I just wanted to let you all know that my latest post for My Joy-Filled Life is now live!
If you’re not familiar with My Joy-Filled Life, it’s a blog mainly for homeschooling families. While we don’t yet consider ourselves a homeschooling family (simply because A is only a year old), it’s something we’re really excited about doing in the future.
