour to sketch something they like and to have fun with it.

It is a great way to let them have some creative time to express themselves through drawing. 


(Thankfully we didn't see one of these on our nature walks
 but my son really wanted to sketch this one!)






Remember they don't have to be perfect and you don't need to have any rules if you don't want to.

In a later post I will share our nature table with you!


Do you like to nature journal in your homeschool?

If so, please share about it in the comments!

Poetry Tea Time Part Two- The Art Brain Box

Last week I shared our first Poetry Tea Time post with you.




It was so much fun to do--I shared the books that we used and what our Tea time menu looked like.



 I also promised I would share more about our special Art BrainBox game that we used as the second part of our Tea time that day!




I wanted to add some variety into the Poetry Tea Time and decided that teaching art appreciation in a game form would be a nice way to add the subject in.




It was so simple and the kids loved it!

Inside the box contains art cards, sand timer, and dice.

All you do is pick out a card.




And let the children study it for 10 seconds. We gave each child a turn.

(Can you believe that Van Gogh painted this when he was in a mental asylum?)

Then you roll the dice and whatever number it comes out to, you read that question on the back of the card out loud for the children to answer.



If you play with just a few children you can let them collect the cards they got correct and whoever gets the most wins. Since we had a lot of children we kept it simple and had fun with it--there were plenty of laughs and giggles going around. It was a quick and easy way to get some learning in.

It's not all girly type art either--one card had a dragon and another had a skull and sword and there are art of men too. My five boys liked that. There was one card that had a tiny bit of immodesty (from the Renaissance period) but I quickly got rid of that card before we even played it.



I love that they ALSO have these boxes for:






So you can teach a variety of different topics that you might have an interest in.

And it is so nice they even have some for Preschoolers too:


I definitely plan to get more in the future!


If you are interested in getting this Art game you can find it HERE.


What a great way to add in art to your homeschool day and keep it fun!

In my next post on homeschooling I will share a post about our nature walks and journaling. If you don't want to miss it you can subscribe to get our future posts right to your inbox.




I hope you enjoyed our pictures!





How do you like to make learning fun for your children?
