Summer is winding down and autumn is just around the corner! I'm busy doing all sorts of things to make sure we are ready for the next transitional period in our home. Confession: I'm a big proponent of year round homeschool. But we didn't do that this year. Why? Honestly, everyone needed a break. It's … Continue reading Homestead Update
