The past few weeks I’ve learned, again, that homeschooling is much better with a schedule. This time around it’s more of a todo list than a schedule. I let the day flow as it does but anytime we start to get bored, I pick the next thing on the list. Of course we are doing…
I haven’t written in a long time. It’s been a whirlwind here – Viv being a busy body, us making time to see my in-laws and parents, a failed attempt to sell our house and move to a minifarm.. it’s a lot. I wonder how much I do to avoid feeling. Sometimes I get the…
