Annnnnd….We’re Back!

Wow, it's been quite a while since I posted anything here. Life has been quite busy. Work issues, illnesses, and just life in general. I pretty much called school off and just went for summer break.

Keeping everything organized is a challenge in and of itself. It becomes even more difficult when you homeschool! I only have one child and keeping up with all of his work can sometimes be rather daunting. I honestly have a hard time imagining how I would keep up with all the work if I had more than one.
