Making Time
I needed more time.      Especially since the time change, there just hadn't seemed to be enough hours in the day.  Sure, we'd been getting our school work and house work done, but there was just not enough time for doing nothing, and well, I needed more ti...

School Room Tour
Our homeschool room has been so many things over the past few years. When I was working from home full time, it was my office/sewing room. It's acted as a spare bedroom for when my stepson came to visit in the summer. Usually though, it's our school room. M...
