We Are Homeschooling!

I have struggled for weeks with how to put this post into words. Every draft I've written, though thorough and thoughtful, ends up sounding just a bit negative.

Recent storage purchases that have helped me keep my home organized. I am a neat-freak; I will pull out the vacuum and sweep the whole house on account of a few crumbs in one spot. I frequently repeat, "there is a place for everything, and everything should be in its place when not in use." [...]
