I Don’t Ever Want to See 2019 Again

Today’s video is different from my others. In honor of the new year, this video is more like a therapy session, a recap of what has probably been the hardest year my family and I have ever experienced.

Here’s to praying for a much better 2020. 🙏

But what if I told you that ORGANIZED chaos is a whole different ballgame?

How to Choose Homeschool Curriculum

As time goes on, more and more curriculum options become available to those choosing to home educate. It can be overwhelming, to say the least, especially if you’re a new kid on the block.
