This new normal isContinue reading “375 days since we’ve had to leave the house for school!”

Fabulously Normal

This week has been fabulously normal! I’ve done the taxes, taken kids to sports, replaced the front tires on the car, and we are in the midst of preparing to return to in-person school.

Start your day right…

Private School Here We Come
