As part of the SchoolHouse Review Crew, I got the chance to review First Start Reading from Memoria Press.

No, I’m not talking about math. I’m talking about estimating what your child can do. I recently realized that I’ve grossly underestimated Boobear. See, I’m always aware of his challenges and try to keep them in mind while not focusing so much on them that they become him.

I tried being normal...worst two minutes of my life.
Introduction
I'm a homeschooling mama trying to keep up with a 2e son who wants to know all the things right now. I'm married to my best friend, have all I need and quite a bit of what I want, and learning to be content. Life is good!

I'm also a work at home mama doing freelance writing and a few other freelance jobs. I'm an author and am working on my next book.
