Many years ago on this blog, I would write a post weekly (back when I used to write two to three times weekly WHO THE HELL WAS I?) titled Three Things.

I started over a week ago, and I haven't really told anyone outside of my circle (other than homeschool groups on Facebook, then breaking the news to my Instagram followers). No real reason other than I don't… Continue reading So I Guess I’m a “Homeschool Mom” Now
