It made me so happy that the hard work I have been doing for homeschooling my children is all worth it!

Reading Cave Crave

Last week I got a new office chair (my back thanks you!) The next day, our office manager offered us the box it came in. I found the good boxcutter. Intrepid Brooke found the brown butcher paper, scissors and a mile of tape and 45 minutes later...

And, since I broke my ankle in July and am recently out of the BOOT but still with a tender ankle, I admit to being just a little wimpy. For these reasons I brought some flowers from the haha to draw in the cool of my little studio.
