My Favourite Posts Of 2016

It’s been a lot of fun looking back over the last year on the blog. I didn’t write as much I wanted to (because pregnancy is not fun), but here are some of my favourite posts for 2016. That Time We Moved House And Then Got Burgled. The getting burgled part wasn’t fun, but we …

{Homeschooling} A Day In The Life

I frequently get asked what it’s like homeschooling with a newborn. So picture this: two preschoolers quietly sitting at the table, attentive and obedient, eager to do the work.
