The storm we were prepping for finally hit!

Happy 2017!

Another year, another new start.

Our¬†family’s plans for the weekend involve a second Christmas celebration and church on Sunday with¬†extended family,¬† lots of laughter and delicious food, and relaxing at home later with our furry friends.

I’d love to share a little bit about why we’re currently homeschooling and why we love it!
