A Day in the Life of a Homeschooler #1

Recently a great idea was brought to my attention about doing some blog articles about days in the lives of homeschoolers to give more identity and attention to what we all go through and possibly advice, ideas, and inspiration.  We've all been there in lots of places and when we realize how we connect on so many levels (including off days!) we can draw closer off our experiences and be able to realize that we're exactly where we're meant to be!

Today is the first day ever of our new article and it was written by a local homeschooling girl named Karli.
