    I have been following your blog for about 2yrs. It’s always a joy to come visit. I love that we are weather opposites. It was -2F when went to Mass this morning!Mine are bundled and yours are in shorts. Thank you for sharing your family

    I stumbled upon your blog recently and absolutely love it! Just wanted to send a bit of encouragement your way. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your family and adventures with us. It is a blessing to me to be able to read and learn from other homeschooling moms, and exciting to me that you have 8 children. We have 4 boys and it seems overwhelming at times, but I think….if you can do it….then I can too! Thanks! 🙂
