On Running the Race

As a homeschooler, I was allowed to join the track and field day at the nearby school every year. The day was filled with obstacle courses, relays, running races, and a celebratory box of 2 in 1 flavoured Nerds to consume on the bus ride home. I loved every part of that day except for...

Snow and Sentiment

"How is it Christmas already? I feel like this year went by really fast!" Someone exclaimed last week. Did you feel that too? Most of us felt that way at our house this year.
