Homeschool Freakout

Homeschool Mama Freakout!

I was sitting on the couch a few nights ago reflecting on the previous few weeks.   I was smiling while remembering all of the fun moments that our family had enjoyed together.  It was a very happy moment in my world however, that moment came to an abrupt end.   I started to feel anxious.  My smile slowly disappeared.  For some insane […]
