This year had its ups and downs. Rather than dwell on the sucky parts, I am focusing on the positive and how 2013 can be better for our family. I have some goals and plans for the blog over the next couple of months and I am making some changes in our homeschool that will hopefully be for the better.
Happy New Year, everyone!
