The Secrets of a Reluctant Homeschooling Momma

I know it isn’t popular to say, but for me, homeschooling has never been anything but challenging – in more ways than one. In the early years, the thought of quitting surfaced regularly, but I didn’t because I couldn’t.

Me.

Because Not All Daddies Came Home

Because Not All Daddies Came Home

Jeff always came home.

I count this as one of the many blessings in our family’s life.

Four years as a soldier in the U.S. Army, and he always came home.

At the same time every day, after naps and snacks, Meredith and Kenny waited for him in the same place, on the back of …
