Every woman has a little bit of Prairie Wife in her...

Love and loyalty to family and friends, determination to follow your dreams, and a little bit of sass and style is all you need to call yourself a Prairie Wife. Married or not, if you are a woman of grit and grace, this is the place for you.

A pleasure to be in Mills this past weekend to help celebrate their 100th Anniversary! It was impressive. I love how cities and towns in Wyoming take such pride in who they are and what they mean to their citizens.

We are into the third week of Summer which means it’s time to spend a few days every week on summer school homeschool ✅

Nothing super hard or major...but enough to keep them using their brains, remembering how to sit still and focus, and where they can’t wait to be done and play for a bit afterwards 😆

Note: Cowboy J (15) is doing SAT practice tests for his homeschool, but declined to be in the pic 📸😉

Here’s a link to learn a bit more about how we do what we do (and why) 📲 https://prairiewifeinheels.com/homeschool-in-the-summer/

I talk all the time about #thatemceelife but I think this shot of my day yesterday emceeing the @cityofmillswy 100 year celebration at their annual Summer Fest sums it up 😆

18 hours of standing ✅
8 miles of walking ✅
Over 2,000 calories burned ✅

And yes, I did it all in 4 inch wedge heels 👏and a big old smile 😃 on my face!

It’s an absolute honor to emcee at these events, to help keep things flowing smoothly for the people I’m working for, and to be a part of all the good things happening in our community ❤️

But...I’m definitely wearing sandals 🩴 today...and taking a nap 🤫

Are you interested in hiring me to emcee or speak at your next event?!

“Work first, then you can play.”

It’s an often-repeated phrase around here, and one that is harder than you’d think to follow through on…even as an adult!

After all, there are lots of times when I put off work to play…yet I find myself telling the Cowkids ALL THE TIME that they can have as much time to do whatever they want AFTER the work is done.

For me personally, I often use bribery to keep motivated.

Some real-life examples of bribery I’ve used in the past:

If you work out consistently for 3 months you can get yourself a Peloton Bike for the winter.

Get the dishes done and the laundry finally put away, and then you can watch a movie.

I could go on and on but I think you get the point.

The same type of bribery works for the Cowkids BUT I find myself cringing with the idea of teaching them if they do the work they can get rewarded every time...

I call this picture “How my house will look all Summer long” 🤷🏻‍♀️

All 4 of the littler Cowkids are home all day (while Cowboy J at 15 years old is a working man) and with my super strict tech and TV time rules that means they 👏 are 👏 playing 👏which creates lots of little messes.

And I’m fine with it...because I know when it’s time to clean up I can count on them to do a lot of the work ✅
