Meet the Veer Cruiser
Last fall, as our crew was enjoying an outing with seven kids ages newborn to four years, we spotted a mom with such a fantastic wagon that we surreptitiously took a picture of it. That wagon was the Veer Cruiser, and the more we researched it, the more we knew it was made for our lifestyle.

Homeschool vs Public School

AMANDA ASKED: Do you think homeschooling a five-year-old is a better decision than public school?
