Our Family 2 Yours

Spread the love








Hi there I’m Barbara a mom to 6 children. For 15 years my husband and I  were foster parents to almost 50 kids. Our Family 2 Yours was started to share with others what worked for us in raising our family.

Marge Kennedy  said it well, “In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong, not by number of heads counted at the dinner table, but by the rituals you help family members create, by the memories you share, by the commitment of time, caring, and love you show to one another, and by the hopes for the future you have as individuals and as a unit.

Our children are grown now as you can see in the picture above, and we still keep in touch with some of the foster kids. I still  love to garden, blog, and spend time with my children and grandkids.  We are so glad you came to visit us and we hope you will visit again soon.




School is coming this month. Have you decided if you are homeschooling or sending your kids back to school. Checkout this An interview With a Cyber School Teacher at Cyber Schooling Mom. Some of my grandkids are going back and some are doing school at home. This post might help you decide.


If you have decided to keep the kids at home these 21 Genius Tips For Distance Learning Motivation via Lucky Little Learners will be a big help.


I have canned for years. I had a pantry at the farm that was always stocked at the end of summer to help get our family through the winter months. Check out these Canning Tips from Not Just a Housewife and get started this year. It tastes so much better and I think it is a lot cheaper.

Give your Family a boost in the mornings, homework time, and sleep with these for the Back to School Season! These essential oils don’t just smell good, they will also support your health and wellness.


Have a Wonderful Day,
