  1. Hey there,

    Just wanted to ask you if you could post sometime about life and homeschooling not being so wonderful. You know, about those days. I had a new homeschool mom friend find your site, spend the day in tears, and then call me up to say she was putting her kids back in school. I know you only want to encourage, but as Ann Voskamp says sometimes sharing our messes with others is the most encouraging,


    1. Go to the preschoolerandpeace.com web page. She tells it like it is and has had many trials along the way. It is kind of like reading Ann Voskamp’s book. It was very encouraging and its real life…..dirt and all! 🙂
