It appears we are a routine family!
So here’s how a real wife, mom, daughter, woman, studies the Bible in 2017.
Our homeschool plan for this school year!
I would say TGIF, but we have a super busy weekend. Being a SAHM, I try with all my might to protect our weekends so that we have uninterrupted family time as much as possible. This weekend…not so much. It will make for a somewhat stressful weekend, if I don’t watch my heart and my… Continue reading Friday Free for All #1
