Homeschool Conference Buys

 

This past weekend I attended our state homeschool conference. I love going just to have a little get away with my husband.

Start Today

 

It’s two more days until the new year. There is one more week of vacation. But that’s not going to stop me. I’m starting today. I actually started last night, by having a goal to get up, exercise, and read God’s word. I took action. I got my exercise clothes…
