    By on May 28, 2018

    This school year flew by and I can hardly believe its time for our “year in review post again!!”

    By on August 27, 2015

    Not long ago my mom told me that her favorite part of teaching was the planning which I totally didn’t buy because I’ve seen her in the classroom and she’s a great mix of entertainment/sarcasm/love….but as I’ve jumped into the deep end of homeschool this year I’ve realize that…
