Why We Chose Homeschooling

She could barely hold a pencil, was adamant that her name was spelled “S-O-Y-A,” and couldn’t use the bathroom on her […]

Even though we live just a few minutes from Glenwood Park, I had never been to this beautiful gazebo spot! When Mary suggested we meet there, of course I agreed, but then shortly after realized I had no idea where it was… Oops! But I’m so glad she suggested meeting there, because it is definitely […]

I have known the Bales family since Emily was teeny tiny! I hadn’t gotten to me the newest addition to their family yet, so I was thrilled when Abby asked me to take their family photos. This was the first time EVER they’ve had professional family photos done, but they are the most photogenic and […]

I have known Jessica for over a decade. Whoa… I cannot believe I am at a point in my life where I can use DECADES as a point of reference for time that has past! I met her because she is the older sister of one of my best friends. The older sister who has […]
