Reflection on In-Class School Learning for Kids After the Pandemic

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Thursday, April 28, 2022, In : Mom Life 
There's only 6 weeks left for the school year and I'm starting to look back at how much has happened for my two kids.

For the first half of the year, all of the kids were required to wear masks. It feels like that was so long ago but it was only a few months ago that the masks mandate was lifted for the kids around this part of town. 

It never bothered my kids that they had to wear masks. Since the start of the pandemic, I sewed their fabric masks with 100% cotton fabric, as I've read it's ...

Vegan Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie for the Waistline

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Monday, April 25, 2022, In : Vegan 

I was checking out my food items in my drawers earlier today and noticed that I had a can of pumpkin puree that will expire in about 5 months, which is still 2 months before Thanksgiving Day.

Read my personal review of this Room #121. They have an outdoor pool for room guests and last time we didn't bring any fun toys for the kids so this time, I wanted to see if we could bring them.

I called their main line and a lady answered. I asked her "We're checking in later today and I wanted to see if it's okay ...

Picking Up a Lemon Coconut Cake From Madonna Inn

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Friday, April 15, 2022, In : Madonna Inn 
This weekend is going to be a very eventful Easter weekend with my husband's birthday tomorrow and Easter happening on the following day.

I had put in an order for a small Lemon Coconut Cake at the Madonna Inn online a month ago for pick up today at 11AM. I had a few things to do today so I decided to pick up the cake last to avoid any melting frosting. 

First, I went to Ross, a block away from Madonna Inn, to pick up some small chocolate bunnies as it is Easter Day on Sunday and I still need t...
