We’ve Got Spirit! How ‘Bout YOU?!?!

Recently one of my husband's co-workers ran across my blog and saw that I like to draw and "stuff" ;>).  She brought a new type of request to test my artistic ability and see if it could stretch in the direction of school spirit.   I have a hard time saying, "No" and enjoy challenges. … Continue reading We’ve Got Spirit!

Day 6 – Jamberry Nails Experiment

Mondays are a mixture of FUN and STRESS! Mondays are our Homeschool Co-Op day.
