I knew I was going to continue homeschooling even though we had just […]

Homeschooling Distraction

I knew this year would be more challenging now that Chaz is a little older and still quite demanding when it comes to getting attention. So, I figured since I would be working with Brayden and Aurora together he would either a) demand my attention in other ways or b) want to join in. I […]

We have a curriculum

Well, I did it! After tossing around the idea of getting a curriculum this year or just making my own, I decided to get a curriculum! Talk about a last-minute decision!
