It's been an off day...the two biggest helpers (my husband and oldest daughter) are on a mission trip, so I'm manning the helm solo this week. So far its actually been pretty good! I find I'm pretty efficient as the lone captain, but it definitely catches up to you! 3/4 of us that are left … Continue reading Teach where you can…
I had grand visions of what life and school would look like when we started homeschooling this year. We would all wake, dress, make our beds and the children would happily gather at the breakfast table for a hot home cooked breakfast.
