So, how did you like Homeschooling?

Now that we’re done with our first year of homeschool, a few people have asked me, “So how was it? Did you like homeschooling?” I thought it was a good question to reflect on and share with you. (Remember when I was agonizing over this schooling decision?!} Lydia’s school is a hybrid-homeschool. It’s more than […]

Summer Journals for Little Kids

It’s summer! School is out and our desk is already dusty. I’m loving having Lydia home every day.

The Story of The Story
