I don’t know about you, but when I was thrown into the reality of homeschooling I had a day or so of complete fear and anxiety! I’ve never been the amazing Pinterest mom that can whip up a batch of ANYTHING and have my kids play with it for hours and #imokwiththat
So, I reached out to friends and my fit community and everyone pitched in to help one another. I’m hoping one of these activities may help you too! Please share with anyone that may need some ideas and stay tuned to my Instagram channel and stories >> @bodyrebooted and I’ll keep sharing whatever I can find!! And HANG IN THERE….You’re doing GREAT! xo
